    It does not seem logical/fair to me that on a trade, someone should have to pay full value on an incoming instrument. Obviously they already paid tax once on the instrument they are trading. But, such is life in the world today! Even though I try to avoid complaining, knowing it doesn't provide a solution, it feels good in this instance!

    We should always try to be fair, but not expect fairness. If we do, we are likely to be dissapointed. At least this injustice is minor in the scheme of things.

    Yes my KoAloha does have a Rosewood fretboard.
    thats gonna cause a problem isn’t it....
    Recent CITES policy requires a few hoops to jump through and $$$ to move rosewood across borders. As far as I know, and to oversimplify, anything with any kind of rosewood must have it's own passport or certificate. 45 - 90 days processing time is what they promise but . . .

    Good luck.

    I'm wondering what happens if you buy a product overseas, and it needs to be sent back for repairs. Would you pay VAT a second time when you get the repaired/replacement item back?
    Playing sopranos: 1920s Lyon&Healy (mahogany, D), Black Bear (koa, C), Famous FS-5G (lam. koa, D), tenor: Barron River (cypress, Bb), guitar: Alvarez AP70 (spruce).

    No. Items marked as repairs are VAT free. But you do need to prove it e.g. correspondence/invoice for repair etc. Been there.
