... for a few days and was wondering whether the prices of their saxes would be considerably cheaper out there. Would, particularly, like to get hold of a Bauhaus M2. Anyone know?

Thanks guys. I considered the import duty (£390 max in UK) and have a little plan which, if you don't mind, I won't divulge at this moment incase the prying eyes of Customs and Excise reach this far.

Import duty can't possibly be anything like £390. It is something like 2.5% payable on the cost over a certain threshold. Plus 20% VAT. The only way round this is smuggling, which incurs a fine, confiscation of the goods and possible jail.

Alternatively registration for VAT can save you the VAT.
Ah. That's what I meant by £390 - the threshold. It is the maximum allowable for purchases brought into the UK from non-EC countries.

Wow. Doesn't look like I am going to have much success in the few spare hours I get over there. I might have to take up playing Chinese cymbals instead.
