Just to clarify - according to HMRC Customs & Import Duty is NOT charged on goods from The Channel Islands. However, may be subject to VAT. Having said that the checkout price for the Xbox 360 version includes £10.35 VAT, so presumably they are authorised under the MoU.

In other words the price stated is the price you pay. I hope this clarifies the situation for you.

3.4 Prepayment of import VAT on goods purchased over the Internet
UK Customs has special arrangements that allow some overseas traders to charge, collect and pay over to us the import VAT for goods purchased on the Internet that would normally be chargeable at the time the goods are imported. These arrangements operate under Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) signed with certain overseas customs and postal authorities. The countries that have an MoU with HMRC are: Channel Islands, Hong Kong, Singapore and New Zealand. Overseas traders wanting to use this procedure must be authorised to do so by their authorities.

Once authorised, foreign businesses are issued with a unique authorisation number, which they must show on the customs declaration or packaging. Also they will include the statement 'Import VAT Prepaid'.

Where these arrangements are used you will not be charged a Royal Mail handling fee when you receive your package.

If you are a VAT registered business and purchase goods for use in your business you should keep the outer wrapper and invoice from the supplier to support your claim to input tax.

Just received a reply from Gam.co concerning VAT:

Any VAT applicable to the sale will be applied at the checkout.

Kind Regards,

In other words they are confirming they are authorised under the MoU.

Incidentally, has anyone found it cheaper anywhere else?

They're part of The Book Depository Group (Annual turnover to June 2009 was £61m) so they're not a small outfit.

I sent them 2 queries and both were answered within 12 hours, so pretty good on the CS front as well it seems.
