Bet they aint marked it down, they dont care once you have paid. Its too much of a risk for them on the most risky sale able item going. Also there is no way they wouldnt write 'watch' on it i dont reckon, and the cunts at customs would open a box for a watch cos they know its worth it to check it, cos they can prove the value, unlike a jumper or a shirt etc. Big charges coming i reckon mate. Thats why people very rarely get expensive stuff from abroad cos the charges add up to more than buying here. Sad

It's outside the EU so yes if it's over £135 in value (VAT is charged from £15 upwards). Depending on her value putting her on a plane might be cheaper. Does Sarah know?

What do Fukers ask Stylistics/Jake to mark down to ensure there's no fees from Japan? Am I gonna be safe with "clothing" and 4,000 JPY?

Mark as gift and low custom value, had no issues really. I suggest telling the proxy to remove price tags as wellEye-wink

I marked bag as 3500 yen and got charged £20 for it.

I think I've gone low , like 1500 yen and cleared it.

And yeah, make sure to mark as gift

Is Customs Clearance UK a real thing (CCLPAY.COM)?

Got an email to pay tax and customs entry fee for some trainers before they can release it from customs.

I import loads of stuff from US and ive never had this before, usually have to go and pay at the delivery depot.

Just seems strange its directly from customs and not DHL.

Also, will they send me a bill in the post as well?

Buying books from the US, shipping to the UK - are the Customs fee thresh-holds the same as for clothing?

Books won't get charged by customs.

Does anyone have an approximate figure for the customs fee on shipping a jacket from Japan priced around £600. Fully aware it won't be a nice number

Read on here and sup/fut about something called a proxy where a guy in JP orders or purchases the item for you and sends it to you wherever you are with no custom charge,that looks decent.Maybe that could be worth looking into though I never did it myself.
