My parcel of Nature Throyd was intercepted by Customs (Border Force) and not delivered to my house. I had to go to the post office and pay £15.40 - £7.40 VAT and £8 'handling charge' to the Post Office. The man at the post office told me there has been a huge increase in these parcels being checked recently. I didn't think VAT was payable on medicines. The notice attached to the parcel reads 'customs charges are applied to imports into the EU with a value over £15 for VAT. All items value over £135 will attract import duty ....... ' (Notice 143). I wonder what will happen when Brexit takes hold.
