I've bought a book!! (--but haven't received it yet.) Ain't you been listening?

The UK's tax is managed by HMRC. Books are exempt from any import duty or VAT under their guidelines. I read the guidance fairly recently, after contesting a case; it involved VAT being levied on slipcases DM had posted over. Books are definitely exempt. It's possible something has changed very recently, but I don't think so; I think I'd have read (or someone else would have read) about it in some book-related newsletters, etc.

You may be right though; perhaps there's more to it than first appears...
