Here it is people !
It’s official, BundleTech are now the proud holders of, what we understand to be, the first legally binding tariff ruling (BTI) confirming the EU classification of the Apple iPad. What’s more, we’ve successfully secured the more favorable code, and are delighted to announce that the iPad may therefore be imported duty free into the EU (don’t forget, Import VAT is due at the standard rate applicable in the country of import – sadly there’s nothing we can do to influence that !).
With all the deliberation and sleepless nights, it’s been a challenging few weeks, however we are very pleased with the outcome, and our thanks go out to the Customs Tariff Classification team in Southend for processing our ruling application with such expedience.
Indeed, Friday 12th March marks the first day that the WiFi version of Apple’s “magical and revolutionary product” is available to pre-order from their on-line store in readiness for the 3rd April launch, so it’s particularly pleasing to have beaten the clock and have everything in place. Our categories database has been updated with the iPad tax rates – we’re ready….bring it on !
More exciting information will follow shortly, so stay tuned.
