Price for parcels from China increases
Dues to new rules for cross-border online trade between the EU and third countries, prices for parcel shipments to the EU may rise. As of July 1, shipments of goods from outside the EU are no longer exempt from import VAT. Previously they were exempt as long as the value of the goods did not exceed €22. In the future, the respective VAT rate of the EU destination will apply to every parcel arriving in the EU. Additionally, as of July 1, the threshold of €10,000 in total for the EU to incur VAT will drop.
