I've not looked at the legislation, but the last figure I saw quoted was 3200. For cost of postage look at:

Doesn't look like many. Excise duty has to be paid.

Which is a problem which will affect the UK post brexit.

I presume that anything bought online in the UK will have to go through customs in Spain before delivery?

So will we have to pay VAT and IVA on amazon.co.uk items?

As they will be exports to a non-EU country, we should be able to buy VAT free from the UK. Then we'll have a nice long wait for customs at Madrid to tell us how much we owe them.

What I'm waiting for is how Brexit is going to affect the price of Islay malt in Edinburgh airport.

I meant buying from UK Amazon, from and delivering to Spain.

As the UK will not be in the EU customs union, any items sent to Spain will have to pass through Spanish aduana, if not Heathrow customs as well.

 Lagavulin ie: Lag a' Mhuilinn, "hollow of the mill" Scotish Gaelic Beurla Albannach, means......Get in your queue.

 Nowadays, it has become common in Scoto-English/Lallans ('Scots'), and is used to refer to English people. Although not explicitly derogatory, some people (notably the English) consider it to be so.

It's a good point, Ray, and I'd like to know the answer as much as yourself. But we're back to the same old hurry up and wait situation re the final Brexit outcome.

Incidentally, we returned our postal votes on Thursday.
