research International handling charges

Recommended Posts

Is everybody being hit with custom & handling charges via royal mail?

Added a total of £11.72 to my OrangePi H3 plus2 £3.72 customs and £8.00 handling charge.
Its no bother as just curiosity with Smaller format boards but just wondering is this a Brexit shape of things to come?

Not royal mail, but the last time I did only order a $12.99 silver NAS-case for the NanoPi Neo2 + $10 postage I had to pay

68 TL (around 12 EUR) for the customs/handling here in turkey :( that are 52% on top :(

In the EU

No, it's an EU thing

Edit: didn't finish - but there are variations depending on each country. Here in Spain, over 22€ you have to pay VAT + handling charges (IIRC 20 or so €), over 150€ you have to pay VAT + customs duties + handling charges. Less that 22€ you pay nothing (in theory).

But many parcels pass through customs with no charges (they cannot control everything).

No, China is from international to Europe.

 

When you order in China, ask them to mark it with a value like USD 11.- (this way ur are close to the truth).  Customs will look at:  postage + value == pay VAT or not.

Must of just gone over as £24.36 or unlucky as my BananaPoo M2 zero escaped the net.
It just came from this "Border Force" HWDC thing I had never heard of before as just thought it was HMRC.

PS I am not English, honest, just a European with a penchant for English football :)
