Each country establishes its own standards as to which goods are considered documents and which are dutiable. You can either:
our purchase may or may not have these charges, based on thresholds (tax exempt amounts), but remember all imports are subject to being charged import fees, taxes, custom duties, and related package handling fees are these charges are NOT included in the price you pay in almost all cases when buying at eBay.com from the USA. Items cannot be sent as gifts. These charges are usually NOT known by the seller and the seller cannot find out any exact amount as our postal service is instructed NOT to mention any number. You must pay for these to your country collection authority in advance of receiving your purchase. You cannot reject the package.
A tariff or duty (the words are used interchangeably) is a tax levied by governments on the value including freight and insurance of imported products. Different tariffs are applied on different products by different countries.
Below is also a list of publically available databases with tariff and tax information usually published by each country’s government. Tariff (duty) rates are listed by each product’s HS code. If you do not know it, find out how to determine your HS code.
