    The duty will depend on the type of goods. Can you say what it is you are planning on importing?

    Try googling H M Customs. Not an easy website to understand the duty but I think its 3.5% on goods 34-136 pounds sterling (assuming pen parts?) +VAT. Dont quote me on that though. I think I paid something similar a few years ago from importing from China.

    Theoretically you will be charged duty on the value of the goods - which I think for a laser will be 2.7% Other - Trade Tariff - GOV.UK
    On top of that you will be charged VAT on the sum of the value of the goods, the value of the duty and the value of the shipping.
    You will also be charged a handling fee from the carrier, which is free from both duty and VAT. (Parcel Force is about 10)

    Gone are the days, unfortunately, where the theory is any different to the practice I'm afraid Barry.
