Will I have to pay import tax / duty from enertion boards to UK?

Hi guys does anyone have any idea if I will need to pay import duty if I order parts from enertion to UK? I’m sure I read on here somewhere that someone had to?

Oh and is te enertion vesc any good?

Thanks

Yes, and the rate is pretty high, 75 gbp for a 290 gbp order, a good 25%, crazy? No, UK :slight_smile:
And if for some reason parcelforce is delivering the package, add other 13 pounds. I ordered a deck from china and it costed me almost double.

Still, I am very happy with enertion stuff (rspec+ kit) and I ordered another time to get another VESC and new pulleys + spaced trucks (because I got the old kit for some reason, that should be stronger ) and probably will order again (dual motor mounts,. pulleys 13/36t and motors) at some point maybe.

Hey there, I am ordering an electric skateboard from the US to the UK. What sort of costs will I need to consider on to of the price and the shipping costs in terms of VAT and custom duty?

VAT at 20%, duty is about 3% plus a clearance fee of about £30 is average

Damn, that’s going to be expensive. Oh well, no going back now. Thanks for the answer, very helpful!
