Accounts and Payments

Why do I have to pay duty and taxes?

Import duty and tax are mandated by legislation. Payment or intent to pay must be made before goods can be released for import.

Certain reliefs exist for private importers (gifts, moving home) as well as those in the commercial field (use or purpose of import)
