So I got sent a gift from a friend in China to the United Kingdom Yes it was a gift it had a value of $30 and I am being asked to pay £15.68 two weeks later £4.93 for taxes and £10.75 for an administrative fee. I wouldn't mind having to pay the £4.93 for taxes if I owe it but £10.75 for an admin fee. at no point in the transaction and subsequent delivery was any contract for a clearance administration fee charge between Fedex and my self The gift was delivered and nothing else happened until two weeks later when I received the letter asking me to pay the £15.68. I have looked on HMRC website about this and they state "may have to pay Customs Duty on goods with a value that exceeds £135" also once I sign for it doesn't the item become my property and no longer theirs so there for they cannot charge and further charges? Please can someone tell me whats best to do thanks.
