How Much Tax Do I Need To Pay?

Do I have to pay import duties on products sent from Chinavasion?
Short answer: in many countries, no... but many countries yes, more in some countries, less in others.
Please note that all import taxes / duties are the recipient's responsibility. So if you are delivering to someone else like a friend or direct to a customer, any taxes payable will be their initial responsibility.
Chinavasion will accept no responsibility for customs costs incurred.
Many countries do not charge import duties on private items, samples, and goods below a certain stated value.
However, you may find that you have to pay taxes when goods youâ€™ve ordered from us arrive in your country.
Obviously you will want this to be as low as possible, but Chinavasion CANNOT give you advice or information about tax rates and customs charges in your country.
All we can do is declare the value of the shipped goods at a nominal value (see below), which may still be fully taxable.
Items shipped from Chinavasion will be declared at the lowest nominal market price as a standard assumption.
This lowest market price is based on the manufacturing origin and might not be reflective of how much the item will cost you if bought in your local retail market.
You must ensure you find out about regulations in your own country before ordering from Chinavasion. In most countries the actual origin of the goods (China) is not important: only the declared value of the goods and declared contents is relevant.
Let us know if you have any special packing or labelling instructions when placing your order. Add comments to the box on the "Delivery Information" page of the Checkout Process.
Chinavasion will never falsely identify or misrepresent goods on customs forms.
Chinavasion does not add any sales taxes or hidden charges to orders.
