When you bring somethings from China, importers must pay VAT on top of the total sum of the Customs Value and the Import Duty. The Customs Value is the total cost of the products, including any development costs you’ve paid to your supplier, the cost of shipping to the UK and any import duty. So ensure you pay any VAT that is due.
All importers are required to pay UK duty + VAT unless the goods are eligible for duty-free. For instance, if you pay your supplier £4000 for your products, £600 for the shipping quote and the UK duty rating is 3.5%, then the duty fee will be 3.5% of 4000, which is £140.
