Buying from abroad

Recommended Posts

Anybody got any experiences of buying kit from abroad post-Brexit? 

I'm looking at getting something from Teleskop Express in Germany. 

Any thoughts on delivery times and duty payable?

Assume after your order when despatched to you the courier will send you a full vat bill plus the import duty relevant to the item plus their charges for the service of doing the customs paperwork. That’s how it works elsewhere outside eu. They usually require payment before delivery.

I've ordered some stuff from TS post Brexit (not expensive though). I found there was a slight delay of a day or so, probably as they're working the export duties etc, but no other problems as far as I can see. There are extra forms to fill out for any returns I believe.
