Did you ask the shop why such a high mark up if you know how much it should cost? I don't know the situation there and unless someone is from there, how would we know? Are there any other vat or duties
Be interesting to know if there are duties for a "company" importing stuff, cos AS I SAID you don't pay a lot of duties when customs decides to charge you (FedExcrement charges $25 every time for "duties" regardless of what I have to pay customs; actual customs duties are less) and AS I SAID sales tax is 10%. EDIT: I'm wrong, consumption tax (aka VAT, GST, etc) is still at 5% . . . going up to 10% in 2015.

No shit, Sherlock. We're talking about RRP not wholesale.

Who's asking for help? I'm just having a moan.
