I was wondering if somebody could answer a question for me please, on Saturday i purchased a pair of Lanvin pumps from Barney's. The transaction was done over the telephone as i live in the U.K. I am however having the shoes sent to my relatives address in Seattle (she is coming over to the U.K. in 2 weeks time) the shoes were $510 when they first thought they were being sent to the U.K. plus $50 delivery. I thought it would be easier and cheaper to have them sent to my relations but then they charged me an extra $44.88 in tax , so the shoes were $554.88 plus $12 delivery, i do not understand this. I have just purchased some t-shirts online and had them sent to my relations in Seattle they have not charged me any extra tax, was Barney's right to do this?
