UK Customs & Excise Duties
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Regarding Paul Camps remarks about lying and/or cheating
the 'system', all of the QRS Music Rolls sent to the UK (or anywhere
in the world) have 'QRS Music Rolls, Inc.' stamped in big red letters
on the parcel.  It doesn't get more honest or obvious than that.

Why the officials in the UK do not asses duties or taxes on small
orders is quite unclear.  Even the folks who live in the UK cannot
explain their reasoning, and it seems to me that (with regards to
overseas orders) they rarely understand the laws which govern them.

It is my sincere hope that we will all live long enough to realize
the benefits of free-trade on a worldwide basis.  The idea of some
government agency taking money from one of its citizens simply because
they bought something from outside of their own country is ludicrous
and wrong.  Let free enterprise and free trade reign!
