Shipping to Switzerland

Important information for customers from Switzerland

As a customer from Switzerland, you have two delivery options:

  1. Have the item delivered to a German address.

    When importing into Switzerland, the German VAT can be refunded. All you have to do is confirm the export and purchase certificate for sales tax purposes for non-commercial travel (Section 6 Para. 3a UStG) and send us a copy by email. We will then refund the corresponding VAT.

  2. Have items delivered directly to Switzerland.

    - In this case, German VAT (currently 19%) is waived from the start.

    - The invoice is issued net without adding VAT.

    - The purchase will be made in Swiss francs.

    - Prices are rounded up based on the current exchange rate from euros to Swiss francs.

    - Customs duties and import taxes may apply (customs fees approx. 4% and import taxes between 3% and 8%) on the final price. The final price is the price including shipping costs. For example, if goods worth 100 CHF are purchased with shipping costs of 16 CHF, the final price is 116 CHF. The fees then apply to this. DHL will issue a payment confirmation as proof.

    If you are unsure, we recommend checking with customs or tax authorities for details before ordering.
    (Since the German VAT is spared, you still save.)
Note on exemption from import tax:
Some goods are exempt from import tax. This applies in particular to the import of items in small quantities, of low value or with a small amount of tax, certain works of art, certain duty-free goods or items that are declared tax-free by international treaties. The items to which this regulation applies are listed in Article 53 of the Value Added Tax Act (MWSTG) .
