Duties & Taxes When Importing Packages to Germany
Good news--if the cost of your total shipment is less than the German "de minimis value", you will not be required to pay taxes or duties on your package (however certain products like tobacco or liquor may be subject to special fees or taxes). If your shipment is valued above the de minimis value, you will need to pay German taxes and customs fees.
- De minimis Value for Duty: 150 EUR*
- De minimis Value for Tax: 22 EUR*
Delivery Duty Paid Options: For eligible shipments, MyUS offers the option to send shipments Delivery Duties Paid (DDP). When this service is selected in your online account, you can pay for any duties and taxes along with your shipping costs in one simple payment. This means you can pay for any applicable duties and/or taxes directly to MyUS when you submit a ship request, rather than paying them in your shipping country after they arrive. This streamlines the delivery process so you can cover all your costs in one simple payment when you ship!
As of 14 August 2019, German customs requires a purchase receipt for every item in a shipment. Please keep your invoices so you can provide them to customs or the carrier upon request. You can also upload invoices before your order arrives at MyUS under "Shop & Ship Tools > My Incoming Packages". MyUS will use the invoice to value your items and provide it to customs, if requested.
The MyUS Advantage:
We help you avoid unnecessary taxes by holding items that arrive at MyUS damaged, and help you return them to the store.
