Taxes and Currency

Currency: Prices on our web site are in EURO currency (use google to convert to your currency).

Please note: our system automatically recognize in which country you are, for example if you are in Spain the web site upper right hand corner will show the Spanish flag for the country (which means you are in Spain) and the English flag for the language (sorry right now this web site is only available in two languages). If you are in a different country please change it by clicking over the flag.

Taxes: web site shows prices tax excluded or included depending in which country you are or which country you choose as final destination:

  • European Union Countries: our web site prices are tax included.
  • Outside European Union Countries: our web site prices are tax excluded.

For example if you are in UK, France, Spain etc (one of the UE countries) you will see and pay tax included prices.
Otherwise if you are in US, Switzerland, Norway, Australia etc (outside UE) you will see and pay tax excluded prices.
So outside EU citizens pay less than EU citizens? Absolutely No! Outside EU citizens pay Carpi Moto the price without taxes but will pay to the courier, at the delivery, their own country custom duties and value-added taxes; final price could be more less or equal, this depends on every country import policy.

Invoice: every order we ship outside Italy is billed, you will receive the invoice by email the day we ship.
Invoice is billed using data filled in the "billing address fields". Please note that after invoice is drawn, no correction to the billing address could be done.

Invoice Value, many customers from Turkey, Brazil, Thailand etc ask us to undervalue the invoice: our courier need to clear the right amount you pay because the invoice we bill to you has to be cleared by the Italian Custom Office, therefore declaring a lower value is considered a tax fraud, also if a parcel would be damaged during flight the courier would refund you only for the declared value. Please don't ask us to undervalue, our answer will be always NO.
If you have any doubt about duties and VAT please check your own country custom office web site. Please Note: in most countries DHL or Fedex act directly as custom agents. To avoid Documental fees (which are not included in our site shipping costs), please contact DHL or Fedex before parcel will be cleared by customs. Swiss customers: to avoid DHL or Fedex account management fee (about CHF 19) please notify the courier your PCD account (google "Swiss customs CSP" , the first link explain how it works).
