    You are charged VAT a 17.5% of the declared value.

    Plus Duty, plus a handeling charge (£8 with RM)

    Isn't the handeling charge £4 for Royal Mail and £8 for Parcel Force?

    I think Harvie hasn't had his yet either....

    As for VAT on imports I think they also apply the VAT to the postage costs....so its not just the value of the goods.

    Yeah my copy is still gone with the wind If it were any game I planned on ordering this year I'd be fine, but I've been waiting for this game for months and won't be able to play it if it doesn't arrive soon (got all the uni exams and coursework due in soon!)

    If the game gets stuck in customs and we get charged it'll cost just shy over £35 £6 for VAT and 3% import tax and £4 for royal mail to say "Gimme moneh!"

    Got my cod4 from yesasia.com - took a little over a week to arrive - no customs charges as they post to their warehouse in the UK first and then re-post to you - really good service albeit a little longer than posting direct. Guarantees no import tax!

    Actually received the Aussie PAL version too! - total bargain - pre-order + quidco coupon + quidco cashback = less than £20!!!

    (unfortunately, the price has increased now!!)

    I've only ever bought one import game (Rainbow Six: Vegas) before, and that was from Play-Asia, but it sounds like I should probably look more at YesAsia for any future purchases then (thanks for the info) :thumbsup:

    I just got custom charged *[COLOR="Red"]TAXI FOR HARVIE*, [/COLOR]for cod4 £12, does anyone else think they going to be clamping down hard around xmas time :|?

    £12?! that's almost half the cost of the game!

    Edit: Just got my card as well £8 for admin charges sucks

    did u guys receive the game from play-asia then????

    sorry to VeryVery for hijacking the thread!

    sorry:-(

    yeah I got my game today, got taxed a total of £4.28 and £8 shipping fee, ouch!, I think they might be more vigilant because its xmas and more stuff is comming on.

    so in total you paid around £36?

    £37 :|, and got it over 2weeks late

    Taken from HMCustoms website,

    If you purchase goods through the Internet you should be aware that customs duty and VAT will be payable, as follows:

    * Customs duty - if the amount of duty is £7 and over.
    * Import VAT - if the value of the goods is £18 and over.

    just got my cod4 2day, do i have to pay the custom charges seperate? so i have to ring a number of something to pay? got charged £11....anyway tell me as this is my first time payin custom charges

    You got it before paying?

    If you have cod4 in your hand then you've gotten away without paying. If you have a card advising that there's £11 to pay, you will need to pay at the sorting office, when you pick it up.

    have you got your game or did you get a slip saying how much you owe?

    i got the game.....i dont know anything about a slip, but on the box of the package it says i should ring a number to pay the £11

    ...weird!

    sorry ppl, just found out my brother went and got the game, he recieved the card in the morning and went to get the game and paid the customs charge....lol...sorry, i was at uni so i didn't know, i got back from uni and cod4 was there

    Nice brother you have! My 2 wouldn't even give me a lift to the depot, had to take 2 buses to get there!

    lol, he not nice, he wanted to play the game first so he took the money from my room and drove down, got the game and played the game without tellin me, he was playin it since 12, i got back from uni at 5.....not so nice now is he? :thumbsup: :giggle:

    Grrrr I hate anything like that - I even hate someone reading the newspaper before me, if I buy it, I want to be the first to use it!!

    Customs charges seem to be impossible to work out, I went to the HMRC website to try to work out how much customs I would have to pay on two bridesmaids dresses costing $110 each, I'm still clueless!

    I have stopped shopping with pla-asia, as EVERYTHING I order from them gets custom charged, and the first thing I had them send was Final Fantasy PSP, £36 VAT and £11 for UPS to do the dirty work , plus it had already cost me $30 to ship with the sly gets!!

    Have been using games-asia since they send things via regularpost and tend to mark the value down on the package :
