Re: New Business...importing things, clothing, food, misc things from the USA

Hi

I have been looking at this subject. For the moment i deal in highend audio and would be importing directly from japan.

I checked out the duties and of course there is 7% VAT to pay but also the 15% net weight duty. Can someone explain this 'net weight' thing?

In france the cost to import is large..near 20% VAT + duties is a killer for anyone wanting to start a company! Of course it is all reclaimable but....

I am a powerseller on ebay.

Thanks

Richard
