Determine Duties and Taxes

It is important to consider the effects of duties, taxes, port handling fees and other customs charges when determining your shipment's total shipping charges. Depending on the content of your shipment and the destination country, customs charges will affect the price the recipient is willing to pay for your product. Being able to calculate and communicate the "landed" cost up-front can often save both you and the recipient valuable time and money.

Almost all shipments crossing international borders are subject to the assessment of duties and taxes imposed by the importing country's government. Duties and taxes are imposed to generate revenue, protect local industries against foreign competition or both. In some countries, duties and taxes must be paid before the goods are released from customs. A shipment's duty and tax amount may be based on:

Product value

Trade agreements

Country of manufacture

Use of the product

The product's Harmonized System (HS) code


Customs officials assess duties and taxes based on information provided on the air waybill, the Commercial Invoice and other relevant documents.
