Once all the formalities have been completed in your country of residence, you will need to declare your goods to the Swiss authorities. You will need to fill out a customs clearance form, which is available from a Swiss customs office.
Customs tax and duty
The situation is different if you have acquired your goods less than six months to the day before you settle on Swiss territory, i.e. before the official date certified by the Swiss immigration authorities. You will be required to pay VAT (at 7.6% as of 1 January 2001) on the value of the works. It is best to provide an invoice or an appraisal to calculate the amount owing. If, in fact, you are unable to provide such documents, the customs agency will call upon the services of an expert - at your cost.
