There are variations with how things are done in the EU and we benefit by those with experience knowing the best system to use. Post Brexs*t there won't be variations at all and those least expecting it will be paying the price. Imports from USA will not be cheaper. VAT on imported goods from USA will remain the same.

Many people are sleepwalking into a very expensive life which will lead all of us to be poorer. Many are raising alarm bells and it's appropriate for them to be ringing.

VAT is already payable at point of entry to the EU. The UK becomes that point of entry and we will become free to set the VAT rate as we see fit.

At the moment of course the EU dictates that our VAT cannot be lower than 15% for most goods, 5% for goods on a pre approved list, and 0% only for goods that were at that rate in the UK before 1991.

Once Brussels is not dictating our VAT rates I am expecting to see a reduction in order to bolster business in the post Brexit calming period.

I remain hopeful that it will not be too hard, but I have doubts that there will be clarity even after 31st Oct.
Lets keep it on topic guys, we don't want this degenerating into a Brexit debate and falling fowl of Rule 3.

So apart from the obvious physical form and function, how would bringing your doll to a meet in the UK be any different then rocking up to same meet in your vehicle?

Like, I don't understand it, is this saying you got to pay import taxed on your own property to use in and around the UK?

As from what I have read here, sure maybe misunderstood something, is that non UK citizens bringing own property into UK (in this case dolls, ad also their car) would have to pay an import duty.

Surely not...otherwise every non UK citizen entering the UK would be stark naked, no accessories or jewelry?

How would a dolly be considered differently to other owned possessions?

Shamus please rest assured that I have had experience importing things, not just dolls, from both America and from China. I can assure you that many people in the UK benefit from arrangements that Chinese manufacturers have within Europe which they do not have within the UK. As a result when those arrangements cease to operate life is going to be rather more financially painful than many anticipate. Many people, indeed apparently such as yourself, are wholly unaware.

Best wishes

Your call



lol, although true the above is said tongue in cheek. Just wanted to emphasise that as I fully appreciate that it can be read agressively if not read imagining a smile on my face as I wrote it.

I know that I'm not perfect and I don't see all scenario's before they unfold.

I saw the end of the 2k tech bubble long before anyone else. I spot the takeover targets long before they realise that they are in anyone else's sights. But I didn't see the full magnitude of sub prime and I will never see how RBS consumed NatWest (Basically a Goldfish ate a whale) so I'm far from perfect and you could be right.

I don't think you are but interested to see how this plays out.

Sure that a year from now we will revisit this thread and one of us will be telling the other. Told you so. (although I'm unlikely to do that as I'm not one for gloating).

For now though. I'm thinking that my glass is half full where you I believe are looking at the same glass and seeing it half empty.

Lets agree to disagree rather than arguing about it and we'll continue this same time next year

What I can state, unequivocally, is this.

We simply don’t know what is going to happen, so all of the above is nothing more than educated speculation.

This thread is timely.

I believe we are sleepwalking into something nasty, ruled by Big Brother, a surveillance state and cutting ourselves off from our lifeboats in the EU.

A friend who trades in Europe who has a UK bank account has just written to me:
Quote:
The bank asked me to disclose very detailed information about in- and outgoing payments, including confidential data like invoices with names and products customers have purchased (over here, tax authorities might
request this kind of information, but definitely not a bank).

-------- Forwarded Message --------

[…] 1) Can you please clarify what is the purpose of payments from the
below shortlist of payers? What is the nature of your business relations
to the following individuals:

[long list of customer names which bought products from me]

2) Can you please clarify what is the purpose of payments to the
following counterparties/individuals?

[long list of suppliers where I purchase]

-- snip --

Maybe I am paranoid, but it seems to be a similar pattern as for the
actions of UK Border Force (no law, but application of vague regulations
which are hard to challenge in court). Similarily, in case of my bank,
no law is quoted, they just claim that they are "[…] as a regulated body
[…] required to understand our Clients activity".

By continental standards, lifting the banking secrect, customer's
privacy (e.g. GDPR) and internal business information is highly unusual.
But what UK Border Force is doing is also very different from what is
normal on the continent. The way I perceived the 'old' UK was a liberal
country which put the proverbial veil over business activities and did
not sniffle around in their citizen's sexuality or spleens.

But maybe I have an idealized image of the UK. Has it always been this
way in the UK - e.g. semi-authorities violating privacy -, or could this
be indicators for recent changes in the way authorities act towards
individuals and now even small businesses?
Floating off as an independent island will leave us vulnerable to the sharks.

You’ve described what is undoubtedly caused by a directive which is EU based.

https://ec.europa.eu/info/policies/j...t-financing_en

So I feel that these particular fears may be somewhat misplaced.

@haremlover i would contact your friend and tell him to have his EU bank contact the UK bank and demand a reason for needing the information.

It’s because of an EU directive.
As I’ve pointed out.
Which is... ironic. In the context of the post?
