I can't work out how they calculated the tax, 17.5% of £20 is £3.50 and not £8.53, and the handling fee of £13.50 is over the top IMO. I'll make sure I mark my packages £15 from now on.
Yes you're right, that looks like what they've done. Thanks for pointing it out.JimboPSM wrote:My (very educated) guess is that they actually made an incredibly stupid mistake by using the exchange rate itself as the GBP value of the goods instead of taking the THB value of the goods and dividing by the exchange rate to arrive at the calculated GBP value of the goods.

The sticker on the box says anything over £18 imported into the UK is subject to VAT at 17.5%
