Our Environmental Policy:
At Goods Japan we strive to be as green as possible when it comes to the environment. Our goal is, wherever possible, to:
Challenge suppliers to reduce their environmental impact,
Recycle packaging material,
Reduce our emission impact and carbon footprint,
Engage our customers in ways that are environmentally friendly.
In the interests of this we ask our suppliers not to use excessive packaging and to meet or exceed the environmental guidelines in the manufacture of their products. We also ask that items use the least possible packaging material. For our part, we endeavour to use the least amount of packaging materials and seek out recycled and unbleached paper products with the minimal amount of artificial packing material. Suppliers are asked to source humanely slaughtered and environmentally friendly animal products.
Please be assured that Japan has some of the most stringent environmental laws on the planet when it comes to waste management, emissions and manufacturing, so you can be rest easy in the knowledge that the products you buy at Goods Japan have sound environmental credentials.
Duties and Taxes:
Please note import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the price of our items. These additional costs vary depending on the destination country of the order and are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what, if any, these additional costs will be prior to making your purchase. These additional costs are usually comparable to the sales taxes and import duties you would pay for imported items in any bricks and mortar shop in your destination country. Some countries may have an import duty tax threshold, items with a value below this threshold may not be subject to tax, therefore staggering your purchases so they are shipped separately may reduce these additional costs. However, as we are unable to offer advice about duties and taxes, we cannot offer any guarantees in this regards and recommend you check with your tax office for more information.
We do not offer any service that can pre-pay customs fees, as the cost of these services often far exceed the actual cost of additional fees charged.
Please note, owing to heavy penalties for commercial fraud, we are unable to declare a lower value or mark items as 'gifts' on custom declaration forms or invoices.
