Simply electronics have been going for years. I've ordered from them before, there shipping is God slow and I suspect it's actually shipping out of China hence the 7 days to hit the door step but the savings can't be ignored.

But my point is there are offers you just have to search

Simply Electronics are a well known importer - chances are VAT hasn't been paid on the item either.

From their T's and C's

Payment Fees and Charges

You agree to pay all fees and charges incurred in connection with your purchases (including any applicable taxes) at the rates in effect when the charges were incurred. Unless you notify Simply Electronics of any discrepancies within sixty (60) days after they first appear on your credit card statement, you agree that they will be deemed accepted by you in all respects and for all purposes. If Simply Electronics does not receive payment from your credit card issuer or its agent, you agree to pay all amounts due upon demand by Simply Electronics or its agents.

Taxes

By purchasing a product through the Site, customers outside of Hong Kong will normally be subjected to import duties and taxes and any other applicable customs related costs. Customs policies differ from country to country, which may result in indirect customs related costs in addition to the directly related customs costs charged by the courier. Customers typically should contact their local customs office if more information is required about this. Simply Electronics will have no control over applicable customs policies. You agree that you are the sole importer of the product(s) and are responsible for all import duties and taxes, and any related levies for the purchase of your product(s).

In other words, we import it for you and if you're caught then it's not our problem.

No established uk retailers are discounting the iPad Pro. It's full retail price or find someone selling theirs.

Correct 9/10 you don't pay. Honestly I'm not saying to order it's purely a there are cheaper options available out there.
