    Be aware of the customs charges if any. It'll end up being more expensive than buying it over here once HMRC hammer you.
    Value of goods 11.98.

    So is it cheaper for the U.K. to buy American goods or is it more expensive? If I understand the exchange rate. Something that cost $100 usd would only cost about $50 British pounds depending on the exchange rate.

    That's why I said 'if any'. And don't forget they value the goods at this country's price, not the country you bought it from. All that above is a load of quoff anyway, I imported a comic that cost me 120 (papers and documents are tax exempt don't forget) and they sent me a bill for 45. I got in touch with them and they pissed about until it went past the 30 days they'd hold it for then they sent it back to the States. That was following fifteen phone calls to them.

    Take your chances with HMRC by all means, but if it was that easy nobody would buy anything from this country and would all therefore be avoiding taxes.

    It has always been a bone of contention that the same goods in the UK are far more expensive than those in the USA, especially electrical goods. Televisions, Hi-fi etc. The exchange rate is about 1.5 dollars to the pound.

    The info that I posted is from official HMRC documentation.
    Do take into account that in my case I am below a certain threshold.
    Once past that it becomes very uncompetitive, what with import duty, vat etc.

    I know it's from official documentation. From my own numerous previous experiences I can safely tell you HMRC do whatever the hell they want, regardless of what their documentation says.
