    It's not just import duties, it's also the different VAT tax rates. In Germany, VAT for books is 7 percent, while general VAT is 19 percent. Makes a difference of 12 percent in VAT to be paid (in addition to import duties) if the packages are labelled wrong.

      @Jan: Yes, I informed Jaclyn as well, she is aware of the problem.
      @Andrew_Swallow: Bankruptcy is the right word
      @mandragora: I am sort of confused what VAT means now. If it is the German "Zollgebuehren", we don't need to pay those for books (I checked). We only need to pay "Einfuhrgebuehren". Sorry, my vocabulary is not that strong in this area.

        Hi Starstuff,

        VAT is value added tax, in German "Umsatzsteuer" or "Mehrwertsteuer". In the case of imported goods, it is called "Einfuhrumsatzsteuer".
