Msl Changed To Fed Ex to Uk

Heads up EVERYONE I discovered to my horror that MSL have changed couriers to Fed Ex. They are charging Duty , Vat, and fee of min 2% before delivery.
There is No Duty on Model Trains from Europe according to HMRC Documents codes. The bill I am being asked to be paid is £ 33. 50 on top of VAT of £177.00 plus Fee of £12:50 . Before Delivery. Now hear is the sting, I have dealt with this company before and they will charge but not provide the paperwork to get the refund from HMRC. Great Cash flow. Not Unlike Royal mail who do provide a sticky label with all the costs and details on.
I have informed MSL if they continue using FED EX I will not purchase anymore.

The duty issue depends where those items actually originate..... they may be made in countries where duty is applicable, and unless they contain "significant EU content" (which I suggest is unlikely for most model train items), then its the duty appropriate to where manufactured (China, Malaysia, Korea, Japan, etc.) which is appropriate.
