HELP! Prepaid Local Taxes and Duties in Diesel online store

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have recently discovered that I have to prepaid the Local Taxes and Duties for the diesel online store when shipping to Norway. When I changed the country to UK or Denmark, there's no such requirements for that. This is ridiculous. A jeans for 105 euros, I have to pay 198 euros, incl. shipping fee(25).

 

Can anyone please confirm if it's required to pay that much? Otherwise, I will send the jeans to a friend of mine in UK and resend it to me.

 

Thanks

norway is not a member of the EU.

that means as a result of that you have to pay custom taxes and fees.

depending on your country it varies.

 

but as I know scandinavian tax rates, it will be high.

 

in germany for example we have nothing to pay below 22euro.

above and till 175euro its 19% taxes of the total amount and over 175euro its 19%(sales tax) + 12%(taxes for clothing) so all in all 31%.

 

stuff like tobacco, perfume and alcohol got different, higher settled percentages.

 

so if you live in norway and want to be an honest citizen you have to pay taxes either your friend is shipping to your country or diesel online store.

 

if your friend ships to you he can mark as a gift with a low value so that you might have luck and there is no need to pay.

Thanks for the answer. If I have a friend in Germany who can buy jeans for me from the the online store, does it mean that he has to pay 19% or even higher depending on the amount as you said? Alternatively, I got a friend in Netherland who can do that too.

taxes 19% are included in the price. if you buy a 230 euro jean (and you live in Germany or Netherlands) , you have to pay 230.

so if your friend sends it to you, you have to pay 230 + shipping costs (if he marks it as gift or very low price).

exactly baltimore.

every item you purchase, no matter where, has their national taxes included.

if I buy a pair of jeans in the usa, I pay their taxes (within the price) plus tax rate for my own country. (19% in germany below 175euro)

every item you import to your country must be duty paid essentially.

 

I would suggest that you inform yourself about your local import taxes and conditions first.

what you have written sounds pretty bad.

 

198 total - 25 shipping - 105 jeans = 68 euro taxes only

 

68/130*100 = 52,31%

 

so you have to pay 52,31% taxes on imported clothes with a value of 130euro.

thats damn expensive.

but note that it could be various for other things.

a notebook maybe got a different percentage cause its an other category.

 

so check your customs center for more information.

 

additionally I have to say that even gift marked deliveries are not tax free.(at least here in germany)

below 45euro gift parcels are tax free but over 45euro you have to pay 17,5% of the declared value on the customs decleration.

 

thats why its so important that you inform yourself cause I can only say how the terms are in my country.

if the customs dont trust your information, they are investigating on their own about the current market value of your imported item,.

It is tax free atleast in Norway if you are tourist, make sure you ask the staff in the diesel store for how to refund tax, i think you need to fill out some forms in the airport before you leave the country, or somehow prove that you are a tourist in the store.
