Hi all
spoke too soon just had a request to cough up 77 on a purchase of 300 worth of old cameras from Austria so I have asked DHL for a breakdown. The disconcerting thing is the cameras were delivered on the 11th of January.

What is scary about all this is the lack of clarity, how can you judge whether a purchase from EU is worth doing if you don't know if a 300 purchase will incur no extra bill, or an extra 77! Makes the price way more different.
I hope the situation becomes clearer and any extra costs can be calculated before buying anything.

Hi Clarkey

Not unusual for a courier to send invoice on after the delivery for the VAT etc..

Beware ignoring it. I once had a shipment from the US delivered and then never received the VAT invoice on the shipment which I had expected I had to pay. Eventually I had a debt collection agency sending letters demanding payment and their exorbitant fee. From memory the VAT was around 60 and the fee was over 100.

I contacted the courier direct and asked for copy invoice of the original VAT invoice and paid that direct to them. No more was heard from the debt company as these guys can be very unpleasant and definitely on the edge of the law at times.

Hi Kev

I think you should assume that there will be VAT and a fee of around 10 to pay, then you will not be surprised.

Guess so. Assume you have to pay, factor that in then if no payment needed its a bonus.
