Gents. Am I correct in thinking 20% vat duty to be paid to customs if I import a guitar?
In and around yeah, so think carefully unless it's something you REALLY want and can't Get elsewhere.
There'll be some other charges from the courier/shipping company as well
I brought a guitar across around 2008 when the exchange rate was really favourable. Don't know that I'd bother again.
And be careful because if it's anything with Braz, that's going to be next to impossible to import legally, and if it goes undeclared then gets spotted, itll be confiscated.
There's also the matter of it being shipped safely. The seller has to know how to pack.
