Import duty from Switzerland

  1. Hi,
    Can anyone tell me if there will be customs duty to pay
    when I buy something from Switzerland and get it sent to me in the UK?

    Thanks.

    Under international postal agreements, the sender must make a customs declaration on a form, which, in most cases, will be attached to the package. The declaration includes a description of the goods, their value and whether they are gifts or commercial items.

    So it depends on how much you paid for the item, I think the max without fees is £30 atm, and then you have to pay a handling fee for clearing it through customs, then the tax you would have paid for your item...
    I think! :p
