    I remember someone in the UK telling me a few weeks ago, that books were exempt of import tax.
    But I could be wrong, so someone else should chip in

    Perfect timing : I was sorting out some posts I saved on social media, and someone posted that same question on Facebook.

    Here is the link, it's in the Suntup group : https://www.facebook.com/groups/4270...3264277025659/

    Hi All - hoping that someone from the UK can give me some info on whether they are being charged VAT on the books when they arrive please? Ive been charged 20% of the value of the product on a couple of things in the last 2 weeks and since I have Lettered books coming, I am hugely concerned.


    And among the 14 replies it got, I quickly went through them, and about 10 or so people said that there isn't VAT on books in the UK.
    The other replies were mostly about how people were accidentally charged for it an complained about it, and got it fixed. Something like this

    I will if no one better volunteers.

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to help me purchase a book in the UK.

    I am US based and the bookstore won't ship to me.

    Please reach out to me at Sirfolio16@hotmail.com if you are willing to help me out.

    Thank you.

    Does Waterstone's do a decent job packing orders sent to the US?

    They used a cardboard sleeve when I ordered from them. Book was trashed. Took two more tries to get a good copy.

    Thanks, sounds like I won't be ordering direct.
    If anyone near a Waterstones can help me out, please let me know.

    I have had generally good luck with Waterstone's but more despite their packing than because of it. The cardboard sleeve does little to protect the book, but usually it does enough.

    Am guessing that it's related to GDPR, but today, Abebooks now tells me that that orders of 150 euros or more, from outside the EU, cannot be sent to France.
    What a load of BS !!

    I am interested in something from the UK, via ebay. But the product page says that the seller cannot send to France.
    Waiting for a reply from the seller, but if someone may be able to help, it would be appreciated, thanks
