Need help for the parcel send to Estonia

That depends on Malaysian laws. There's no tax for sending something _out_ of the country.

Hi Lusikas,

Thanks for the advise. There's no tax for sending goods to other country. My main concern is the VAT in Estonia upon the goods arrive. Thanks

Kind regards

It depends on the goods and the delivery method. If you use a courier they will ask for documentary evidence to establish the value of the goods, and what they are. Customs will then decide any duty and tax to pay, which the courier will recover from the recipient (plus handling charge) before the goods can be delivered.

If you use the postal service there is a chance that the parcel will not be opened, but it is a small one.

The duty depends on the items, but VAT is 20% and, unlike the UK, is charged on food items, so expect to pay around 30% of the value of the goods for all the charges applied.

My understanding is if the value is less than 21.98 Euros then VAT is not collected
