In Reply to: RE: They are $200K NOT £200K. Big difference... posted by musetap on August 12, 2012 at 13:07:56
The (insured) shipping, import duty, and VAT might raise if from $200K to £200K.
If the shipping and insurance was 5%, import duty was 10%, add 20% VAT and you're up to $277K, or about £177K.
I don't really know what the actual rates are, just guessing. I do know some countries charge 100%~500% import duties on items like this.
I don't know the precise numbers but generally stuff imported from the US costs the same in £ as it does in $ numerically.
Even minus that stuff the exchange rate calculator just checked sez 200,000.00 GBP = 312,600.62 USD.
So, $200,000 sounds a LOT better than the GBP price. I screwed up and got it wrong in my first post about who might be crazy.
