    So did you tell Ray to declare 22 & 40 ??

    Mine spent 1 week in Spanish customs! Then another week lost by the Spanish post office!!! Eventually got it and was charged 30 for the privelige.
    Declared as computer monitor $228 US
    30 was for the IVA (Equivalent to VAT)

    [QUOTE]

    No. Hadn't even thought of that. Was expecting to pay for the import duties at full price if needed.

    Not sure Ray even knew as forms were filled out at the Hong Kong end.

    Same here,
    Invoice declared value of computer monitor as 22 which coincidently is how much extra I had to specify to pay for the touchscreen. Sort of buy touch screen get screen declared as nothing
