Doing my Xmas shopping from abroad..

I believe up until recently the threshold for imports was £18 before I start paying VAT and Duty. There was some talk of that amount increasing to £100.

Can anyone confirm / deny this?

Thanks in advance.

Just mark it as a "gift"
Duty has been changed but VAT is the same which means you will get charged the £8-12 + vat from your postage company on anything over £18
So if I buy something for £20 (inc postage) I will be charged 15% VAT on that, which adds £3, but because they won't collect any payment unless it's over £7 I won't pay anything?
