CUSTOMS DUTY & TAX information

for International Orders

(Swiss Clients do not pay any additional fees or customs duties)


 

Switzerland currently has free trade agreements with the following countries:

 

Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Chile, Colombia, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Korea Republic, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine

 

If you are ordering from one of these countries, you will profit from customs duty preferences or even a full exemption from customs duties for goods of preferential origin (those preferences refer to customs duties not to import tax. You always have to pay your national VAT upon reception of your package). All Prettie Lanes Originals are goods of preferential origin. For more detailed information on selected countries, please scroll down. You can also find more information on your national customs duty department websites. Countries not listed may calculate customs duties on your order. Any import fees are the sole responsibility of the customer.

 

Please note: The regulations and information stated solely apply to the goods of the Prettie Lanes company. If you order from other companies, regulations differ.

 

 

Please note:

 

Prettie Lanes Originals (garments, hats, belts etc.) are handmade in Switzerland and are goods of preferential origin. All necessary documents are provided/filled out and directly enclosed to your package, visible from the outside.

(Exclusion: Third-party products (i.e. bags or earrings that are or were formerly offered at the shop) may not be of preferential origin.)

 

Prettie Lanes does not take any responsibility for miscalculated import fees/taxes/customs duties as this calculation is out of Prettie Lanes hands and the sole responsibility of your national customs department. If you have the feeling that your import customs have been miscalculated, please contact your national customs department or logistics company (e.g Post) and request a detailed invoice (that is your legal right) and -if applicable- a refund. Prettie Lanes fills out all necessary and official forms for customs preferences where applicable. If you have troubles with customs duty calculations, Prettie Lanes is always happy to support you wherever possible.

 

This page is an informative page only with general information as a guideline. It solely refers to products of the Prettie Lanes company. If you order from other companies, the situation, documents needed and customs preferences can highly differ. Prettie Lanes is not able to exactly calculate your import customs due to variable methods used in different countries.
