    Customs to and from Netherlands

    Hi!

    Me again.

    I tried googling this... When shipping items to and from the netherlands - are there any import taxes ? I assume that shipping to and from any other EU country would result in taxes.

    Also, the import tax in Aruba, is it beyond the 3% VAT or is that only levied on locally sold items or imports aswell ? I assume there are customs on certain types of goods on top of this...

    Thanks,

    Morgan

    I am thinking about taking a 32inch LCD TV set (check in luggage) with me when I go to Aruba next month. I wonder if the custom will allow me to bring it in. Do I need to pay the duty? How much? Any advice is appricated.

    If you don't claim it and are not discovered I suppose good for you.

    If you do claim it, the duty on Electronics is 12.0 %

    Penalty, if any, for not claiming it and being discovered...

    Thank you, I will have it packed in the original box. Well, that is my concern.
    By the way, how much does it cost for a 32"LCD TV set in Aruba?

    I have bought a lot of electronics for my house and in general you can say that it is 20-120% more expensive than in the US depending on where you buy it. In average 50%.
