    Hi Guys

    I'm looking at a pair of carbon wheels from the UK - value approx. 300 pounds.

    Any way of finding out how much customs would be roughly?

    What's the shipping? They have a HS code of 8714.99.1000 which is zero rated for duty going by European Customs portal. You'll be paying 23% Vat on top of it though and on top of delivery and any processing charges. Could be looking at another 100-150

    the seller reckons they can ship for £30

    So you can add VAT onto that too then. You're looking at 470 or so in Euro plus whatever fee courier might add on, and that;s if they are indeed zero rated
