Hi, just wondering if anyone has any idea of what the tax is on phones bought in the UK and brought over to the trnc, I want to buy my granddaughter a new mobile phone for Xmas but want to know how much tax I would need to pay. If anyone is about to pay the tax on their phone and could get this information that would be great. Thanks

Buy the new phone here in N Cyprus. Very similar prices i.e. Samsung J5 around £200. All taxes paid. No hassle

I am not convinced that the phones here are all original, how can you have an iPhone which is over £1000 in the UK be advertised st nearly half the price. I know that Turkcell etc sell the original but I would prefer to get in the UK and know what I am buying. Thanks for your help though

Southern belle,
I bought my iPhone from Turkcell and only about £20 more than the UK price and no tax to pay.

No, it's only on devices using KKTCell and Telsim, not wifi.
