Please help! I got a Zollrechnung through FedEx

Hi, all

Today I received this Zollrechnung for 151CHF!!!!!!

I just received a gift from my friend outside EU. It was written the cost is CHF200-300.

TOday I received this. May I know anyway to exempt or to lower? It is incredibly terrible.

Call them and ask them to explain. Seems high....maybe they made an error.

Re: Please help! I got a Zollrechnung through FedEx

Hard to tell if you just quote the final sum of the bill and you do not state what it actually is.

How much of the bill is VAT?
How much of the bill is duty and other taxes?
How much of the bill is handling and processing fee from FedEx?

There should be a link and login details on the bill to get the detailed declaration from the Swiss Customs website.

Additionally see this information from Swiss Customs:

and

The breakdown it says

Vorlageprovision 22
Eust/Import VAT 25.35
Zolle 102.9
CH Ust 7.7% 1.7


So is this justified?
