Many customers are purchasing products from China from abroad because of the competitive price and expanding international trading. Custom declaration is not a big deal for small business, especially the imitation jewelry of non-previous materials we sell. We have shipped many oversea orders since October, 2013. Everything is going smoothly and here are the experience to share.

We know that we need to follow the Custom rules for the real value of the items. If we don't do in the right way, we risk having the shipment returned to us or being prohibited from shipping to the destination country. But we understand we are here to help our customers to learn more how to avoid high import duty and tax when placing order abroad. Normally, if you buy products abroad, you need to pay for the import duty and tax or VAT when the package arrive at the Custom of your country. The import duty is vary for different products in different countries. While the tax or VAT means the internal tax when you buy from the local market. Please note that some countries call internal revenue tax, such in USA, while some countries call VAT, such in United Kingdom.

There are several tips that you need to know about import duty and tax (VAT):

1. To find out how not to be charged customs fees, contact your local customs office or visit your local custom website for more information. Most countries allow up to a certain value of goods into the country without any additional duties and taxes. You can check the import duty and tax(VAT) from your local custom website for more details. Normally duty of imitation jewelry of other materials (non-precious) result is nil because the total value of the products does not exceed a certain amount, for example, the value for duty occur is £135 GBP in UK while $200.00 in USA. But you need to consider the internal tax (in USA) or VAT (in UK), there is 20% VAT(tax) when invoice value over £15.00 GBP in UK but zero internal tax when the value less than $200.00 in USA. 

So knowing more about your country's import duty and tax is no harm as many buyers like you also have to check the Custom policy when import goods. Besides, your local suppliers also have to pay the same import duty and internal tax(VAT) when import the goods outside local market, they will consider the total cost factors into their final resell price.
