This is a useful tool which allows you to calculate any duties and taxes which may be payable when shipping internationally.

You can also find minimum thresholds for European countries here:

These are the thresholds for importing into UK.



I have been trying to find the same for USA and have failed.  Anyone know where to point me?

Found it:

http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/trade/basic_trade/internet_purchases.xml

The important bit:

Packages whose declared value is under $200 ($100 if being sent as a gift to someone other than the purchaser) will generally be cleared without any additional paperwork prepared by CBP. However, CBP always reserves the right to require a formal entry for any importation and generally exercises this option if there is something unusual about the importation, or if important documents such as an invoice or bill of sale do not accompany the item.
