Is there import tax buying items from Italy?

Posted 11th Sep 2008
I just bought a few things from a company called Yoox. Does anyone know if there will be any import tax charged on it? I didn't realise the company is shipping it from Italy until after I paid.

No there shouldn't be as Italy is part of the EU.

Just found more info after some searching. There will be no import tax if buying clothes sent within EU. Thanks John

If you buy goods online from within the European Union (EU)

You will not be charged Customs duty or import VAT.

Alcohol and tobacco products from within the EU cannot be sent to the UK unless arrangements have been made to pay UK excise duty in advance. For more information on this please see the ‘Distance Selling’ procedures in Public Notice 203 Registered Excise Dealers and Shippers.

The 27 EU countries are the UK, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Germany, Italy, The Irish Republic, Denmark, Greece, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Finland, Austria, Malta, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Slovenia, Cyprus, Bulgaria and Romania.
