Based on $999 ex works plus (say) $110 shipping and insurance, this is what I got from a website:

Total customs value (CIF): 662.90 This is the amount that customs values your import at.

- Duty: 31.16

- VAT: 138.81

Total import duty & taxes due: 169.97 This is the amount that needs to be paid to customs.

Total landed cost: 832.86 This is the total cost of importing, including product, shipping, insurance and import duty & taxes at exchange rate of 1 GBP = 1.67 USD

And there may be a charge on top if Royal Mail or the courier pay the customs clearing costs and charge you a fee. RM is 8 I think.
