Default What would be the tariff classification of an FPGA development board?

I was wondering what's the tariff classification of an FPGA development
board.
Searching through some documentations, I ended up thinking that it may
be this:

8542.70.00 or Electronic microassembly.

Any person around here knows what it might be. This call specially goes
to ppl who are exporting to the EU.

Many thanks
Jacques

I let my stuff be shipped under 8537. None ever
cared. I guess they have certain triggers on
agriculture, fishery, iron, you name them. Where
subsidies protect closed markets. The rest is
not worth checking except for value, the VAT value.

I once wanted to get an export paper for stuff I
transported by car and thus sent a piece of alu
sheet metal with a tag and a part number as dummy.
Together with valid invoice and customs papers.
They, the customs, called me and complained that
the stated 600$ for this alu were not real. And
I replied that they don't have to care as long
as the customer pays for it.

I just got a shipment from digikey. Some TTL-ICs, PICs, Flash,
resistors, capacitors, etc...
I only had to pay the VAT on everything except the ceramic oscillators.
There was 3.7% tariff on the oscillators.
That was a shipment from the USA to the EU a few weks ago.

Hi Philipp,

>From what i've read, a VAT price would already include tariff, but the

oscillators might be VAT exempted, but still with tariff. Was it
written explicitly on the invoice that tariff was applied?

I got the components first, a few days later I received an invoide from
customs.
It says they estimated the value (invoice value - estimated fraction of
shipment costs) of the oscillators to be 41.45 . On this value there
was a tariff of 3.7%.
It says the value for VAT calculation (invoice value + tariff) is 48.38
. On this value there was a VAT of 16%.

So I had to pay both tariff and VAT for the oscillators, but VAT only
for the rest.
