VAT is applied locally to all destinations in the European Union, United Kingdom and the USA.
In many countries, shipments are made as DDP (Delivery Duty Paid), where all the applicable import and customs fees are included in the final product price.
Products are shipped as DDP in the following countries:
United Kingdom (starting 1/1/2021)
Korea, Republic of
Taiwan, Province of China
United Arab Emirates
All other countries are to be considered DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid) destinations: the price of the products does not include taxes and VAT. All import taxes, customs fees, and local taxes imposed by the sender's country must be borne by the recipient. These fees will need to be paid so as to exempt the order from customs charges.
We are unable to estimate how much tax and duty you will need to pay, so please check this before placing an order. The shipping costs are already included in the final order total. In any case, the courier can provide you with a separate invoice with the local taxes to be paid.
You may be required to provide identification information by the Customs office of your country on import. US customers may be required to provide an identification number to US Customs. Please contact your local customs office for more details on the import information required by your country of import.
Any items shipped to China that are intended for personal use and whose value exceeds 1000 RMB, are subject to a formal customs clearance procedure. Additional taxes or fees may apply.
