Low Value Estimated Duties and Taxes
As a general rule, this exemption value is a value below which the destination Customs Authority have deemed that the costs associated with collecting the tax on goods will be greater than the potential tax to be collected. The exemption values, where applicable, differ by destination country. In addition there are certain commodity exceptions for which tax will be collected even if the declared value is below the exemption value. Examples of some of these exemption values are:

  • Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg The Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain – 22 Euro and below (certain commodity exceptions apply).
  • United Kingdom – 18.00 British Pounds and below (certain commodity exceptions apply).
