Customs & VAT Overview
Calculating the value of your parcel for VAT purposes is different than adding the value of your parcel contents during the booking process. In the booking process, the value you enter relates only to the contents of the parcel.
You're sending a £10 book to a friend in Germany as a gift. You enter £10 as the value of your parcel contents in the 'My Parcel Details' section of the booking process.
