Duties/taxes on USED goods (US to UK)?

Any UK Gearslutz that have bought from eBay (USA) before?

Greetings to all.

Thanks to Impact Studios for the PM regarding my query ... still uncertain though if there are any permits / licences required to bring USED equipment from the US into the UK.

I found a posting here from a UK "G-Slut" that stated 3.7% duties on the cost of item including shipping, plus the 17.5% VAT.

Is this for both new and used items and is there anything else I should know about buying "used" gear from the US and having it sent to the UK?

Thanks for any help.
