Hi! I hope someone can help clarify?
I imported a steel bicycle frame from Japan. It included a headset and no bottom bracket.
I was charged import duty at 14% so I understand it was calculated under the commodity code 8712003090 - “Bicycles and other cycles (including delivery tricycles), not motorised - Bicycles with ball bearings - Other”
However, I wondered if I could dispute it as it’s not a full bicycle and only the frame and headset (although the headset does have small bearings…), I thought it would fall under the commodity code 8714911039 - “Parts and accessories of vehicles of headings 8711 to 8713 - Frames and forks, and parts thereof - Painted, anodised, polished and/or lacquered”
Also, the invoice from the seller only states “Bicycle”. (It was not possible to get them to state “Bicycle Frame”)
Thanks and looking forward to receiving your answers.
