Autonomic regions within the European Union

If you receive a parcel from a member state of the EU, there is no need for you to pay VAT or customs duty. Yet, at the same time, you have to be prepared for dealing with one of the numerous autonomic regions inside different countries of the EU, like for example the Channel Islands in Great Britain and Aland in Finland, in which case VAT will be added in very much the same way it is done with consignments coming from third countries.

Also for the sending of parcels to these autonomic regions, the same customs procedures which apply for destination countries outside of the European Union need to be followed.

It does not make a difference, from which country you buy your goods from an internet shop, what counts is from which country the consignment is sent to you. For example, if you bought your merchandise from an internet shop with a .uk ending, whose operating enterprise, however, is registered on the Channel Islands, then you will still have to pay VAT upon the receipt of the parcel, if its value exceeds 21.98 Euros.
