Couple nice silver bits have arrived through the door here. A 2017 2oz Canada 150 Iconic Maple silver proof coin and a 1997 silver 1oz maple. Happy to have finally added the 97 maple to the collection at a price I was happy to pay.
They’ll be OK trusting it to a UK courier.
Many moons ago I was waiting for a ¾ ton copper casting to be delivered. The courier company was insistent they had delivered it. I couldn’t find in the goods in section of our stores. The courier had delivered it to a company half a mile down the road.
Unfortunately I had to retire from the walk at 75k😫
Everything just got the better of me at about 68k and had to hobble to 75.
Had a great experience and will definitely be doing another next year.
Due to how the challenge was set out I still qualified for a finisher's 🏅
Really chuffed with how far I got.
Thank you all for everything. Really great community. One I'm proud to be a part of. Time for a pint 🍺.
Some who send a package will declare the contents as silver and put the value on - this is a request to pay the VAT tribute to the pirates.
Some will send the package declaring it as something else and it might fly under the radar.
According to HMRC they view you as a slave and as such require you to pay a portion of your property to them.
Now you may say i am a collector of silver coins and medallions - these pieces are silver coins and medallions and are of numismatic interest to me a collector and as such i declare them as commodity code 9705 00 00 00 and 'liable' to 5% VAT and not 20%.
Caveat emptor is Latin for "let the buyer beware." It means the buyer bears the risk of purchasing goods unless there is an exception.
The doctrine of caveat emptor—that the buyer is responsible for checking the quality of goods before purchase—typically comes into play when one individual buys property or an item from another individual. For example, if someone buys a mug at a garage sale and then discovers that the mug has a leak, the buyer could very well have no recourse or legal right to demand a refund because they should have inspected the mug carefully before buying it. Another example might involve someone who buys a car from another person. The buyer test-drives the vehicle and has it inspected before buying. Several days later, the car's engine dies. Since the buyer test-drove the vehicle and had it inspected, and assuming that that seller did not commit fraud or have reason to believe that the engine was about to die, the buyer might not have any recourse.
There are several exceptions to the doctrine. The most common exceptions include fitness of the product for the buyer's purpose, goods sold by description, goods of merchantable quality, sale by sample, usage of trade, and fraud or misrepresentation. The doctrine of caveat emptor does not normally apply if the seller intentionally hid defects or made fraudulent misrepresentations. In addition, if someone buys goods that match the seller's description of those goods, then the doctrine does not apply. When a buyer tells a seller why the goods are needed and relies on the seller's skill or judgment, then, again, caveat emptor is not applicable.
In order to better protect buyers, the doctrine of caveat emptor is still in use, but it has been somewhat weakened and diluted. After World War II the residential real estate market experienced exponential growth. In an attempt to protect these new buyers, advocates argued in favor of implied warranties which weakened the doctrine. As a result most jurisdictions do not apply the doctrine to the sale of real property in recognition that buyers and sellers are in different bargaining positions. Many sales fall under the doctrine of caveat venditor, meaning "let the seller beware," because many goods are covered under an implied warranty of merchantability. In other words, courts are likely to rule that a product should actually be what its seller claims it is.
