Hallo und willkommen,

du must auf DF Sachen leider den Einfuhrabgabesatz in Höhe des gültgen Umsatzsteuersatzes zahlen (19%).
Dazu kommen ggf noch Gebühren. am besten du deklarierst es selbst und versuchst es in Zollkategorie
"Gesellschaftsspiel" unterzubringen, da werden keine weiteren Gebühren fällig
(Modellbau z.b. hat zuzüglich 4,5% Gebühren).
Um die 19% kommst du nicht drumherum, die Gesamtabgaben belaufen sich leider immer auf das Brutto
der Sendung, d.h. du musst auch auf den Versand die Abgaben zahlen.


Sorry guys, but in German its more easy to clarify about german customs.

Greetings
Tobias

oh... thats not good... :(((..... to much for me if i had to pay 19% tax to 550 Euro for the DF-Stuff.... :-(

After a few minor disasters, I finally got my Feb Order with two shiny new MBSs! Definitely worth the wait, though hopefully things will go a bit smoother.

To be fair, for the most part, it wasn't DF's fault. There was a delay of about a week at DF central, but once that was cleared up it took about a week to get to Blighty, three days in customs. About a week for me to get together the VAT and another week for me get frustrated at Parcelforce's repeated failure to communicate with one another and go get it myself!

The general upshot of which as a guide to all those wishing to order from the UK, if it all goes well you are probably looking at one or two weeks to wait. Not too bad at all. Just remember not to drink the money you have put aside for VAT (17.5% + £13.50 admin fee) and be prepared to keep an eye on the Parcelforce website and shout at them. I don't know if Manchester is typical or particularly bad, but of the six people who turned up with their notification letters this morning, when I was there, only two of us actually got to go home with a prize (i.e our mail!!!) One of the great things though, is the tracking number DF give you can be tracked through the Parcelforce website in the once it comes of the boat, plane, canoe, sea turtle, winged giraffe or however it comes over.

One observation on the singles I bought, the newer ones come in, comparatively, huge boxes. It's good, 'cos you get loads of bubblewrap to protect the items but not so good for safe storage. It's no biggie as I am planning on getting some balsa foam and making up some storage trays as I now have enough singles to fill a "room set" sized box with NO packing material! I really love the MBS though, it's a gorgeous set. I'd love for DF to "reverse engineer" some doors in a smiliar style for the classic dungeon, as these are much nicer.

I'm 'no longer' from Frankfurt - but my parents still live there and I visit them regularily. Actually - it's Oberursel - first stop on the U3 outside Frankfurt (well - not sure if they finally added another stop at the Krebsmuehle).

I already have my 2 DOE Roomsets as well as 2 MBS expansions on order. But there might be chances in the future to get something combined - especially if it isn't urgent. The worst is - you want one or two extra individual pieces before they run out - but don't want a full order.

Where in 'Frankfurt' do you come from.

I live in Dietzenbach, a town 10km to the south.
I know Oberursel, because i work in Bad Homburg, a town near Oberursel. Maybe we can combine an order in the future. That would be nice. :)
