If you buy an item from Amazon.co.uk for the value of £10.89 with free delivery, do you have to pay import costs/ tax/duty etc....? If anyone could help that would be great,. Worried I am going to get a huge bill from the post office. Oh, the item is only pens!!!

No tax due on £10
Not sure on the values before tax can be added but think sometimes these things can be hit or miss, also if the seller marks item as gift i believe theres less chance of a charge

Thank you for your reply.....
I know the value should be more than £10.89, the rrp is probably £60! Does the tax go on the price I pay, or the value of the goods?
depends on what they put on the customs label, they will usually go by that unless they think its been under declared

Are they genuine then if the RRP to what you're paying is that different?

I think the price is a mistake. I am sure they will cancel the order anyway. They seem genuine as they have high % feedback here and on amazon.com.
customs won't charge below £20
The limit is £15 people! (Assuming the OP meant Amazon.com and not Amazon.co.uk as mentioned in their post)

Hi, thank you for the info. The pens are from an American company selling on Amazon.co.uk.
