... the UK post office / Royal Mail cannot post and pay all VAT Tariff and admin charges in advance and so is not allowed for Amazon sellers or any good for anyone really
... the UK government has no promise of a threshold value for charging VAT tariffs and admin; it's not like selling to the US or Australia where small parcels are ignored by customs. A trade worth a penny can be taxed.

Any comments suggestions or discoveries are welcome! I'll add links to our little government's webinar and suggested contacts when available.
