Europe - Japan, create free trade zone!

Is it me, or did this deal just make it so everybody in europe can buy stuff from Japan without having to worry about customs?

"The EU will eliminate tariffs on 99 percent of imports from Japan."

What about VAT? Still have to pay VAT, right?

I wonder how that news would affect EXA Arcadia and other arcade businesses that want to distribute products to Europe.

Shou (Time) should know this.

Yeah. Doesn't look like this will have any impact on typical private imports. It's getting rid of tariffs on many categories of goods, but it's not a completely free zone like the EU

I've never paid customs duty on anything I've ever imported (cabs, PCBs, stools).
