How much was the actual item? If more than £18 customs will hit you

Quickly email the seller and ask him to mark the item as 'Gift' on the customs forms, that will reduce the risk of your item getting pulled by UK customs.

VAT about £10
royal mail collection charge for above - £12

Mail the seller pronto...get them to mark it as under £18 or as a gift to reduce the possibility....

gift only reduces the risk of it being stopped....

I ask mine if they will put it through as £10 so it doesnt get stopped

Original Poster

if it has been posted through ups will it still have anything to do with royal mail

Depends on which UK company UPS contract work out to, in any case it will still go through customs.
