Could make buying Guzzi parts from outside the UK very difficult if not impossible.

I saw this on Teletext. A Dutch and Belgium firm said they would send stuff anywhere in the world except the UK.
Seemed oddly discriminating..

Not discriminating really. If you had much higher costs sending stuff to one particular country would you not do the same thing?
HMRC now require overseas traders selling to the UK to register with them (for a substantial fee) and then collect UK VAT on the products and pay it in to HMRC. Plus loads of paperwork.

I can see all parcels being valued at £134 or less.

I can't understand it.

5 days in and by now I would have expected everything to have been running like clockwork and no one from the EU throwing their Toys out of the pram  or for that matter any need for further negotiations or compromise to smooth things out from either end.

What a naive silly old fool I have been.LOL

Sh1t happens and has the ability to travel in both directions.


I feel an " Are we there yet" moment coming on.LOL


Politics and particularly Brexit has been delightfully absent from this forum and long may that continue.

I gather this isn't political, but a decision by HMRC.

True Brian but directly linked to Brexit and we all know how emotive that can be.

There will be loads of instances such as those quoted to indicate what a mistake it all was.

Only time will tell and I'm talking a year or two not days

It's the exact same with everything the plebiscite vote on,, (sorry Iceni, not sure you count in the working classes Big smile), whether it be a general election, Brexit, or whatever,  exactly the same!

Three years down the line those that voted to stay in will say, " Things would have been much better if we'd stayed in, this would have happened, this would have been better etc., etc.!"

If we'd voted to stay in, three years down the line those that voted to leave would say , " Things would have been much better if we'd left, this would have happened, this would have been better etc., etc.!"

'Same old, same old', as they say, fact is, it was for something that was to happen or not to happen in the future and nobody has a clue what would have happened either way, as we can't predict the future.

End of the day, the country voted to leave, we just need to get up and get on with it.

What do I know about Brexit?, bugger all, for 3 weeks I was looking on the cereal shelves in Asda thinking it was a new product from Kelloggs!

I mentioned it because it could have a direct affect on members of this forum in the UK, not for any political reason.
Why HMRC decided to follow this route I have no idea. I can only assume it's to save them work.

For some time now the USA changed it's import rules if you look on Gutsibits you will see the note 

"These parts cannot be sent to the USA/Canada" .....it is not just the EU/UK .... Customs have cracked down for a while now, due to being able to X-ray everything is one reason.

The International Companies have often changed the Co name as UK and others demand they pay taxes due the loopholes are being closed. 

Much of this goes on unnoticed by the public as few order items likely to be seriously affected. If you look on e-bay for most things you will often see exactly the same item direct from China less than one in the UK .... all due to the way imports did work, this is likely to change unless "Trade Agreements" are signed of course

Some years ago I bought a set of Hyperpro springs from Todd in Arizona? I think. It was cheaper than buying from the manufacturers in Netherlands even though they would have passed over my house on the way to the states and back.

I think there is going to be a lot of confusion for a time.
Hopefully it will get ironed out eventually.
