Taxes to Europe?

Apr 05, 2013 @ 08:52
Hey guys i have a problem, did something like this happened to anyone else?

I life in Austria and bought the Supreme fishtail for 450$ inclusive shipping to Austria (from the US, Seattle)

Today the package arrived and they wanted 130€ for taxes and other stuff. dafuq???????
That's an extra 180$

I feel very stupid now that i bought a jacket for that amount of money (wanted to suprise me for my birthday) but i don't feel good now.

are those taxes normal or is just the austrian Zoll so ......******

anyone had some problems like this?

Diese Steuern sind normal ist auch hier in Deutschland so. Man hat eine bestimmte abgabenfreien Betrag den man nicht ueberschreiten sollten da sonst Steuern draufkommen, weissŸ jetzt nicht wie viel es in Oesterreich ist aber wird auch sehr niedrig sein wie in Deutschland. Ist halt dumm gelaufen fuer dich, haettest dich vielleicht davor informieren sollen.

Ich wuerde dir empfehlen Supreme Stuff aus England zu bestellen wird durch die Umrechnung etwas mehr aber dafuer sparst du dir Steuern ;)

und wo bestellst du supreme zeugs aus England? eventuell hab ich so viel zahlen müssen weil er die original Rechnung beigelegt hat und sie einvach eine einkommenssteuer dazu gehaut haben : /

Meistens aus ebay.co.uk aber ich schau mich auch hier immer um ob jemand aus England was verkauft. Es soll am Ende vom Jahr laut Geruechten auch einen Supreme Online Shop fuer Europa geben hoffen wir es mal ;)
In Deutschland ist es so das wenn die Zoellner nicht sagen koennen wie viel es kostet das sie dann selber den Wert bestimmen duerfen und dann so die Steuern draufhauen. Von daher war es wahrscheinlich sogar ganz gut das er die Rechnung beigelegt hat.

aso aber die haun nur was drauf wenn du aus den USA bestellst? oder auch bei ebay.co.uk aber da sind ja meistens die Sachen auch gefälscht oder?

Ja aus Drittlaendern zum Glueck gehoert aber England zur EU ;) Und wegen den Faelschungen bei den meisten sieht man es sofort und wenn du dir mal nicht sicher bist kann ja hier im Forum nachfragen was die anderen davon halten

nah the thing is if you suprise yourself with something you really want it's way better then you expect something and then you receive potatoes in some self maded pullovers!

ist doch gut, warum bist du dagegen?
Apr 17, 2013 @ 08:22
ah ok thank you!

But! If the customs duty take a look in the package and identify it is as worth more than $20, he must probably pay a fine and the taxes.

Why should he Pay a fine? The seller marked it as 20$, not he

Yeah but the bill goes though to him. At least it is here in Germany like this.
Apr 24, 2013 @ 14:38
thexvid is right, the customs only have to take a look and when its more worth than 20-30$ you have to pay taxes, over 150€ you have to pay 17% Zollsteuer and 19% Einfuhrsteuer

Im living in Berlin, and been thinking how to get around the hefty tax issue.

so from people above, you just simply mark the packet as gift and people at Zollamt will just believe that? that's so awfully too simple, isnt it? lol will they ask for some kind of proof? 

or can I just like down-value it? but again they will ask for the proof of payment. 

thanks in advance

they will only check if they feel there is a reason to, typically. or if it is something that is insured. so if you have a high priced item, and you should insure it, then they will want you to pay the taxes. if its something small and not insured, you can easily get away with it, but you run the risk of losing the item without insuring it. It's a gamble, and dépends on how much value you assign to said item. but yes, in general, quite easy to say something is a gift. because, really, people send gifts constantly, so, what can they do about it?
Dec 02, 2013 @ 10:41
thanks buddy.

how can they tell if something insured or not? just ordered shitload of stuff from HB.

I told a seller to mark a package as a gift and still had to go to the Zollamt and pay taxes.. I don't know if this is an exception and I was just unlucky. I recommend you to tell the seller to add an "Proforma Rechnung" in the amount of 0 Euro and to put a gift card inside to be sure incase they open it.
