海外移住と引越 荷物への課税

船便にかけられた税金を取り返せ!!! というブログを目にして、送った荷物にどれくらいの税金がかかるのか不安になってきました…
クロネコヤマトの海外引越便の説明によると、新品と判断されるもの(例:食品、化粧品、家電製品など)は課税の対象になるとのこと。C3フォーム という書類に、使用した期間が半年以内で新品の品物を記載する欄がありますので、ここに記載した品物に対して課税されるのだと思います。

引越に伴う荷物に対する税の免除については、以下に記載されています。

Can I get relief from duty and tax on transfer of residence?

Yes. You can bring in your belongings or vehicle free of duty and tax so long as you:

  • are moving your normal home to the EC
  • have had your normal home outside the EC for a continuous period of at least 12 months
  • have possessed and used them for at least 6 months outside the EC before they are imported
  • did not get them under a duty/tax free scheme (but see paragraph 5.2)
  • declare them to us as explained in paragraph 3.2
  • will keep them for your personal use
  • do not sell, lend, hire out or otherwise dispose of them in the EC within 12 months of importation, unless you notify us first and pay duty and VAT on disposal. Our hepline can tell you how to do this

Belongings include clothing, furniture, portable tools of trade, pets and other household and personal effects, but not alcoholic drinks or tobacco products: you will not get relief on those unless they travel in with you and qualify for the duty-free allowances – see paragraph 2.1.

We will normally waive the second and third conditions if you could not meet them due to circumstances beyond your control. Explain the position to our officer when you declare your belongings or vehicle.

そうは言っても、上記のブログのように何かの手違いで課税されることもあると思います。何事もなく荷物を受け取ることができるよう祈るばかりです。
