Online shopping and import charges

Question

I want to do some of my Christmas shopping on American websites. What are the rules about VAT and customs duties when shopping outside the EU?

Answer

You are importing goods if you buy goods from abroad online or from a mail order catalogue, or if you get goods that are sent as a gift from abroad. In general, when goods are imported into Ireland from a country outside of the EU, they become liable to import charges. These include VAT, customs duty and excise or other duties where relevant. In some cases, you can get relief from import charges.

If someone sends you a gift from outside the EU, and it is valued at under €45, you do not have to pay customs duty or VAT. To qualify for this relief, the gift must be of an occasional

Q. When it comes to food sizing, when might more be less than it seems?

A. "It’s harder to evaluate increases in the size of food servings than to judge decreases," reports University of California Berkeley "Wellness Letter." According to several studies in the "Journal of Experimental Psychology," subjects who took part in a downsizing test were fairly accurate but when supersizing was involved, they "greatly underestimated" the numbers. Even professional chefs and servers who should have had a sense of food quantities were equally error prone.

Researchers hypothesize that "it’s easier to gauge a decrease in portion sizes because there is a ‘natural lower bound’" of zero, below which nothing goes, whereas when portions increase, there’s no upper bound to help determine how big something has become. Overall, "this may be why people are likely

Gifts that last a lifetime

A goat isn’t the kind of gift you’d expect to find under the Christmas tree! However, the gift of a goat could be the ideal present for a friend or family member – a gift that gives both the recipient a great feeling, while at the same time doing real good for a family in need in Africa.

This Christmas, Irish development charity Gorta-Self Help Africa is offering shoppers the chance to select one of its practical ‘Lifetime Gifts’, allowing them to help rural families escape the cycle of hunger and poverty in some of the poorest regions on Earth.

From livestock to farming tools, seed to irrigation systems, the charity gifts, starting from just €10 will help small farming families in sub-Saharan Africa to produce more food on their farm, improve their incomes and brighten their future.

Let there be light

Are you affected positively or negatively by the clocks going back? Overnight, we lose an hour of light in our evenings, and I remain convinced that we only benefit by 30 minutes extra light in the morning! That said, I was finding it difficult to get up in the mornings with the darkness, so whilst personally I don’t like to see the clocks go back, I do like enjoy the mornings being brighter.

But it does take time to adjust to the darker evenings. I love the sights, sounds and smells of Autumn - the beautiful colours, the crisp mornings, the clear skies - but there is no doubt I will be happier when we reach

A major, two-year European Research Council-funded programme involving over 100 people diagnosed with the early stages of the most common cause of blindness has shown an improvement in the vision of those taking a dietary supplement of carotenoids.

Participants in the study all had the early stages of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) which is estimated to impact on 7.2% of Irish adults aged 50 and over.

Those living with AMD would usually have been expected to experience a continued deterioration in their vision over the two years of the clinical trial. Instead, those receiving carotenoids showed a significant improvement across 24 out of 32 tests of vision. 40% of trial participants had what is deemed to be a clinically meaningful

As the winter sets in, more people start drying their clothes indoors. However, as the Asthma Society of Ireland has warned, that many of the 11,039 asthmatics in Waterford could be damaging their health by doing so.

"Research has shown drying wet clothes indoors can raise moisture levels by up to 30%. Moist environments encourage the growth of mould which can release ‘seeds’ called spores", explains Averil Power, CEO of the Asthma Society of Ireland. "These often invisible spores can trigger breathing problems in people with asthma and other respiratory conditions."

The Asthma Society of Ireland has teamed up with Dyson Ireland to alert at risk asthmatics to the importance of managing their indoor air quality.

People whose asthma is more likely to be triggered by fungal and mould spores include babies and children, elderly people, people with existing skin problems such as
