How much tax is applied to Fairphone products?

We sell Fairphone products throughout Europe, so different tax rates are applicable. The prices of our products are a flat rate, so the price including VAT is the same for all EU countries.

You can see the VAT applicable for your country on the order confirmation you receive by mail.

  • All charges are gross prices and include the current rate VAT depending on the country of your purchase.
  • Shipping and other charges, such as import taxes will depend on the value of your order and the country to which the product is being shipped.
  • Any customs duties or tariffs that may be imposed on the deliveries when entering your country, are to be paid by you.



There are three exceptions: Switzerland, Norway and the UK. When a shipping address is in one of these non-EU countries, VAT is not added.

Local (import) taxes may apply though, so consult your local customs office and this UPS page.

Also take in account that shipping agencies also require administrative costs for importing from EU countries. They will be higher if you opt for fast delivery.


Please note

  • Our services have a tax at the Dutch rate of 21 VAT%, because we are a Dutch company
  • Different payment and shipping costs will determine the final price of your order when you check out in our online shop.
  • It is not possible for us to assess in advance how much the administrative costs and customs tax will be for your situation, as that differs per country and depends on the items in your order.
    • Norwegian customs have a handy customs calculator (which do not calculate UPS administrative costs for importing)
    • The Swiss Federal Council has more info about this subject on their website.
  • Please read more on additional customs duties and taxes on the UPS website for your country.
