There's no import duty to pay on goods travelling within the EU (so none for a UK customer buying from Thomann). VAT will be charged by Thomann (they're VAT registered in the UK so they charge the UK rate to UK customers, good given that's just been reduced to 15% compared to Germany's usual 19%...), though if you're a VAT registered business in the UK you may be able to get Thomann to zero-rate it in the same way a UK company would.
