“Do I have to pay tax on orders I buy at SilvLining.com?”
Maybe. It depends on the specific country that is receiving the shipped goods.
Tax is a very complex issue, and varies from one country to another. Some countries are easy to import products into, and have few restrictions and no taxes. Other countries are incredibly restrictive and have high import taxes. Before you start to import larger quantities of products to your country, you will need to research what the law and import practices are in your country (or for the specific destination countries that you are drop shipping into).
Please read the following notes for some basic background:
Import Duty and Sales Tax charged by your country
Depending on the specific country, some Customs offices charge tax on certain types of imported products at certain item quantities and values. Customs offices in other countries may not adopt this practice for certain items. You are responsible for finding out the situation in your own country.
Whatever goods you order from SilvLining.com.de, we will ship to you. We will not enforce any rules so it is up to you to make sure that what you are purchasing from us is acceptable to be imported into your country.
The category and type of goods you are importing often has an effect on whether you have to pay tax, or how much.
Obviously, certain categories of dangerous or restricted goods are illegal to import in most countries. Other specific restrictions on certain items such as spy cameras and jammers may also apply in your country. Please carefully research the relevant information for your local country.
Many countries charge two kinds of tax when you import from overseas: sales tax (VAT) and import duty. Generally, these two taxes are not very high and the payable amount of tax is based on the value of the goods (and occasionally the shipping).
