Oh wise Talkbass forumites, I come to you for knowledge and advice! I'm looking at a few possibilities for importing basses from US websites to the UK, like Bass Central. However, I'd like to know how much import tax one would expect to pay on a bass coming into the UK (a TB search came back with a few answers). I know I'd also have to pay shipping and VAT. As I understand it, your final amount is worked out like this: ((Value of bass x import duty) + shipping) + VAT @17.5% = Price paid As you can see, the only factor I'm missing is what the import duty is. UK TBers, how much was your US bass worth, how much did it cost in the end, and how much of that went on import duties?
