I am moving to London indefinitely for a new job. On my arrival (by flight) I will be carrying my iphone, ipad, laptop, possibly a few everyday electronics. According to this gov.uk website I need to declare and pay VAT on anything that costs more than 390 GBP.
I want to ask if this makes any remote sense and if people have similar experience. I cannot possibly afford to move to the UK if I pay VAT on my own belongings, that I already paid vat beforehand, of worth more than 4-5K in total while on the other hand I cannot possibly arrive there without my phone, work laptop, ipad, headphones, etc.
