    If I buy a SC from the UK or Italy/Germany, do I need to pay that extra tax/tariff on my item?

    Please let me know as this will be my first out of country purchase

    This doesn't really help. In some cases duty is charged. In others not.
    That has been my experience- with the same vendor: Hilditch and Key.
    The purchases were several years apart. On my last one in 2011 no duty
    was charged.

    Are you visiting these countries in person or are your ordering them online/phone?

    If you are visiting the countries, you can request at VAT refund at the airport. Depending on the price paid, you may have to pay import duty tax when you return back home.
