Customs and VAT
When you buy a product through SENDON from a non-EU country such as the UK, USA and Hong Kong, then you effectively become an importer and you are liable to Customs and Excise Duty as well as Value Added Tax (VAT) payments.
Malta Customs officers examine the SEONDON packages arriving from outside the EU in order to:
a. Check for prohibited or restricted goods,
b. Confirm that the description and value stated on the Customs Declaration is correct and
c. Check the Customs Declaration to determine if Customs Duty, Excise Duty and/or Import VAT are chargeable
