Oki Ni Vat and Customs Question

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I remember this being discussed before, but search brings up nothing as 'oki, ni & vat' are all 3 letters or less. Do I need to email Oki Ni prior to ordering to get VAT exemptions applied to my account? or do I have to order and then contact them to remove VAT? Has anybody done this successfully? I heard some things before how Oki Ni played dumb on refunding VAT which is stupid. Also, am I correct in assuming that if im buying 1000gbp worth of stuff...they should subtract 20% VAT to make it 800gbp...but I'll have to pay 10% customs fees on the value which would be about 100gbp? So pretty much I should take 10% whatever price I'm seeing right now on Oki Ni? Trying to make sure I have this right before I purchase anything. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Just email them to get put the no vat list and it'll get subtracted during checkout.

Yep, I literally just emailed them yesterday about it. Got an email today saying that my account had been flagged and vat would be subtracted, no problems. I'm not sure about customs fees though. Guess I'll find out.

Yeah, I got a response too.

However, do not subtract 20% from the price seen. They subtract 20% from the actual price of the item, before their markup.

Dammit I hate finding something I like overseas

I want to order an item from Italy, the item is under $200 which in my case I have noticed no customs problems with items under 200. Buuuuut it states that for E.U. customers the VAT is not applied so even if the item is under 200, will I will still get charged with customs?

^ Sounds strange, why would EU customers be exempt from paying VAT if it's from Italy? You can get charged by customs regardless of whether VAT was included in the price.
