The customs

Hi everyone!

I would like to know how many I have to pay if I buy a piano in Spain or in another country and I bring it here. I mean, the customs. I don't have any idea about that. Thank you very much for your help!

Re: The customs

Hi there,

The duty for your object should be between CHF 41.- and CHF 54.- / 100 kg gross weight, but then you still might have expenses for the Phytosanitary check (if requested by customs, likely) VAT and the fees for your customs agent, unless you handle it on your own..

See here: Tares chapter 9201
