The duty tax import calculator is suitable for calculating duty tax and value added tax (VAT) for products imported from a country outside the European Union to a European member state. The calculator is also usable as a general purpose currency converter.
All products that are bought in member states of the European Union (EU) are exempt of duty taxes and value added taxes (the VAT is already paid for in the EU-country you bought the product). For a number of European countries that aren't member of the European Union, such as Switzerland and Norway, there are certain exceptions. Products imported from these countries that are accompanied with a EUR.1 certificate are exempt duty taxes and value added tax. The EU also has treaties with certain non-European countries that are members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA). Products imported from these countries are eligible for reduced duty and/or value added taxes. Again, these reduced tarrifs are usually only applicable if the products are accompanied with certificates that provide proof the products were produced in the country from which the product were sent.
