Nah, there is still VAT payable. Its still the same limit it always was, i.e over £18 as duty was never payable until your DVD order was over £210 in the past. So if you order this then expect a £12 charge. £4 VAT and £8 PO charge.

Not worth it IMO.

Wait for the region B's for around £35.

Or order this:

cdwow.com/BOU…445

Which is the Australian version released in March.

It's actually £21.99 over the VAT free limit of £18 so if the parcel was stopped you will pay the import VAT plus royal mail handling charge of around £8.

Not saying it would get stopped by customs as they can only stop and inspect so many parcels but you have to take it into consideration before ordering as if they apply the charges their is no way of getting out of paying them

Ah yes sorry its personal ones that are £36. Well never had a problem … Ah yes sorry its personal ones that are £36. Well never had a problem from playusa or movietyme on any imports even before the duty raise. But if you want it your going to have to import it so this is the cheapest price anyway.



Just mentioned it in case anyone was unsure. Most parcels make it through but it does your head in when they get stopped and royal mail kindly chage you for handling it...lol

Have only ever ordered stuff around £20 from playusa and that came through fine as normally get any import stuff from cd wow as they pay any customs duty up front

Should be a good boxset and look stunning in HD:thumbsup:

No its £17 cheaper as you wont get a charge from cd-wow.

These Bourne sets from play have been getting customs charges slapped on them.

Don't listen to people telling you they never get caught, PlayUSA are just as likely to get caught as anywhere else. I have always got caught with PlayUSA for over £18 stuff as far back as I can remember, at least 6 years of buying stuff from them. You may get lucky with playusa but cd-wow (and movietyme) you wont get caught guaranteed.

Up to you.

No just didn't want people blaming me if they get done for VAT on an import. They will just have to make do with dvd or HD-dvd instead until universal release it in the UK on Blu-ray.



Ps There is no guarantee you won't get away with charges from cd-wow either.

Oh fair enough didn't know they had changed that. They used to post from Hong Kong.

They never have done. The label says its from Hong Kong and there is a customs label on it but its posted from Crawley or somewere like that. It never goes through customs. Its why it gets here so fast. The customs thing and the Hong Kong thing is a charade to please the authorities so they can say they are not selling forgein DVD's from the UK, which is illegal.
