burberry trench, vat

    Can anybody help me please...... I am purchasing a burberry trench from the UK (its not available here) They can either post it to me directly at my home address or send it to their store in Dublin. As I live in Galway it would obviously suit me better having it sent to my home address the only thing I am worried about is if I will have to pay VAT? I know when I purchase items from the USA I often get hit for customs and VAT which can add up to a lot. I'm not sure if its the same from the UK? I obviously dont want to pay anymore than I already have so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You don't pay extra VAT/duty on any items sent within the EU.

    You won't have to pay any tax or duty as the goods originate from inside the EU.

    Thats super, thanks so much. They just said they could send it to their store in Dublin? I'm assuming they ment Brown Thomas?
