Basically if u buy $950 worth of tyres for example, and then add shipping, then no taxes or duties, even tho ur over $1000. the goods themselves were t over $1000. If u buy $1010 worth of tyres, then the duties apply to tyres and shipping, but on some occasions customs don't check it, they have literally thousands of items to thru and can't check everything.

P&H is included unfortunately! (you pay duty on the subtotal, cost of the goods and the p&H)

Edit: sometimes it slips through customs no charge
Mine slipped through customs last time
