Re: Birthday present on it's way - but at what cost?!

For actual gifts the threshold is CHF 100, shipping cost is excluded.
An item value up to around 77 would thus be o.k.

Tell your mother she better fills in government forms correctly and accurate, specially does relevant for tax such as the CN22

We have just paid 42.- in tax on a 99.- order.
You paid only CHF 7.70 of actual import tax to the government.
All the rest is handling fees pocketed by the courier. And you got extra stiffed because the seller did not fill in the tax relevant CN22 correctly and accurate.
