Import personal goods from Germany

Hello everybody,

I recently went to Germany to buy clothes and stamped my receipts in the German border, Singen, and gave those receipts to global blue refund counter as soon as I arrivedto Zurich HBF.

However I received a registered letter form the customs in Schaffhausen saying that they received a copy of the receipts from the customs in Singen. They demand that I submit my import declaration from (what is this?) with the receipts and the payment of the taxes of 8% or, if not, they might initiate criminal proceedings.

I did not know about this. I have no problem with paying the 8% tax but I do not have the receipts anymore, and I do not know where or how to pay.

Shall I go to the customs in Schaffhausen and talk to the officer or what would be the best solution?

Thanks in advance!
