Default Importing??

Soon im ordering 3350grams of shisha from america, but in customs i know you get charged 70 per kilo of shisha but what if you had 900 grams?? would you not get charged becuase its under 1000grams?? also is there any ways to get around customs?? say if it was a 'birthday present' would customs still charge you for it

Cheers everyone, RR

if you want to bring in that much youl just have to take a risk, they charge 70 per kg but they will still charge you 90% of 70 if you bring in 900g. i used to import 12kg every few weeks without a problem as they dont really check everything, just label it as gift

It depends on what the local customs regs are. Sometimes it's per kilo or any portion of a kilo gets the same rate while other times the tariff corresponds to what percentage of a kilo you bring in.

What I suggest is that you have a friend ship the moassel along with a bunch of other stuff and have the other stuff declared on the tariff forms. It works provided that the moassel is hidden in saya bag of rice or dried fruit.

When I read threads like this it makes me glad to reside in the US. Its basically the hottest place for hookah besides the Middle East.

Cos customs are gay, but i have noticed since christmas the customs have become more strict, i know all packages from dubai are getting stopped and checked and 2 of my packages from the US were stopped for the first time, lucky it was only hookahs and not flavour so all i had to pay was VAT.

Oh also you are gonna have to pay VAT if they believe the vendor or whoever sent it to you lied on the package about its true value, they will either guess or check the true value and charge VAT onit.

Bringing stuff into the UK has become hard and ATM not really worth it
