Internet shopping outside the European Union

It is increasingly common to find products at a good price on websites that ship these products from outside the EU, especially from China. We must bear in mind that, being products from outside the EU, we will have costs associated with the importation, which are often not very visible in the websites that offer them.

Such imports are usually received by international courier or by postal mail and, although the buyer is a private individual, have the character of imports.

In this way, the cost of the purchase can be increased by the VAT (that is not deductible for individuals), the applicable tariffs and the special taxes in some products.

These costs have exempt minimums, in case the seller is a company, which is the most common case.

Shipments between individuals (Gifts) are exempt the shipments of up to 45 euros.

Above this amount, both the VAT and the corresponding tariffs are payable.
