This is the first time I am sending off hats and squares. Labels have been printed off, but I am unsure where I complete the following. Is this done at the Post Office? Please advise.
Many thanks and regards
Fill in the customs declaration, listing 0 or I as the value. Anything more incurs duties***
Thank you for your upcoming parcel for Knit A Square. :))
The customs note you can do at the post office, but please declare everything that is in your parcel as 'knitted squares for charity'....and put a zero value on the customs form, or a pound if your post office won't allow you to put zero. Please don't declare the hats as being hats, as they will then be classed as a 'commercial product' and Ronda will find herself paying fees when they arrive in South Africa. I know that may seem a little dishonest, but Ronda doesn't sell the hats, so it seems wrong for the posties to charge customs when they are for charity. :((
I hope this clears it up for you. :))
Thanks for the info, Joan. My post office can be a bit 'picky'....they won't even let me put a zero value, even though some members from the eastern states of Oz can, so I try not to give them any excuse to make it more difficult....lol.
