I received this from London Ancient Coins and I would have thought the EU would have a single VAT to charge the UK dealers. Seems quite cruel perhaps the varied nature of these:

Dear Customer,

--->The UK left the single market on 1 January 2021...
Please check below your country's VAT tariffs
for antiquities and coins When you receive the parcel check that the
correct rate has been applied, if not ask to
the courier agent to apply the correct tariff.<---

1 - Austria 13%
2 - Belgium 6%
3 - Bulgaria 20%
4 - Czech Republic 15%
5 - Denmark 25% **
6 - Cyprus 5%
7 - Croazia 25%
8 - Estonia 20%
9 - Finland 10%
10 - France 5.5 %
11 - Germany 7%
12 - Greece 24%
13 - Hungary 27%
14 - Ireland 13.5 %
15 - Italy 10%
16 - Latvia 21%
17 - Lithuania 21%
18 - Luxembourg 8%
19 - Malta 5%
20 - Netherlands 9%
21 - Poland 8%
22 - Portugal 6%
23 - Romania 19%
24 - Slovakia 20 %
25 - Slovenia 9.5 %
26 - Spain 5.5 %
27 - Sweden 12%

**(In respect of Article 103, Denmark reduces the taxable amount to 20% to which the 25% rate is applied, resulting in an effective rate of 5% for imports of both works of art and antiques. Similarly, the taxable amount in respect of supplies by creators is reduced by 20% to which the 25% rate applies, resulting in an effective rate of 5%.)

In Belgium there is not only the VAT but also the customs charges. I had to pay 32 + VAT and to wait three weeks for two coins from the UK. albert

Not cruel at all . Each country has the right to levy its own tariffs .
No different than any US State , County , or city levying its own rate .
In fact the US has the most messed up sales tax system in the world
Bar none !

Thanks for list....I live in Spain....Ok does this mean if I buy a coin from the UK the added tax will be 5.5% on receipt?...Or is this added to the purchase via the seller?....Or are we talking purely ebay?..I'm confused!.....I've recently bought coins from vcoins sellers based in the UK and have paid exactly the same price as listed obviously plus postage...

@nor, you clearly have some strong feelings about this and that is your prerogative. However, please remember that this is a family-friendly site and bypassing the bad word filter is completely unacceptable. This will be your only warning.

@Spence - I don't see why you couldn't have redacted those 4 characters (which by the way, relate to a court-proven fact, as it was mentioned in sworn deposition relating to David Cameron's proximity to a pig's severed head), and not have left the rest of the chain of reasoning. I apologize for the use of a swear, I forgot myself, as this is a clear cut case. I will reiterate, as this was removed, that I am a half British, half Polish Canadian, living in Poland.

My Original message mentioned that politicians in the UK CHOSE to raise the issue, and that the populace CHOSE to leave the EU, while lawmakers (particularly Boris Johnson) CHOSE to make a bad deal to meet deadlines.

The UK made a bad deal, simple as, and they have to live with it.

Rather than the EU being hard on the UK, it is wholely the work of the UK - shooting itself quite accurately in the foot.

The EU (and about 48% of the UK electorate) would rather not being playing around with random VAT. It's incredibly inefficient, to the gain of no one but the red tape specialists.

...barely, only after being very actively lied to for months (many of those lies having, IIRC, later been uncovered as deliberate), and for the most part only in England (but that turned out to be just barely enough).

My impression had always been that Boris Johnson (and/or some other major Tories) had been pushing for a no-deal Brexit but didn't want to be seen actually proposing that... though admittedly I'm not sure whether that's consistent with them ultimately chickening out when a no-deal Brexit was days away.

Unfortunately, in a democracy, if a majority of the idiots pick a foolish option, whether they were told the absolute truth or a pack of lies both the fools and the losing side get dragged along to the slaughter.

There never was a plan, there were no serious negotiations, and a completely predictable and expected result.

During the final panic days, the EU "gave in" on a few meaningless gifts and that was presented to the MPs as a glorious win for Britain. Without time to see what was in the package, most groups didn't know whether they were luck or not.

This is starting to slide into a political discussion that will go
absolutely no where !
Only thing I will add ..... sure is funny the GBP ..... skyrocketing
upward . Amazing what can happen when one can start to control
your own destiny , instead of being controlled by a bureaucratic
nightmare in Brussels .
The import duty tax rates from the OP are not UK imposed rates they are
the individual IMPORT TAXATION IMPOSED BY the mentioned countries .
The Same rate would be Imposed if a buyer IMPORTED from Canada USA Australia or anywhere else on the planet . This is not a UK export tax .
The higher a countries TAX rate is usually indicative of the SIZE
of Government they enjoy.
