Order from the US or EU; to EU.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. In the US the price is 750$ while in EU its € 710. As you can see it's cheaper in the US, and it's including the shipment to Denmark.

Is there any bad things I should be aware of ordering from the US, while I'm in a EU country? Some specific rules apply here?

I heard somewhere that it doesn't matter, because in the end the price will be the same when the customer toll gets the packet? I will end up paying the same as if I ordered in EU? Is this true?

Thanks

Import duty can bite you in the arse. Check what the rate is in your local country. I believe for Gibraltar import duty is 6% for computer equipment. Since buying from Gibraltar means you're exempt from paying VAT, but you pay some extra for postage, it balances out into being cheaper to buy from the UK posted to Gibraltar than buying from the UK posted to within the UK. Sometimes it works out but check import duty rates.

When you say import duty rates, I take you mean the shipment costs from the US to etc Denmark, right? Shipment costs are 90$ but overall I end up saving quite a few bucks if I order from the US.

^This!
Basically your country says:

"Grrr, he/she didn't spend the money within our economy. Let's charge him/her a percentage of the price to make us happy."

Any local post office should be able to advise about import duty rates.

You should be able to buy from the US without paying US tax, I believe, because the item(s) would be delivered outside the US so the import duty you pay to your country is your tax. If your country's tax is lower than the US tax, then you profit!
This is nicely the case again for Gibraltar. You buy from Spain at 18% tax (I believe it's 18%) and then when you cross the border, you claim it back and pay the Gibraltar import duty, which is a lower rate even for the highest-rate items. In the end you save money.

Just thought of a good example. I once bought four shirts from Cafe Press, a US store. I bought them online from the UK, costing $80 or so. The items arrived in the UK and instead of receiving them in the post, I received a bill from Royal Mail. I had to pay about £8 or so, which I paid online to Royal Mail. As soon as I paid, the items arrived at my front door. This was the import duty, which you are free to consider a penalty for not having bought the four shirts from the UK and instead importing them from elsewhere.
