Hi,

Any of you guys tried buying gold online from gold.ae? Are they trustworthy? I believe they charge some commission as well if you ask for the bars to be delivered to you physically?

Any suggestions on the the exact places to buy gold from?

Best way to buy Gold bars in Dubai is go to the go
Shops that sell only bars you will get best prices. It will be less than the famous jewelry shops.
Also best to buy in person this way you can see the items and feel it before you handover your cash.
Gold prices in Dubai is at lowest prices now since long time. Its a good time to buy.

Because at the moment Dirham to GBPounds exchange rate is rubbish...I am planning to use the Dirhams to buy investment Gold bars...maybe 4x100g bars which will be valued just over 10,000GBPounds

This is why I desperately need to know if I will be taxed (VAT) at any rate 17.5% or 20% when I land at Heathrow Airport.
If I have to pay tax then my life savings nest egg is gojng to be considerably smaller

Thats why I need informed advise from any legal expert members here....who have experienced similar situation.
Hi there I have been studying this for a while it is better to buy on a uae bank wire through the company world first with no fee find them online. Buy gold from ''goldline'' in the ukand wire them the money they post to your address in the uk, no tax, no customs and no worries you will lose less than .5% of your wealth this way and the price ob bullion and coins is similar to the gold in the emirates. Without certification which is usually 100 AED per piece. It is much easier to buy from baird's in london... hope this helps...

Hi,
Gold bars do not attract VAT if you bring them to the UK - they are exempt.
Cheers
Steve

Thanks a lot for the prompt response.
It is great news. However, I need to know:
1- is there a limit of how many I can carry ?
2- Do I need to declare them or do any official paperwork before arrival since I am not a UK Citizen and will be coming on a temporary stay visa ?
many thanks
