Guidelines on duties and taxes for US Buyers
If you purchase goods from outside the US, Customs Duty and/or Import VAT may be due.
- It is the responsibility of the sender, in Boticca's case the designer, to provide details of the goods that are being shipped for the calculation of duty and VAT.
- It is the responsibility of the buyer to pay for any additional Duty or VAT due.
- Items under $200: As a general rule, if you purchase items valued at under $200, you shouldn't have any trouble importing them.
- Items over $200: If you import items that cost over $200 for personal use (gifts are excluded), you might have to pay a duty, or tax, on the item. The amount of the duty, if any, depends on the type of the item and its value. Some items can be imported without paying any duty at all.
