Sinden Lightgun - Taxes and duty's?
« on: December 06, 2021, 05:58:59 pm »
I wanted Sinden lightguns now i have to order them and wait 3 months, no problem there, i can wait, but it has happened in the past that when ordering outside of Europe the belgian customs just take the price of the object and ask that as import taxes meaning a 80 euro gun becomes 160,
if they pay taxes when shipping this is not the case, so anyone here not living in the UK had to pay import taxes or duty on Sinden Lightguns?

Not sure about belgium specifically but some countries have added duties at customs some not.
Seems to be a mixed bag from what I have seen.

It seems to be 20 pounds for shipping i assume that includes taxes, otherwise it is a ripoff,
only method of paying was trough a credit card, what is that about, just ordered a prepaid one at my bank, hope it works
I am against credit cards, in the 80's 90's my parents got one and money was taken out of their account, after a month upon receiving it,
it was all resolved with a phone call but, they said never again, ever since we are against it.
