Not sure what the VAT rate in the UK is, but yes if the Neo gets shipped from outside the EU, then you'll have to pay import VAT. And I would expect no import duties as such, as mobiles, IT stuff have a rate of 0% in Germany, thus in all EU countries.

I've just been on the HMRC website (
and have found the following information:

ITEM          |Excise Duty|Standard Duty|VAT Rate|

Mobile phones | Free      | Free        | Standard Rate |

Does this mean that for a neo1973 Base ~184GBP on delivery I'll have to pay another 32.20GBP?
