Good if your in us,anyone else,Canadian,Europe,chronicle for some reason make sure you pay the highest harmonezided code,so you pay the biggest possible customs tax,not sure why,when sideshow ,pcs,are applying now 9703.... and they produce in the thousands,not like chronicle in the hundreds...very odd and not helpful to collectors,doesn't cost them anything to add this code on the invoice...but they explained to me they don't want to...just thought I let fellow collectors know...

I will look into this today, we are not penalizing collectors, we do have a set of rules to follow regarding shipping our items.

If we are doing something wrong, I will post back my findings.

We are using the correct code by using 9503 as the HS Tariff Code. This code is for reduced-scale models. https://www.trade-tariff.service.gov.../headings/9503

The UK customers are asking us to use 9703 as the HS Tariff Code. This excludes them from VAT tax because it is specifically designed for original statuary of a non-commercial nature. https://www.trade-tariff.service.gov...ff/chapters/97. This specifically states: "3. Heading 9703 does not apply to mass-produced reproductions or works of conventional craftsmanship of a commercial character, even if these articles are designed or created by artists."

Thanks...but then why are sideshow and pcs using this code now?i find it very odd,are you allowed or not to use it?because sideshow produces in the thousands ,exp:
Superman 5000 limited edition,code aplied 9703.
So why should people outside of USA pay more?and if what you say is correct why are ....
U.K. Customs issuing refunds and changing the code back to 9703 the collectebles ?if you don't belive check the the forum sideshow vat customs...and pcs as well,this is a big topic,not just for U.K.,im from Spain .anyway...
Unfortunately I will niot be shopping with you guys again,I cannot afford 20% extra tax ,I enjoyed my purchases,but they were the last,I will try to claim my money back,and post my outcome.

Probably because they are using it incorrectly :P

Also isn't the thread in SS section about using 9503 anyways?
