Collecting import duties in checkout

Hi everyone,

 

We upgraded to Shopify - Advanced to, besides other benefits, collect import duties in the checkout.

 

Upon setting it up, it looks like we need to also collect taxes in those countries since the "Duties" section in checkout always shows zero.

 

Does that mean we will need to register a Tax number in any country where we want to collect import duties?

Considering the costs of registering a tax number in all the countries we ship to, and the cost of filing tax returns, it doesn't seem like a profitable project, but I might be wrong.

 

We don't meet the sales threshold in any of the countries we ship to that are out of the EU.

 

Important to note: we're based in the Netherlands and have an OSS NL VAT number.

 

Does anyone have experience with this? Do we have to register a tax number in any country where we want to collect import duties so the customers get a DDP shipment?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Regards,
Marija
