1. Vat on tarot cards is currently 20%. This applies
on items over GBP 15.
For items valued above GBP 135 there will be an additional import duty applied.

2. If delivered by Royal Mail the handling fee is GBP 8.
Parcel force appears to make the same charge.

3. You cannot deal with the UK Customs directly. If
you don't pay within a fixed time the packet will be
sent back to the seller. The Royal Mail staff have
no room for discretion or negotiation.

In practice the postal system is so busy that only a few
items are charged. You will find that often you will
not be charged for months on end then suddenly one
will get charged. It is a bit of a lottery. Many items
get through without being charged, even though they should be.
