I had that argument with HMRC years ago over an item that had been repaired under warranty in the US.

You have to pay VAT, no if's or buts, when I asked who I could speak to about this to get my VAT refunded the nice man at HMRC (no he really was a nice man) pointed out that the only one who could do anything about it was the chancellor of the exchequer, who was Alistair Darling at the time, so I paid up.
