I have been saving for years to buy my dream watch and I can now afford one. There is a shop at Gatwick Airport I can order the watch from and I get 16.6% off the retail/high-street price. I have been in contact with the shop and the assistant assures me I will not be required to pay TAX/Duty on this watch as long as I am not traveling out side of the EU.
I am planning to buy the watch and collect it when flying internally within the UK. Is what the assistant telling me correct; that is, I don't have to declare or pay TAX/Duty when not traveling outside the EU?
