Do I have to pay tax on orders I buy at thingstoremembers.com?
maybe. it depends on what country you are receiving the goods in.
tax is a complex issue because it depends on what country you are receiving the goods into. some countries are easy to import into and have few restrictions and no taxes. other countries are ultra restrictive and have high taxes. before you start importing bigger quantities of products to your country, you’ll need to research what the law and practices are in your country (or shipping destination countries if you are dropshipping internationally).
please read the following notes for some basic background…
import duty and sales tax charged by your country:
some countries charge tax on certain imported products, at certain quantity/value levels. you are responsible for finding out the situation in your own country.
whatever you order from thingstoremembers .com, we will send you. we won’t enforce any rules so it’s up to you to make sure that what you are buying is ok to import into your country.
many countries charge two kinds of tax when you import anything from overseas. these are (1) sales tax (vat); (2) import duty. usually, these taxes are not very high, and the tax is calculated according to the value of the goods (+ shipping sometimes). on the other hand, many countries may not charge any tax on certain types of goods, or on small shipments.
packet contents affect tax
the category 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 may apply in your country as well – please research that information for your local country.
