This is potentially very good news for EZ-Robot purchasers based in the EU. If approved by the EU parliaments and Germany almost all customs tariffs will be eliminated and markets for services will be opened up.
So fingers crossed I wont have to pay additional custom charges on my EZ-Robot orders

I know I won't make any friends with this statement but, I for one, think we should be taxed higher so we can improve social services like health care and law inforcement. We'd acttually get health care instead of being legally required to aquire it or face a penalty. I think its safe to say that we all would have been carrying insurance if we could afford it. I currently can not afford any of these "affordable health plans" until affordable equals free or I find a better job.
Sorry to drift but, being the money hungry nation we are, I just don't see us letting anything into the country with out paying the cover charge. I hope I'm wrong but, greed usually wins out here in the good ol' U S of A.
We don't pay Duty on EZ-B products. Anything which does not have an equivalent being made in the US doesn't get import duties. The US considers duties to be protectionist, not revenue.
So, you pay it on cars, but not on most electronics.
1) even if we could calculate the expected taxes on import, we would have to increase product cost. As is,
We can keep the product cost lower because not everyone gets taxed - some sneak under the radar
2) we have been looking into logistic drop ship located within countries. That would remove the taxes for you. But, it would drive the price up nexause we would have to pay tax on every item we import
3) obviously we looked into manufafturing in the USA. However, there is very very little profit margin on our product that's being manufactured in china - so you can imagine how much the msrp would be if we manufactured in USA! Nearly twice as much.
Some other tech companies advertise that they manufacture in USA. And I applaud and wish we could as well. However, their products are much cheaper to manufacture and have a very high profit margin still.
