As some of you may know the United Kingdom (UK) is leaving the European
Community (EC) on 31st December 2020. As no trade deal between the UK
government and the EU has been signed, it is likely that anyone living
in the EU buying from the UK will be liable to V.A.T. (Value Added
Tax), import duty and a clearance fee for the postal authorities
collecting the duty on behalf of the tax authorities. This will also
work in the reverse direction.
Could I suggest that anyone considering buying any mechanical musical
instrument, rolls, books, discs or anything else does so before this
cut-off date in order to avoid, in the short-term, these extra costs.
It would also be advisable to order early as the delivery services and
air-flights between some countries are running at a much lower capacity
than is usually the case.
I continue to reduce prices of books, discs, rolls, etc., each month
in the hope that stock will keep moving. I am now starting to sell
spare parts, tools, cutters for piano roll boxes (as I will not be
having another 2,000 made before I retire), disc storage bags, etc.
The UK is currently in lock-down again but post and parcels are
continuing as normal for now.
