Re: Advice to all people on shipping parcels to Swiss

Bump up.

I ordered a pair of sunglasses from Italy. Their value was 114CHF.
Fedex added 22CHF "admin fees" (no further detail), customs duty was 0.20CHF, and they even added 1.75% VAT on the admin costs.

I ended up having an invoice in front of me for 35.10CHF for an item that should've had ~9.2CHF VAT.

<rant>I'm quite reluctant to pay the amount as it seemed the package was never touched by the Customs Office, it's just a random value from Fedex put it for not doing anything, apparently</rant>

found some additional fodder for the same topic in German:

What are my options? I can't call FedEx until Monday as they are out of regular business hours already.
