    Myhuntingshop.com Import/Customs fees?

    Hi all,

    i'm pretty close to buying a pair of Lowa Tibet's from myhuntingshop.com but i'm just wondering about any import/customs charges upon arrival in NZ? Anyone had to pay these when buying from them?

    You should be able to buy them less the 19% VAT in Germany as a non EU customer.

    As long the shippment is under $400NZ "inclusive of freight/shipping charges" you should be OK
    That looks a good price considering our NZ$ has dropped its guts a tad last month

    What exact brand/model of Lowa ??

    There is still 10% Duty on footwear and clothing - but again if the amount below 400NZ they say it is not worth pursuing the GST and Duty - it would cost as much to do all documentation etc as what they would collect
    They also state that the “400NZ) is discretionary

    If you are a "business" like me & have to use brokers etc the minimum charges for NZ $401 or so dollars including freight goes from around $104 to $214 Kiwi by the time you include all the costs including the broker & don't forget to add 1-3 weeks + to the process it all....good times....

    So keeping stuff under $400 Kiwi is ideal

    Just had an email from myhuntingshop saying the product is out of stock but will be back in stock end of the month. They gave me the option to cancel the order or wait until they're back in stock. Gonna wait. Bit annoying though it shouldn't let you pay for them if they're not in stock.
