    Default Fragrancenet.com - VAT Tax for UK shipping !! Disaster

    Has anybody else noticed fragrancenet.com are now charging VAT Tax on UK shipping? What a pointless exercise.

    Any alternatives?

    Same here. Some of their offerings were great even if you had to pay $15-$20 shipping cost to get it overseas but now I wont buy anything from them anymore because it makes no sense to pay almost as much for shipping + taxes as for fragrance itself.

    You're kidding?! That's bad news......

    The Bond order I've been planning on placing with them for months now was obviously ill-fated - firstly, all Bond's were removed from their site for a short while, then they returned, but I never got around to ordering. Now this......

    Not good.

    Oh great, here we go. Another reputable bargain place goes down the pan. Has this actually been applied to UK BN's recent orders?

    I wanted to place an order yesterday but was surprised to see this being added on top of their inflated shipping charges.

    They have always posted UK orders from within the UK but still charge you an international shipping price.

    I've ordered recently from both Fragrancex and Beauty Encounter and have been stung by customs for VAT upon arrival. Didnt know Fragrancenet had started adding it before dispatch though.

    I dare say DHL and the like have pressured them in to doing so. At the moment I get an invoice from DHL for the customs charge that they've paid in advance. I cant see them being happy to do this.

    I would imagine it the other way, DHL of course add their %age on top of the custom charges so I can't see why would they have any problem with this.

    Well, I had a bottle of Neroli Sauvage shipped over from Fragrancenet by DHL in August and was presented with a customs bill on delivery. I've not paid it yet and dare say I'm not the only which would go some way to explain why DHL might want payment upfront now.
