Customs Duties and Taxes
Customs Duties and Taxes for International Shipments
When a package ships internationally, it may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and/or fees imposed by the destination country. These charges are typically due once the package arrives in the destination country. Unless otherwise noted, items sold by Endemigo are subject to tax in accordance with the applicable laws of that jurisdiction/state/territory/country. If your order contains one or more items from a seller other than Endemigo, it may be subject to tax in non-marketplace collection jurisdictions depending upon the seller's business policies and the location of their operations.
Sellers are responsible for complying with the laws and regulations of the country of destination. Generally, the buyer is responsible for paying customs duties on receipt of the package.
These fees are in addition to the price and shipping cost you are charged when checking out. Applicable duties and taxes are calculated at the border and based on the nature of the item, final price of the item, and the destination country.
For U.S. import questions please refer to the Customs & Border Protection website.
For EU import questions please refer to the European Commission website.
For UK import questions please refer to the UK Government website.
For an international purchase, you are responsible for payment, any applicable customs duties and taxes.
To clear customs, you will also be required to provide personal information such as your SSN, EIN, IRN, TIN, or EORI. The shipping carrier will contact you about the required information, declaration, and owed fees which must be paid before delivery of your purchase is scheduled.
Please note that shipping delays due to customs processing are not uncommon.
Although we do not have control over customs delays and are not involved in the determination or collection of these fees, if you have any questions about customs, feel free to us at email@example.com

For orders above the stated amounts, customs duties and VAT will be collected by the postal operator when the goods are imported.
The sale of products and services (not including digital content) will be taxable in the country associated with the delivery address of the customer. Tax is charged at the applicable rate in accordance with local legislation in each country.
VAT rates may vary depending on the destination country and product type.
Goods shipping between EU countries
Customs duty is not applied on goods sold within the EU. However, VAT may still be applicable.
Goods arriving into EU from non-EU country
When shipping goods from a non-EU country into an EU country, customs fees and VAT may apply on these goods.
The amount of customs duty and VAT to be paid will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. This may result in the buyer having to pay additional charges which are not included in the total price displayed at checkout.
Generally, VAT isn’t due when the total value of all goods in a consignment (value not inclusive of custom duties or transport costs) is less than the destination country threshold. The threshold may vary from €10 to €22, depending on the EU country.
For VAT, the rate that is assessed is the rate set by the country that the package is shipped to.
Customs duty does not typically apply on goods where the value doesn’t exceed €150 euro.

Other countries may also apply customs duty and/or VAT on goods purchased from another country. The amount of customs duty and VAT to be paid will be assessed at the point of entry of the destination country. This may result in the buyer having to pay additional charges which are not included in the total price displayed at checkout.
As the threshold for the application of such charges may vary from country to country, please contact your local customs/ tax office for further information. Alternatively, you should check with your local tax advisor for more information.
