I know you're not in UK Diederik - but here it's a complete bitch to claim back Customs and VAT on items you've returned.

I fought with HMRC over a customs and VAT bill of over a grand for returned items for months before they finally paid me back. I had to get a lawyer involved and everything.

Yeah I live in Luxembourg and I guess it's even worse than in the UK for that. At least the VAT is only 15% here Ubercool

Is it safe to assume that the items that drop to 70-80% in the US will drop to the same in the UK if they're still in stock?

15% ? Jawdropping!

In Italy it's 21%, possibly rising of two more points in autumn!

I had an order cancelled this morning cos the item was out of stock. Is it worth emailing complaining to see if I'll get a voucher like they did with orders that were slow to be sent out at Christmas or do they not do that anymore?

Worth a try I'd say. I got £50 at Christmas simply because it took them a week to post an order.
