IMPORT TAXES or DUTIES
If you are Outside UK/EU, your country may impose an import tax to be paid and the package held before delivery, this varies and you should estimate the taxes yourself or ask me to. for example, USA/Canada generally under $100 exempt, over that 10% or exempt. Australia is particularly harsh. The HS number is usually 8407290020 "Marine Propulsion Engines, Other" .
