Will I be charged VAT or import tax on my purchase?

If you purchase from the USA shipping location, any shipments going to a U.S. address will not be charged VAT/import tax. It is likely that shipments to Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America will be charged an import tax.

If you purchase from the EU shipping location and you are shipping to an address inside the European Union, there is no customs declaration required and you would not be charged VAT/import tax. If your country is not inside the European Economic Zone (such as Switzerland, Norway, North & South America, Asia, Africa, etc.), it is likely that you will be charged a VAT/import tax.

AkaTako does NOT pay the VAT/import taxes for you in advance. It is up to you to know your laws and to pay the fees.

Because the VAT/import taxes vary for each country, please search for your country to find out if you may be charged. Some countries do not charge for items under $30 while some place the limit at $100. Some countries charge smaller percentages, etc.

In general, AkaTako will provide invoices on the outside of the package for "Expedited Shipping" shipments or purchases over $100. If you require invoices please request them in the "Order comments" section.
