My brother and I have been sent Christmas presents from our sister in America and despite following protocols as instructed and paying lots of postage to avoid charges, we now have to pay a ransom of £41.34 of estimated "import VAT" to Parcelforce/HMRC to receive our presents. Paying VAT on a present is so unjust!
We are but humble Australians doing our best to live in the UK. I was just laid off so sadly can't afford this extra expense and sadly neither can my family as they are all struggling to make ends meet.
Please give the gift of giving this Christmas and help us afford to buy our Christmas presents. Thank you for your generosity and Merry Christmas!
