Taxation

The taxation for a particular country depends on the local GST/VAT, as well as the item category and its declared value.

The tax & duty threshold is the amount at which a person begins paying taxes based on the declared value of an item.


CIF: import duty and taxes are calculated based on the sum of the customs value, shipping cost and insurance.

FOB: import duty and taxes are calculated only on the customs value of the imported goods.
