    Hello ,
    I intend to ship some supplements to Armenia and maybe they will charge custom and maybe not .
    What I need to know that If they DONT charge custom they will charge VAT or not ?
    I mean What is the relationship between custom and VAT ?

    VAT is an international tax number, in my country it's locally called BTW and in your country it has a different name too.

    Customs are import costs.

    What kind of items you want to import?

    No it works differently. I assume the company that you ordering with requires a VAT number, only registered businesses get that number so they can write of their xx% tax that they charge you with.

    If customs intercept your package which they probably will because you will probably order in bulk they charge import tax which goes to your country.

    You need to know armenian laws.
    In EU, if value of your shipment exceeds certain value, you have to pay VAT. If the value is even higher, they charge you custom fees + VAT.
    Parcels marked as gift are free from VAT and custom fees.

    As Armenia isn't part of EU, you need to do your study.
