Taxes and vat

Post by stadel » Sun Mar 29, 2015 4:56 pm

Hi
If I order a Shapeoko 3 with delivery for Denmark, the shop adds 400€ for delivery.
But will I be charged taxes and vat locally, or that a part of the 400€?

You'll have to pay that separately.

Not certain how the Danish post does it, but here in Norway the Post hold my packages and send me a COD note.
If its sent with a shipper such as DHL, you may have to pay up front as they deliver the package, or you may get a bill in the post later.

There no companies in the EU shipping the Shapeoko?

It's getting pretty expensive to buy the kit, because in Denmark I'll have to pay +25% VAT, so it be about 350 EURO extra :-(

Well, yes, but the eShapeoko is no Shapeoko 3. It's comparable to the Shapeoko 2.

The other person is correct, you pay duty on the kit (7.5%) and VAT on everything: kit, duty, and delivery cost. There's also a small charge levied by the delivery company. This is on top of the delivery price. It doesn't quite double the cost of the kit, but it gets close.
