Hi everybody, I have recently purchased a package from ASOS.com in the UK and upon it arriving in Vietnam I have been whacked with a hefty tax charge. Is is only clothing and shoes and they are not designer labels just some standard non branded clothing probably made in Bangladesh. Can you please let me know if this is normal as to total tax bill is approx 35% of the declarable value Total declarable value approx - $ 7.117 M VND Import duties and tax - $1.606 M VND (23%) VAT - $887 k VND (12%) I have asked the import clearance office for a breakdown of the import duties and tax as i think it is too high for the goods I am purchasing. Any info would be much appreciated! Thanks, Justin
