Will I have to pay import duties or taxes?Updated 8 months ago

Whether or not you will have to pay import duties depends on several factors, including your location and the specific details of your order. The import duty policies vary from one country to another, so it's important to understand the rules that apply to your situation. Here's a breakdown of the different scenarios:

Clients in the European Union, USA & Hong Kong:

If you are located in the European Union, the USA or Hong Kong, you will not be required to pay importation and custom duties to receive your order. This means that your order should be delivered to you without any additional fees related to import duties or customs.

Clients in the UK:

If you are in the United Kingdom, the Value Added Tax (VAT) is already included in the cost of your order. However, you may still be responsible for paying duties, which are approximately around 5% of the total value of your order. The VAT will be handled by the seller, but you should be prepared to cover the duties when your order is delivered.

Clients in Canada and Mexico:

For customers located in Canada and Mexico, your orders are billed excluding taxes. Import duties, taxes, and other related charges are not included in the initial purchase price. Therefore, you should expect to pay for duties, taxes, and other charges upon receipt of your order. The specific amounts and rules governing these charges will depend on the particular customs regulations and importation policies of your country.

Clients in the Rest of the World:

For clients located in other countries not mentioned above, the same principle applies. Orders are billed excluding taxes, so import duties, taxes, and other charges are not included in the initial purchase price. You should anticipate incurring additional fees upon receipt of your order, based on the specific customs and importation regulations of your country.

Please note that, if the parcel is rejected and returned to Meermin, any return charges, taxes or duties that Meermin gets charged will be deducted from any refund owed. If you need any further information please do not hesitate reaching our Support team.
