Re: Import taxes for Artworks

What sort of value are we talking about here? According to the official website - it depends how long you've owned the artwork before importation. You have to pay tax if it is less than 6 months. Then VAT is due at 7.6%. You need the original bill of an expert valuation for the calculation. Otherwise the customs will appoint a valuation expert at YOUR cost.

BTW you also have to pay tax as part of your 'fortune' here in CH for any expensive art work, watches, etc.
