Europe/EU import duties/taxes ? - 46enip - 05-18-2020

Hello current and future European PinebookPro owners, I would appreciate if you share
how much were the import  duties/taxes for you. And how it is calculated:
Is it fixed amount or percentage based or combination of both ?
Optionally it would be nice to tell your country too. But totally understandable if you don't want to.

Thank you!

I live in Estonia. I had to pay roughly 60 euro. I believe it's a percentage of the total cost (laptop + shipping).

In the Netherlands you don't have to pay import duties on laptops, only VAT.
And VAT is calculated over the total price, including shipping.

I just got mine. Germany. Had to pay 56,66 € extra.

41,78 € Tax ("Einfuhrumsatzsteuer - EUSt")
12,50 € DHL Handling Fee ("Kapitalbereitstellungsprovision")
02,38 € VAT (MwSt) on the fee.
