Import Duties Calculation

Import Duties Calculation

Didn't find your answer?

We will be ordering from our supplier in Germany parts approx. value £10k in total.

We can use calculator on gov website to check import duties. If the parts are of e.g. Japanese and Chinese origin would we pay import duties or will German supplier pay them upon importation from Germany?

If it is us who is liable for import duties, would we pay 0% for Japanese origin parts as we have agreement with Japan?

Thank you so much. We would really appreciate your reply.

If the goods arrive into the UK with proof of origin being Japan, and if the commodity code for that product states that the import duty is 0%, then there should be no import duty applicable.

On similar topic, trust you have postponed VAT all set up and make sure your German supplier gives the freight agent/shipper your GB EORI number and instructions you want to use postponed import VAT Accounting (assuming you want to postpone!).
