Custom clearance & taxes

Customs clearance paperwork and procedures are handled by the courier. They may need to contact you in certain cases to confirm details of a shipment. In any cases where additional paperwork is required for customs clearance, Chinavasion will assist you fully. Any local sales tax or import duty will be calculated when your goods enter your country: in most cases there is nothing to pay, but if there is, you simply receive a small surcharge bill when you receive the products.

- Please note that you are responsible for finding out in advance about the legality of importing your ordered items in your country - and about the legalities of importing goods into your country per se. We are not responsible for confiscated items by your local authorities or any associated costs incurred. Please read the full small print of the Chinavasion terms and conditions, which you are agreeing to at the point of placing an order.

- Customs clearance is undertaken by the courier in the delivery destination country (and in certain cases, in the en-route country). You must be available for contact by them, in the event of any query or clearance confirmation. You are responsible for knowing the regulations in your delivery country before placing your order.

Speak to the Chinavasion Customer Support Team if you need more advice about taxes, shipping invoices and paperwork, and customs declarations.

Paid VAT Tax for UK

To ensure faster and hustle-free delivery, Chinavasion will collect VAT tax now, so you don't have to pay it upon import/delivery.

From January 2021. Chinavasion started the practice of collecting 20% VAT tax at the checkout, for the UK shipping addresses.

Why do we do it?
Please note that upon import, every customer (importer) is legaly obligated to pay 20% VAT import tax, and this procedure delays delivery and is often perceived as additional cost. Beside that, VAT tax calculated by the local Customs might be charged higher than the real product value if Customs product value assessment is higher than real value!To avoid all this, to make Chinavasion shopping exeprience better for you, we arranged it so that VAT tax is paid at the moment of purchasing the product.

VAT tax is collected by the logistics company and then handed over to the customs. Chinavasion does not participate in other purposes.

Kindly note: If your order is shipped out and needs refund for some reason, the refund you get will not include the 20% VAT. Because VAT was handed over to the British customs by the UK.
