Re: Customs



I used to work for a company with offices in Europe and distributors in
Asia. Anything that you were going to sell was taxed but the rates were
often different for new equipment, used equipment and replacement parts.
Replacement parts were generally taxed at lower rates and if anything had to
be assembled in the foreign country you could pay the lower rate. Pieces of
an amateur station can certainly be classed as replacement parts.
