Captain Kirk made the shock announcement on his twitter account complaining that a change to UK VAT rules for overseas sellers due in January will cost his business extra so he may have to stop selling his quality merchandise in the UK , it's a serious blow for Shatner fans across the land.

UK folks; looks like your government is wanting to force vendors outside of your country to collect VAT on orders being shipped to the UK staring 1 Jan. I had my staff investigate costs & it’s over £1000/yr just to file these forms via a service. That’s too much for a small store

@WilliamShatner
to absorb or we would have to raise prices considerably. Unfortunately unless something happens to change that we will suspend accepting orders from the UK at ShatnerStore.com... starting January 1st. I’m sorry.


If Brexit means not completing my Captain Kirk and TJ Hooker collection then I'm sorry , that's a price too high to pay !


At least we still have his music.

I'm sure Capt. Kirk's merch will be a great loss, but what about everyone else? That's really the issue here. I don't really know how other countries do it, but is it common to have foreign companies collect taxes for local countries? Don't know--just asking.

But it's value added tax. Doesn't Kirk want to add value to his products?
