Hi Thunderhead, I have brought it archery gear several times in the past and paid import VAT only, no import duty.

The import VAT is calculated by adding 10% to the rand cost to arrive at the customs value times 14%.

It is levied by the Post Office but the last time I used a courier company and was not charged VAT.
