I just received a query about a set in my inventory (sealed Cloud City) but the prospective buyer is located in Germany. He asked in addition to the shipping costs, what the taxes would be as well. I've never shipped anything this big/expensive to Germany before and after an online search found some calculators which indicate that imports into Germany face a "Duty tax" and something called "VAT". Punching in some numbers the calculator indicated that Duty tax would come to 4.7% and the VAT would be 19%. For a set like this the total customs fees total a little over 200 euro!
Is this correct? I don't want to reply to the buyer with false information. If this is true this seems very excessive. Thank you for any information you may provide.
