Switch kite EU import tax ?

Postby BillyGoatGruff » Sat Jun 09, 2018 9:20 pm

Anyone in the UK bought a Switch kite and had to pay import tax ? Their prices look very good but being New Zealand based would you pay standard rate import tax into EU ?
thanks

As far as I know, Switch uses a EU based warehouse for distribution in the EU and the prices already include VAT.

I thought the same until a few days ago I placed an order for an Element kite. It is coming from Hong Kong warehouse...

Hope that I don't have to pay any import tax...

If you order from EU, tax is included.

If you are located in Europeand and your parcel will be shipped to a EU country, your kite is comming from the UK warehouse. So no VAT on top.
