- Import duties on warranty replacements from the USA

No there shouldn’t but it’s a known tax/duty avoidance technique, mark a parcel as ‘warranty replacement’ to avoid it.
Hence why when Parcelforce pay it on your behalf, you have to pay them to release the parcel & then you can submit a claim to get the money refunded.
This applies to non EU countries. There may be example where people have slipped through, but in general, this is how it’s supposed to work…Posted 4 years agoantigeeMember
as said marking invoices as “warranty returns” or “samples no value” etc is a popular tax/duty avoidance ruse so whoever “enters” the import will usually ignore – only way to get it coded as no vat/no duty is to email copy your original purchase invoice and vat/duty payment copy to whoever is doing the shipping invoice – proper commercial invoices in triplicate not a few boxes on dhl’s paperwork and have them state in big letters across it “Replacement under warranty – see attached” – it might just work depends on how the agent decides to enter itPosted 4 years ago
