As title says, looking to import something from the U.S, any ideas how much it will set me back?

Thanks in advance.

depends if its clothes / electricals etc.

You will probably be also charged [email protected]% plus some couriers can and do charge an administration fee depending on whom delivers your item.

As mentioned above, really depends on the item - in some cases there is no duty (such as camera bodies) but with others there is. (camera lenses are 7%). It's lenses I've mainly imported which are %duty+%vat+admin fee which added up to a reasonable percentage of the original cost of the item.
