tax on internet purchases

I want to buy the new Football Manager game online. This costs 32.99 euros on Amazon.de. If i have this delivered to my flat in Geneva, will i have to pay any extra costs? VAT?

If so, any idea how much more it would cost me?

Hi Lost in Geneva,

Whenever we order DVDs or CDs on Amazon we do tend to have to pay some extras, ranging between CHF 8 to 15. No doubt you have already checked this out, but what does the game retail at across the border in France? Perhaps this would work out cheaper. We got some great bargains just across the border in Italy.

If you spend under 60.- CHF on item(s) and shipping, you do not get taxed. I generally keep my purchases small and then it works out fine. Just a bit over and you can get taxed 20.- just like that.
