Hi Dave,

I don't really care about your logistics, just use what is best for you. I will want to use the lowest cost airmail, essentially as I want the entire cost (toy + postage) to stay below USD 80 or so, stay within the duty-free area. If goes above that I'll have to pay import duty, VAT and handling fee, adding another USD40.

I think this is similar in most other European countries.

damm your lucky...

Here in Denmark we have the duty-free limit at 80 DKR(Danish) and 80 DKR is around 14,3$

So this means that if we buy some thing from outsite EU and the value WITH SHIPPING is more then 14,3$ then it will look like this.

Let say an item to 25$ and shipping cost of 5$

Item cost                     = 25$
Shipping                      =   5$
25% tax of the 30$     =   9$
Tax handling fee         = 21,4$

So that is an total of 60,4$ for an item costing 25$

In Australia, we don't get taxed on anything less than $1000... Even so customs isn't all that strict on enforcing it either.

The precise regulation here is that they don't collect the TVA, if it is below CHF 5 (slightly more than USD 5). The TVA is 8%, so the limit is around 65, actually. Looks like the USD gained ground since I calculated it last autumn. I don't mind to pay the TVA, it is not that high, but they add a handling fee of CHF 20 and deliver the stuff by COD where the post office adds another COD fee, so the fees add up.
