Since July 1st it is the same for all countries in EU. If you buy from another country you have to pay your country's VAT on the purchase amount. If it isn't paid at purchase you may also be charged extra by customs as well as the VAT. It can be circumvented by the seller filling in the CN22 as a gift and as long as the value is put as less than 45 Euros then it should go through without any problems. But make sure to put a value as I had one returned by german customs because I put a line through value (meaning no value) but they couldn't get their minds around that.

I think value should be under 21 € for the CN22.

I think it's £18 for the UK, but best to keep it to a few ££ each item, or make it as PROMOTIONAL ITEM NOT FOR RESALE = Value 0, or 'NCV' which means NO COMMERCIAL VALUE
