Another imports question - Japan to UK
If I was to import an RG8570Z, from what I understand through other threads:
- there are import charges equating to roughly 25% of the value of the item+shipping+insurance, with the 8% sales tax excluded from Japan
- some shops are able to export new items, but others aren't. But the above charges apply
- exchange rates - shops able to accept credit cards such as AMEX, but the rates are governed by my bank. In which case if purchasing on a card which has no exchange fees then that would be the most cost effective option.
- import fees seem to be hit and miss, with some delivery companies charging whilst others not charging.
Is there anything else I near to bear in mind before making the transaction?
