Import and Taxes

When you buy a product from a country that is not a member of the European Union (EU), you become a de facto importer and must pay customs and excise duties, as well as value added tax (VAT) . Unless otherwise stated in the conditions of sale, when entering the territory of your country, the goods will normally be held by the customs authorities until the payment of customs and excise duties.



Customs officers examine parcels from outside the EU in order to:


to verify the presence or absence of prohibited or restricted goods (such as drugs);

to confirm that the description and value indicated on the customs declaration are correct;

check the customs declaration to determine if customs and excise duties and/or import VAT are due.



Until now, the import tax only applied to products with a value greater than 22 euros. This exemption ends on July 1. All products imported from countries outside the European Union will be subject to 20% VAT.


This European directive voted in 2017 has just been transposed into French law. Initially provided for products whose value exceeded 22 euros, this import tax will now apply to all products.


This tax will be collected directly from the consumer at the time of purchase of the product or it will be up to the delivery person (La Poste for example) to collect the tax from the consumer via “management fees”.
