Buy Abroad - Customs

Postby martin007 » 01 Jul 2018, 12:40

Hello.

When you buy a product abroad, (sometimes) you have to pay a customs tax.
It depends on the value of the product and who sends it to you.

In Spain all products over € 22 (bought in a store) pay taxes.
If the product sent by a friend, the maximum value of tax-free products is € 45.


How does customs work in your countries?

Buy in china, or in hong kong and 90% of the time I never paid a thing.
Buy in AUS same thing.
Buy in USA and get charged VAT 20% plus a fee from the UK post service of some kind. Seems to vary. And they charge even if correctly marked as TAX RELIEF CLAIMED and correctly shipped. Because for Disability related items we should not pay. Trying to get it back is almost impossible as the phone is never answered.

Import excise taxes range from 20% to 570%. Value Added Tax (VAT) is applied to the sum total of the customs value, the customs duty, and any excise tax. Russian customs VAT is levied at the same rates as Russian sales VAT – generally 18% for most goods, works, and services.11 Aug 2017
