The UK left a "club" that had positive real benefits and leaving has consequences.

Absolutely, it's a real change.

I'm not being pro or anti Brexit, was just pointing out the "problem" or "issue" doesn't seem to be on this side of the border and I was wondering what the German / EU rules are now the UK has left the EU.

The problem isn't on either side of the border and no rules have actually changed. The problem is that the UK decided / voted to create a border where there wasn't one up to now (or at least place themselves on the other side of the existing border).

The problem is on both sides, it’s called a border without a customs and tax agreement. Hence every time an item has to cross the border, it’s subject to VAT and customs checks. Hence more procedures, paperwork and expense. Plus more opportunity for something to go wrong.


I myself have a lost parcel somewhere. It’s an item I bought from abroad. Last known location in U.K. customs, January…

But how?

Consider this scenario; I send you a parcel from the UK with a customs label stating "gift" and with a value of £30.  You then send me back a parcel also labelled as "gift" with a value of 35 EUR.  In both instances, the customs at the UK border will not impose any tax, duty or VAT whatsoever.

So what in Germany / EU is preventing you from doing this?

GeoffB17:
I'd suggest that as a one-off this could work.

But if it happens repeatedly/regularly, then someone will spot that Bryce is receiving/sending a LOT of 'gifts', and something is going on, and then big trouble for someone, and no more!

Yes, I HAVE benefitted from Bryce's services, and my 3" drive is still working brilliantly - thanks
