    Receiving a valuable pack from the UK. I have never had to pay duty before but this package is worth over 3k. Will I be subject to duty or any other fees?

    What's the shipping method i.e. postal service, Fedex, etc?

    The whole catch here is the over $3K value of the item. If the shipper "accidentially" declared a lower value, it should get through fine. But over $2K and it may be held up for formal entry, which means you'd need to file some paperwork or hire a customs broker.

    But a commercial service like Fedex will take care of that for you, which is why I asked shipping method.

    As far as a duty fee goes, maybe. Depends on what the item is. It really takes an expert to figure that out; the list is long and complicated.

    If it was going the other way, you'd be looking at fees around $700...
