What are you importing?
There is Import Duty and then VAT.
(((Price + Shipping) * Import Duty)* VAT)
Though if you have owned something for long enough exemptions apply.

basicly , i bought a pair of hockey gloves

$70 shipped ( good offer on tour H10's) thats abt 37

had an invoice from fedex the other day for 21 for duty and charges, 14.24 of that is EU VAt the rest is admin charges.

I think they got the and $ crossed coz i thought it should be abt 10.

just gone through the invoice again..........

Goods + shipping = $70
VAT value ajustment 7.19
then theve added them together to get 77.94 and given it a vat value of 85.13
then taxed on that amount

the $70 should be changed to then add the value ajustment then taxed.

so it would be abt 44 = 7.70 import tax.

Anybody get this?

Plus about GBP10 admin fees? Usually.
The Fed Ex invoices usually show the exchange rate in the calculation details.
If it is Fed Ex call them up and ask for an explanation of the bill. You could well be right.
