Duties and Taxes
We ship from Canada with our choice of carrier – Post or Courier. All customs paperwork and brokerage fees, if applicable, are looked after by us. Import duties and taxes, although rarely applicable, are your responsibility and vary by country. Many countries, like the USA and Australia allow you to import used books duty and tax-free, in small quantities. You should check with your own country’s Customs Department or post office for the rules on VAT and Duty if you are not sure. Some countries have limits on the value of goods you can import Duty and Tax free. Secret Storage Books cannot be responsible for those charges should they apply.
UK: If shipped by Post, goods often pass VAT free. If shipped by Express Courier, you will likely need to pay for VAT plus a service fee. I don't make the rules!!
