The interesting thing about hobbyking is that I've asked them if I can buy from DE warehouse without VAT (I'm VAT registered) and they've told me that there's no VAT on their products and I still can be charged by the customs Shocked Not sure if that's a mistake/miscommunication or what ?
I pay to HC, gods are send from DE - so are the taxes payed or not ?
With this turnover they have I can't believe they are not VAT reg. Laughing
Anybody's got any idea how it works ?
Never heard about anybody been charged buying from DE - but after their replay I'm suspicious that they could find a gap in the system.
No chance to compete with them if at the start they have over 20% lower price than any MS buying from China ..
Strange that...
Anywho - sending my CV - can work for'em in exchange for some lipos and 3 coffies a day in the morning What a Face
