However, we can share experience how to avoid high import duty and tax when placing order from China. Normally, if you buy products abroad, you have responsibilities to pay for the import duty and tax or VAT when the package arrive at the Custom of your country. The import duty varies from products to products and countries to countries. The tax or VAT means the internal tax when you buy from the local market and it is named internal revenue tax in some countries such as USA but named VAT in other countries, UK, for example.
There are several tips that you need to know about import duty and tax (VAT):
1.It is better to contact your local customs office or visit your local custom website for more information if you do not want to be charged customs fees.

Much more details about the import duty and tax(VAT) can be acquired from your local custom website. In most cases, the value for the duty of imitation jewelry is nil on account of the custom policy that the duty should not be charged when the total value of the products is less than a certain amount, for instance, the value for duty occur is £135 GBP in UK while $200.00 in USA. The internal tax (in USA) or VAT (in UK) should be taken into consideration for the reason that there is 20% VAT (tax) when invoice value is over 15.00 GBP in UK but zero internal tax when the value is less than $200.00 in USA
