Goods purchased from outside of EU (converted from USD to UK£) £5000.00
UK Duty at 3.5% £ 175.00
Cost of shipping to UK £ 500.00
SUB TOTAL £5675.00
VAT @ 20% on sub-total £1135.00
TOTAL COST INC. UK DUTY & VAT £6810.00

So in this example, the total of UK duty and VAT (tax) payable to import these goods to the UK is £175 + £1135 which is £1310, along with the shipping cost of £500.

After Brexit everything might change...
Thanks Karel - that import /postage cost would really eat into the potential 60% purchase price saving.
Am prob best trying to do a deal with a reputable UK dealer and try before i buy.
