When do I have to pay duty and VAT?
Duty and VAT become due at the time your goods are declared to Customs; this will normally happen soon after the goods arrive in the EU.
In most cases taxes would be paid on your behalf by the freight agent handling your shipment, who will then bill these charges on to you.
