That’s the question, isn’t it? We all don’t want to end up being chased by the guv’ment because we didn’t pay our dues, right? We have to give to Caesar what is Caesar’s.

Anyway, for those of you who are now looking at buying wholesale electronics from China, here’s great news: For now, most China-based wholesale consumer electronics supplier aren’t charging any VAT, other taxes or any other hidden charges at all. Zero. Nada. So, what do they charge you? Just pay them what you see on your computer screens when you checked your items out which, of course, includes shipping charges which are very minimal (and at least say “Thank you� in your heart for their wonderful service).

But hold your horses! Your supplier doesn’t charge you any taxes, yes, but depending on your country’s tax regulations you might pay up for some custom duties. Yup, that’s one of life’s hard facts. But, hey, don’t lose sleep! Do these quick and easy but very necessary steps to learn how to deal with tax matters when importing to save you time and money:

• Do your homework. Do a research on your country’s tax regulations on imported goods. Don’t guess.
• Take time out to contact the right government agency that handles these concerns and remember to talk to the right person in that agency.
• Contact your supplier and ask if they have special arrangements to help you minimize your taxes (or even eliminate them altogether).
• Outline your special instructions for your suppliers concerning disclosure of amounts or value of the goods and they will be more than glad to assist you with these matters.

Remember, your suppliers are from foreign lands. They won’t know how to deal with your tax situations until you fill them in on what’s up with your country’s tax regulations.

    I operate in the USA and have not had to pay any import taxes. I have declared prices from 10 dollars to 170 dollars and still no taxes. Keep up the good work Chinavasion. Your impressive inventory is no match compared to the boring United States electronics. These products I show to my fellow Americans just blow their minds.
