I’ve just had to pay £2.48 in VAT charges for a model bus I ordered from Australia. No problem, it’s outside the EU and I’m happy to pay any taxes due.
To my amazement, though, on top of this sum I’ve had to pay a whopping £8.00 extra to the Royal Mail for the privilege of handling this matter for me.
How can Royal Mail be in financial difficulties if they do this? I feel like I’m personally paying to bail them out!
