Cheers for the heads up on this, looking to have a belt change done on the car soon.

Assuming there's VAT to pay on imports from the EU now.
Vat is included in the price at whatever the Polish rate is, 19% ?

There is no import duty or Vat to pay on entry to the UK.

Agh! Out of curiosity, what did they charge you on top of the purchase price?
I think it was about 70 by ups. To be fair to the seller I did email him saying I’ll just return it as it wasn’t worth it and he refunded me £70 difference but can’t see him doin that on everyone

How did you pay?

I think it comes down to the point of sale.

I always pay by Paypal, transferring funds from my credit card, and it appears on my statement as

RECURRENT PURCHASE 123456 EBAY UK

I have not purchased from Poland since 2020, but both purchases from Latvia this year have not attracted any additional Vat.

Strangely, a minor purchase of £7 from the Channel Islands did, though it was refunded when I questioned it.


I have had 2 2021 orders from Autodoc in Germany, in excess of £135 without additional VAT, but I notice they Invoice using a GB Vat number.

Budget rear calipers have been in short supply of late, but Autodoc now have stock of both sides, branded as KAMOKA.

Polish company / Chinese manufactured I believe.

Hopefully the rubber components are superior to the Ridex items I have bought previously, but then these are all priced at less than

certain brands of brake pad, so can be regarded as disposables !
