    Called Fedex today... Tax on Fedex fee!?

    Hello, all.

    I called Fedex about my package.
    It has been some delay due to customer

    They say I have to pay 25% VAT for the item AND the 25% of the FEDEX Germany cost + Customer fee (some % after all VAT) !

    The watch becomes a bit expensive now... (My next Stowa will then be even more expensive...)

    Dislike the import fee policy!

    Hi,

    For my reference, what country are you importing your Stowa to (I assume it is in the EU with VAT)? I did not think that there was VAT on shipping services. You learn something new each day I guess.

    Mine should ship soon and I was thinking that I would owe 3.1% US import tariff.

    You'd better use regular mail rather than FEDEX/UPS/DHL in that case you'll normally receive watch without clearance, eg it is not commercial in a single qty, they use different custom law for courier express delivery and regular mail.

    I also would like not to be unpleasantly surprised when I order a watch. But, do you live in or outside the EU?

    I also live in Norway and I recieved my Airman this Monday. I didn't have any problems with delays and I knew about "25% VAT for the item" but I haven't heard anything about "25% of the FEDEX Germany cost + Customer fee". Should I be worried or should I just wait til I get my 25% VAT bill?

    Hello,

    Just about to order my Airman Automatic, was wondering if anyone in the USA is having to pay extra tax on the delivery?

    I haven't seen any mention of it elsewhere on the forums, but just wanted to double-check!
