hi northernland

to tell you the truth it is better to buy a t.v in cyprus because if you do bring a t.v from the u.k you run the risk if getting stoped at customs you getting charged tax on this item (bandroll tax) even thou most electrical stuff are a bit more expensive in cyprus you can get some good deals in lefkosa, if you are going to bring anything electrical bring small things like toasters,kettles etc better idea cos these items in cyprus are quite a lot more expensive

regards

ukturk

We bought from toros in lefkosa , really quite reasonable we thought, as ukturk implies ,its just as broad as long , and this taking all into account its just as cost effective to buy in nc

You shouldnt get charged any more tax if you fly into Larnaca because in EU and you would have paid tax on the TV in the UK anyway.



We bought over a microwave, kettle, toaster and iron which saved us a fortune and we didnt get stopped at all in Larnaca.



TV's and in fact most electrical goods are more expensive in TRNC. Some people do bring TV's over.

What does "Bandroll tax mean"?



Also, you now realise that if you leave this forum, even for a day, the POOOOOOlice will be after you - no rest for the wicket!!!

What makes it second hand, if I bought one 6 months before having it shipped out to TRNC would that constitute as second hand
