Customs, Tax & Duty

When goods arrive into port they have to go through a customs clearance process in which they are registered and a duty is levied against them according to their value.  For this process to happen, there are various forms and documents that need to be completed for the shipping company, customs officials and handling agents.  MyShipper ensures that all the relevant forms are filled out correctly to ensure that your goods are cleared by customs in order for them to leave port and go on to their final destination.

Customs Clearance 

Port authorities require customs clearance for all cargo imported into the country.  This involves declaring and registering the goods on which a duty and any applicable taxes are levied against the goods.  The ‘import customs clearance’ is the term given to the process of preparing and submitting the required documents and declarations to the customs authorities. This is not the same as customs duty, which is the duty levied on the goods imported, which is normally paid directly by the recipient to the relevant customs or tax authorities.

 

Tax & Duty 

All imported goods and their values must be declared by law to the importing country’s customs office.  If an item is inaccurately described or an incorrect value is stated, customs authorities may impose penalties or in serious cases criminal proceedings.  As the importer, you have to comply and adhere to the regulations to ensure that correct information is given to officials. My Shipper ensures that all of your paperwork is correct and that the relevant information is given to ensure that your goods are cleared by customs.  We will also calculate the duty levied against your goods according to their tariff classification and their value according to the manufacturer’s invoice, as well as the amount of GST which is added to all goods that are imported.
