What are duties and taxes?
Duties & Taxes refer to any additional charges that an individual country believe are applicable. There are various reasons as to why duties & taxes may be applied and each country has their own rules (please refer to the customs information online for the country you need to ship to). Most countries do have a threshold that if the item value is under this threshold, no duties and taxes will be applied.
Please ensure that your items are declared correctly, as items that are discovered as being under declared are subject to penalty fines.
Who pays the duties and taxes?
At the time of booking you need to confirm to Temando whether you or the receiver will be liable for any additional duties or taxes. Temando will not be held responsible for any duties and taxes and the customs agencies will not release goods until any outstanding charges are paid.
There is no negotiation with customs agencies on these charges and your parcels will only be held for generally one month without payment before being destroyed.
Why do I need a customs invoice?
Customs invoices also known as commercial invoices and shipping invoices
These a document that need to travel with your parcel, and contains information about the items inside your parcel. The customs invoice is required for customs clearance, and your shipment can’t leave the country without one.
If you do not supply this document at the time of pickup, either your shipment will not move or it will become stuck in customs & it is very difficult to get freight out of customs.
