If you are an international customer, customs duty and taxes may be charged prior to delivery. These charges may be estimated by going to www.simplyduty.com and entering your order information. Use HS Code 854370 and Incoterm "CIF."
By law, we are required to declare the full invoice value. Please do not ask us to declare a lower value or as anything other than "merchandise", as to do so is illegal.

We understand if you feel this is not fair, but this is how many governments have chosen to generate revenue or incentive local production. We don't necessarily agree with this, but it is the law.
