Buying from Wiggle


Rifi

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can somebody please tell me what do you pay i.e. Tax or duties if I am going to purchase from Wiggle in the UK. Is there a percentage I can work on?

15.4% + R30 for bike components

Thank you

I was told that if it is marked as gift, i wont pay. Is that true?

Depends entirely on what you buy from Wiggle: clothing attracts much higher duties foe example. The topic has been discussed extensively on The Hub. Do a search.

Yep, place a single thread of fabric in the parcel and you pay 40% duty plus 14% VAT..... So if you are buying clothing take the purchase price and double it.

99% of time you will (but still worth buying there) but I have been lucky to receive my goods without and payments. Tyres have never attracted attention but bigger parts have. also check out chain reaction cycles and bike24
