Thanks for the reply Grimsdyke.
I did say the ideas might be crazy and impractical at present.
Seems to me that there will be a different, and possibly better, world on the other side of the current situation.
Who knows?
Stay safe and healthy folks!
Ideas are real riches!
Regards
CC

One option could be for the labels or someone to set up an ebay store.
Ebay will collect and pay the VAT to the UK government meaning the label wouldn't have to register.

Yes, ebay have their charges which would no doubt need to be reflected in the price but it could be an option for the labels or a reseller.

Chris from Soundtrackcorner.de in Berlin already operates an ebay store. I don't know how Ebay handles the UK VAT, but I guess that the UK VAT is added to the the gross price (net price + German VAT).

More likely is that the German VAT is 'removed' before the international sale, then the VAT for the country of destination is added. I don't think a double tax is normal.

You're right. EU sellers have to specify the VAT rate in new listings.

Sigh. Can't we just re-join EU?

I think Scotland will be first in the queue for that. England is years away as long as it's run by the old Etonian Colonialists lol


This 'sovereignty fetishist' government has less time in office than they think given the worsening position of our economy. Brexit was never deliverable because it's foundations were built on lies. I would be very surprised if they were still in office at the end of the summer break 21. My advice is to all UK buyers is to wait out the storm until then, or acquire some friends abroad ... wink, wink!

Restrictions on political posts means I can't reply directly ...
... but I will say: seeing your Avatar makes this mathematician (by birth) / accountant (by necessity) want to cry. How any business owner can list a price £xx.yyP begs the question .. does he/she understand numbers?

I agree that we're in a right old mess, but the next general election isn't 'till 2024, do you know something I don't? And apparently our economy is no worse that mainland Europe, they just work the figures out differently, we're all about even (up shit creek in a barbed wire canoe). And I think Scotland has no chance of joining the EU.

All this does make me think twice, three times, about importing. If it really is a "must have" then I'll bite the bullet & pay, but there's not many "must have's" left for me. It's a shame that imported Blu-ray movies are more expensive, I used to pay £15 for a Warner Archive release, it's going to be around £22 (or more) now.

Cooperative? UK music buyers are downright obstreperous.

They are reflective of a deeply divided country (similar to USA).

That sounds like it's something worth being.
