Buy from Europe and save?

Possibly dumb question:

If you live in UK and see something in an online PC shop for sale in Europe that is cheaper than in England, can you buy it and pay the postage costs, but avoid paying British VAT when it comes into this country?

I’ve had some success with electronics on US ebay in this regard.

What sort of things if any are noticeably cheaper on the continent?

Your experiences / tips?

Well, everything…! Have you ever heard of the term “tresure island”? And it’s not so much “tresure” for the buyers, I can assure you that:bigsmile:
