How do you know what the marked value of the package is? Or do they show it to you first?

Anyways, 30 USD is still about 60-100$ in import taxes, but I guess that's to be expected.

You guys pay 60-100$ on a item "worth" $30? What the fuck would you pay for an item when it is actually worth ~$900?

 

The threshold for the US is under $200 isn't it? I use to live in Canada and it was $60 and Australia is $900. The EU is really trying to stop imports huh...

I think you might be mistaken on this. I used to study Danish politics, and am pretty sure that the import taxes are somewhat normal for EU standards. So maybe 0-20%, depending on the class of items. Maybe as high as 50% if you're importing from some country like China, where there's an anti-dumping regulation, but a place like South Korea is an unlikely candidate.

FWIW, I used to live in Russia, where there's massive import taxes, and even there, it's not that bad.

I live in Spain and I recently had to pay 186 euro in customs duties for an item with a declared value of 360 euro coming from Japan.

It's a lot higher than 20%, but that's also because they add import charges, import taxes and VAT. I recently paid 50$ for a pair of pants where the seller had marked them down to 30$.

Importing a TOJ jacket to Denmark will incur approximately the following charges:

25% of (actual) jacket value in VAT
12% of (actual) jacket value in customs
USD 30 in customs handling fee.

So, a USD 800 dollar jacket will cost a Dane an additional 326 dollars to get out of the customs.

And, by the way, the Danish customs authority do not care about what value is stated on the parcel, they open everything to determine its actual value. I suspect it is like that in the rest of Scandinavia, if not the EU, as well.

Parcels marked with a value sub $100 usually pass right through customs.

Anyone else got tracking or jacket lately?

Literally never happened to me. And when I am in DK, I usually order a lot of stuff from overseas.

Happens all the time for me.

how do you know the same value as the package has been marked? did you contact TOJ and ask?

Seriously, what's going on with daypacks and wallets @impolyt_one ?

post #40754 of 43024

I don't know if there's a way to avoid the import charges since it's MTM, though. For some reason Luxire can ship to the EU without any import charges, and I'm pretty sure they don't mark down their packages.

I got hit with ~£20 import charges on one of my 5 orders, most of which was admin fees :(
