Yet another Epic Pine Store fail

No, the total value of the merchandise is $65.

Shipping is part of the total value of the merchandise unless the import was a service.

Import duty/taxes apply to goods AND services - the shipping was a service.

A = goods value, B = shipping value. A + B = Sub total 1.
If sub total 1 > allowance ($50) then continue, otherwise can stop now as no duty/tax is applicable.
Sub total 2 = sub total 1 with duty added (think it's 0%?)
Sub total 3 = sub total 2 with tax applied (16%)
Total amount due = (sub total 3 - sub total 1) + handling fees

The mistake being made was imagining shipping doesn't form part of the total value of merchandise - the exception is when the goods are actually services then the transportation cost component is not due duty or tax. Yes, I've read the whole thread although what you thought didn't help to make any sense of the situation. The CN22 isn't obvious as it's not on the package for DHL shipments but internally somewhere value of goods and shipping would've been itemised for the total. Plus there is often no rhyme or reason to duty/tax being applied -- when you think it ought to be applied, it isn't and vice versa. Stuff can be waived through for whatever reason without duty/tax being applied. In any case it's always better to settle first then disagree later and reclaim fees if they were really incorrect.

When I'm expecting something via DHL I never really know until practically the delivery day if duty/tax is going to be applied or not. As it happens, I've got something due today from Pine64 via DHL and so far no duty/tax seems due but still I don't know (especially with the circumstance the UK is in right now) until actually delivered.

And may be you might be on to something and the invisible CN22 wasn't itemised? I don't know 100% what's occurred here.

Itemising aside, it doesn't really change anything. The total is the total.
