Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did the US company say they would pay import duties and taxes?Alex
Ok - in that case its bad news. If you import something into the country then it is your responsibility to make sure all the duties, VAT and taxes are paid.
Therefore in this case, its down to you and yes you are liable to pay these fees.
Unless the agreement with the company in the USA says they will cover it, then you are liable.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
