Am looking to buy a watch and when looking on the web I've noticed that its quite a lot cheaper to buy one from the US (because of the exchange rate) and have it shipped over via fedex.
I know you are supposed to pay import duty (4.5% I think) and VAT (17.5%) on watches shipped in from overseas.
Do you always get collared for this or is it just if you are unlucky? Do Fedex ask for the money on your doorstep or do you get in invoice from the gov - or are you supposed to declare it yourself.
I've ordered the odd thing from the US and never had to pay it but this is 400 quid+ so might catch someones attention.
