When comparing our prices remember, that our company is based in the UK (part of the European Union - "the inner market"), all customs and import duties are fully paid, and taxes are included in our £, € and DKK prices. The only additional cost is shipping, click here .
We of course sell worldwide, and as such the first price we show is in US$, this price is ONLY for orders sent to a country outside of Europe and the European Union (EU), and you may have to pay import duty and/or taxes when your order arrives.
When is a bargain price not a bargain? The total cost may not be everything it seems. If you are in the European Union and buy something from regions outside the EU (like North America or the Far East), you will have to pay higher shipping cost, adding considerably to the price.
Then, when your order arrives in your EU country, it will be treated as an import. You may have to pay import duty (rates vary from item to item), BUT you will have to pay VAT on top of the price you have paid, so add another 15 - 25% to what you have paid (yes, 25% if you live in Denmark or Sweden).
The carrier (shipping company, courier or postal service) will pay both import duties and VAT on your behalf, BUT they will require the payment from you before they deliver. You can refuse delivery, but you will lose your payment (or at least shipping costs both ways) and may end up with legal action from the carrier who will want to reclaim any duties, VAT and any costs they may have had. So the bottom line is check what the additional costs are (shipping, import duty and VAT), these could add as much as 50% to the final buying price. If the price looks too good to be true, it probably is!
