    As the title suggests - any body from the UK received a VAT bill yet for their shiny N1?

    I received mine exactly a week ago and haven't received mine yet (not that I'm complaining). Interested to find out how much it comes too.

    Thanks for pulling this out of the other thread and into the open Martin. I await my bill as said before.

    From what ive read on a few message boards, its looking like the people who have had their box opened by customs will get a charge. Those who have not like myself ;) have got away with it.
    Dont take this as gospel but i believe its true.

    Hmmm, I'd be surprised if that was the case. Can you link to these other forums please?
    It'd be great if it was true!

    how would we know if our box had been opened by customs? would it stink of red tape?

    It is possible - doubt it though as DHL send customs advice in advance electronically (i believe). Wait till the end of month catch up on invoicing :(

    I've read a few similar threads on other forums and nobody seems to have received a VAT bill (as yet). Maybe, as the N1 was only released at the beginning of this month, and that month end (for accounting/invoicing purposes) won't happen until the end of this month, we won't actually see anything until at least early Feb 10.

    I've heard of a couple of stories of bills arriving. I order mine on day #2 and no bill yet. My fingers are crossed.

    Surely it's quite easy to work out how much it will be
    Code (Text):
    1. (Cost of phone * 1.175)+1.25
    Pretty sure that covers it anyway :)

    Important question, was the VAT invoice sent via Royal Mail, or by DHL? I only ask because DHL don't deliver to my house, they can't find it. That's ok as I can go to the depot to pick up the phone, but I don't want the VAT bill to go missing because DHL get lost on the way to my house!

    You say that, but my last DHL VAT bill took a month to arrive.
