Customs Duty and Tax Information of IHerb orders to Sweden

Starting July 1st, the EU ended the low-value consignment relief for shipments equal to or less than €22 for goods to the EU from outside the EU based on arrival date. From July 1st, based on the order date, iHerb is registered in the Import-One-Stop-Shop (IOSS) and will collect, declare, and pay the VAT to the tax authorities for distance sales of imported goods with a value not exceeding €150.

As of March 1st, 2018, Swedish Customs will collect VAT on all shipments regardless of order value. In addition, orders below €150 will be subject to a customs fee of €7.50, and orders over €150 will be subject to a customs fee of €12.50.

The good news is that all duties, taxes, and import fees are pre-collected at checkout to expedite Customs Clearance; no further payments are required at the time of delivery.
