He buys an item worth 500 in Germany, and collects it from Germany. He declares it at the Swiss border and pays 8% tax on 500 & he doesn't get the German 19% MWSt removed..

Or if the border guard waves him through, he pays nothing extra, but he doesn't get the German 19% MWSt removed.
So if the border guard stops you with 500+ euro worth of purchases at the border, is there some extra penalty on top for not volunteering the goods up front?

I'm also wondering, if you refuse the item and it is returned to Germany, what charges does the sender face? Is it just given back to them free of any charges?
