PinePhone - VAT in order
#1
Hi,

I want to order one Pinephone but there is VAT $42 for Hongkong in my order. I'm from Czech republic from EU. Will I pay the VAT twice (Hongkong and Czech republic)? Or how does it work with VAT? I don't want to pay the VAT twice.

No, you are charged for your local VAT when Living in EU. I guess it is just an oversight, that it says Hong Kong.
#3
So the vat in the pre-order matches the one for China to HK?
I wanted to search for VAT in the forum but you can't search on less than 4 characters.
#4
No, it matches the VAT in your home country, which PINE64 will pay for you,
so you don't get a very high fee to pay it yourself.
#5
Thanks, so I really misunderstood Smile
#6
If I understood correctly, the Vat is only for who live within the UE, basically due the fact that they will ship to us the phone through a warehouse in Poland, so from the Ue they will charge the Vat on purchase, we will not pay any additional vat or importation fee.
#7
Oh, is this new? Or does only the PinePhone benefit from this "from inside EU" shipping?

Because I had to pay a lot of customs duties and DHL service charges on my Pinebook Pro order here in Portugal Sad

Yes, it's new. It was introduced in July https://www.pine64.org/2020/07/15/july-u...e-version/
