otari:NZtechfreak:TheUngeek: Still get charged gst with royal mail. IMO you should expect it
You?may not?get charged GST, but I agree you should expect it and plan for it.
Oh agreed, I was ready to pay it if necessary. But with DHL you will *always* have to pay, and with Royal mail you may not. That said, I think DHL do scan it once more than the Post does while it's en route, so that's something.
It was interesting, the customs form from Clove listed the value as "400" (no denomination indicated) and the contents as "USB Device" - so those may have helped.
I must be one of those unlucky ones. Arrived in NZ from Clove late Thursday, by late Friday customs decided that some tax is due. Now have to wait until Monday to settle it (they don't on-charge) and hopefully collect it. Wish I shipped in using Fedex.
