It´s annoying, that you cannot pay via SEPA like on any other Amazon website in the EU. On Zavvi you have to pay custom charges and HMV is only delivering to UK.Yes, those prices are crazy.
If you are outside the UK, you pay the delivery and customs charges also.
That would be around £50 for this...

What dou you think of it?. Is this any better than before - at least it seems to be a more vast system, what is probaly necessary to solve the upcoming traffic problems caused by Brexit, but is it more eficcient?Zavvi Euro prices now includes EU vat
If you not noticed recently in past few weeks Zavvi parcels even for items shipped from guernsey has IOSS and code on parcel
IOSS is the new EU (Import One Stop Shop) system for passing on Vat to revenue in EU delivery country
If a postal carrier/courier in a EU country looks for Vat payment from you it's a mistake if the parcel has listed IOSS and code
A barcode is also ususlly on the parcel customs in your EU country is meant to scan it and will know Vat has already been paid
If you do get hit for Vat by customs which should not happen Just contact Zavvi provide a copy of the Vat invoice you paid postal carrier/Courier or Customs and Zavvi will refund you that p
Either customs or your postal carrier in your EU country does not understand the New EU IOSS or OSS system or is not paying attention to the info on the parcel
the EU has set a date for introducing the VAT eCommerce package which includes new rules regarding eCommerce and VAT which will take place in July.www.globalvatcompliance.com
The whole purpose of the new system is to avoid vat not been paid and also will speed up delivery as customs checks get cleared quicklyWhat dou you think of it?.

Thanks for the info, I wasn´t aware of that.The whole purpose of the new system is to avoid vat not been paid and also will speed up delivery as customs checks get cleared quickly
You then don't need postal/carrier/courier be looking for Vat payment has it's already been paid
All this was decided on before UK even voted on leaving EU so not really about brexit but all retailers that are based outside EU and shipping to EU
A good few years ago all the EU countries voted on various amendments these changes was done in stages
UK voted to this vat change also as at that time they not even decided yet on asking UK public if they wanted to leave EU
It was meant to apply from January 1st 2021 but due to Covid-19 was delayed to July 1st 2021
Retailers based outside EU need to register for a Vat ID using the new system they can register in any EU country as that will cover the other EU countries
The One Stop Shop collects the vat from the retailers and then pass those payment to the EU country revenue thet item was shipped to
This applies to items with a value €150 or less
Retailer is meant to apply EU vat at chechout or include in price
Vat rate that is used is 21%
The problem is some retailers based outside EU not registering for the new IOSS or OOS system
