Taxes And Tariffs
Please note that you, the buyer, are responsible for any VAT, tariff, duty, taxes, handling fees, customs clearance charges, etc. required by your country for importing consumer goods. We do not collect this beforehand, and can’t give you an estimate of the cost, because it varies widely around the world. Please do your research so you’re ready to get your package cleared through customs, and have an idea of what the additional cost will be.
1 Do I Need To Pay Import Taxes And Tariffs?
Many countries do not charge import duties on private items below a certain stated value. However, you may find that you have to pay taxes when goods you’ve ordered from us arrive in your country.
Electronic items are the most commonly taxed items. If you are ordering a phone, or tablet we strongly recommend you to check.
Geeetech cannot give you advice or information about tax rates and customs charges in your country.
We advise you to find out about the local regulations prior to ordering from us. You can also request a low value declaration to help avoid any taxes.
Note: Please note that ALL import taxes / duties are the buyer’s responsibility.

Special requests can be made by explaining the situation using the online comments box during the checkout process.

If your order value is large, or contains many items, or certain electronic items it is not possible to declare the order as low value.
5 Why I Was Asked For My CNPJ/CPF?
Companies importing anything to Brazil are supposed to state their "CNPJ" number, and individuals are supposed to state their "CPF" number on invoices.
So if you want us to ship your order to Brazil, please make sure you give us the correct "CNPJ" or "CPF" number, so the package can go through customs smoothly.
