Re: How to claim back VAT from online purchases.

On the site it seemed to say 12 + 3% for stuff coming from Zone 1, which includes France and Germany (given that amazon.fr and .de were discussed through the thread I thought it was relevant to point this out).

For a package worth 62 CHF (which is near the threshold for custom clearance) the 3% are worth 1.86, so this would put the fee at 13.86.

However I noted the site also has an extensive list of fees for "additional services", which include such nice services as "Inspection, value evaluation and storage", together with the above post I think that maybe they add this fee often?
