I think it's actually 33% (21% VAT plus 12% duty). That's what I've had to pay on anything that's been caught by customs. :wv

I didn't have to pay anything. I bought 2 dresses and including shipping I paid €240. The dresses arrived to my work address over xmas and we were closed, so the postman kept them for me and gae them to me my first day back and i wasn't charged anything. Maybe it's if it's over a certain value.
