Say what now??I’ve always been a ‘glass half empty’ kind of guy.
I knew it was too early to start sucking each other’s dicks ref Jan 1st
its CKD (Completely Knocked Down) I think they closed that loophole years ago. This was how japanese cars were viable in europe.I’m no legal expert by any means but what about stern opening a UK or European arm to their business. Yes I’m sure they’d potentially still get hit with the charge but that would be at their cost price so pull down the overall price. Assemble a small amount of parts over here and then class as made in the UK again don’t shoot me down if there are holes wider than the Grand Canyon in the thought
Interesting article and it seems unsurprisingly this latest tarrif is being used as another pawn in a greater trade deal battle with the US. Important note that Airbus concerns don’t disappear on 1st Jan for Uk as we are part of a 4 country partnership
Quote from article :
Legal experts say the issue may test complex theories over the responsibilities of states in international law. Britain is both a departing member of the EU and, separately, one of four partner nations to Airbus alongside France, Germany and Spain.
Britain is expected to argue that it inherited the right to impose tariffs under rules of state succession, because it suffered harm from the U.S. subsidies covered by the case.”
Read that again @Neil McRae. Did you really want to say that not a single person who was opposed to the idea of Brexit can understand trade? If you did intend to say that, this speaks volumes of yourself not the people opposed to Brexit.This is what the anti Brexit folks don't get, they think trade is so simple when in fact its super complex.

Be factual or be free to voice an opinion but be careful when you think your opinion is a fact.
I have no idea if this is accurate or not but what you're saying is my J-Park might hold value a bit better than perhaps it would have?as with everything price is set by demand. The demand for new games across Europe with this tariff just died. I've no intention of buying any new games that are 25% higher.
I've been able to confirm that any game shipped prior to this tariff kicking in into the EU is exempt from the tariff. So pricing on games before 2016 probably not a significant change, but newer games released in the last few years - prices just went up. Those of you selling anyhing you bought in the last three years should hold on, as the reality of this kicks in people will want those games more, I suspect 10-15%, so games like Elvira, B66, Avengers, maybe even Star Wars and munsters became more valuable or maybe stay closer to their NIB price, some higher.

I wouldn’t stress too much. The government have spunked a fortune on their latest “get ready for Brexit” adverts over the last couple of months. Just a bit of a shame that they overlooked telling businesses exactly what to get ready for.
LOL, oh its always deliberateI know you like to put a fire under things for fun, I am trying to work out of if you always know you doing it or it just happens accidentally.
As the UK are still unsure what our trade agreement with the EU will be and as the UK do not have matching size trade agreements in the bag (singular or aggregate), I suspect 87.4%* of pro Brexit supporters have nothing other but uniformed opinion too.
*all % quoted about what pro and anti Brexit supporter think is completely made up as no one ever asked them all.
I watched the latest stern distributor webinar for the pin very boring but Gary was already on with lawyers to get on this but he did say it’s going to take some time
I know there is still a marked even at 25% more although much more limited it all evens its self out when it comes back on the market second hand
The problem is the insecurity of the market that if you do pay the 25% increase then the tariff gets scrapped you have lost a hell of a lot
We wouldn’t normally see the next stern till February over here anyway and from what I hear it’s no great title anyway but it’s a sad state for people waiting on Rick and morty and gnr
There is no chance of a pinball manufacturer sucking up the 25% tariff I doubt these is 25% profit in them anyway
I would love to think this is true Neilthat isn't true, government have been clear; we have a bunch of new systems and system changes al ready for 1st of Jan. Some things not quite there yet but nothing that will cause any big issues.
I suspect the premium and le reap major profits over the pro and yes Neil I suspect the eu market is about a third or maybe even moreI agree Chris I doubt they will suck up 25%, but maybe 10-15 - I can see that. Rumour cost of an LE to Stern is 3500-4000USD - but what isn't well understood is how Stern is leveraged.
