New EU tax and import rules: Any plans for EU distribution?
I know it is probably a long shot but does Fasttech have any plans for shipping from inside EU now that the new EU rules for import from China is just around the corner?

I don't think it would help, if I understood it correctly.
What matters is not where the item is but where the seller is from.
If outside the EU, either the seller charges the buyer for VAT then pay the state.
Or the local postal service will charge VAT on the parcel and takes a fee.

Hello Rabundus,

We don't have the overseas warehouse in EU at present. But we can't make sure whether we will have it in future. If we have the plan, we will update here. Thank you.

Local warehouses and distribution points are usually for ease of shipping rather than avoiding local taxes. Companies have been doing it long-before the advent of eCommerce. Much easier to ship a weeks worth of orders in a shipping container or crate to (for example) a German warehouse where the individual items are then dropped into the Deutsche Bunderspost than 5000 individual packets all heading Europe's way in a multitude of sacks aboard various aircraft.
It's twelve inches long, but don't use it as a rule...

Hello carpacccio,

Our EU customers can contact us to have the duties and taxes prepaid, we will offer the IOSS number to the prepaid packages. Thank you.

It might be useful to explain this a bit more in detail (and in a more prominent place).

Or is it enough to write here in this thread (and by that contacting you): "I want to prepay taxes for all my future orders"

Thank you!
