I want to buy a card game (about 1000 cards or more) in one box from Holland. It is not a normal deck of cards, it is a game a bit like Magic, but not Magic. It is not boosters, or anything like that. It is one self contained game in one box.

I live in the UK. The game is in a shop in Holland.

Would there be any import duty on me as an individual purchasing this game. It costs about £67 including postage.

Probably not:

Customs Duty

You’ll be charged Customs Duty on all goods sent from outside the UK (or the UK and the EU if you’re in Northern Ireland) if they’re either:

  • excise goods
  • worth more than £135

If you’re charged Customs Duty, you’ll need to pay it on both:

  • the price paid for the goods
  • postage, packaging and insurance

    But note that the supplier is required to register for and collect UK VAT, even though they’re not UK-based. Very many European suppliers can’t be bothered and so simply won’t ship to the UK.
