I am not really importing but wanted to order online. I don't know how to proceed. How does customs charge you for your order. The item I wanna buy is an electronic chess board cost around 600USD.

The vendor has a UPS shipping option and they charge around 178USD. Do you know if I choose this option I will still be charge extra or do I have to pay more upon delivery??

Any help will be appreciated.

It would depend on the Asian country and your contacts. You can either talk to the company directly or avail of the services of a buyer/consolidator

Hi, I'm interested in starting an export business. Just wanna ask what are the business registrations/permit that are needed. I'm thinking of exporting coconut oil and other agricultural products to Canada (coz have a relative there that's interested in the idea). Thanks.

Importing basic goods (except for those that needs licensing from special governmental orgs) is quite simple. 1st question is how fast do you want to receive your goods. You decide kasi shipping via air or via sea malaking difference sa presyo and depending on coutry of origin difference sa transit time. Once you've decided, you have to check on the volume of goods to be shipped. If maliit lang ang volume, for air you can either have them sent via courier or postal service na lang. If via sea, malamang pa loose cargo mo or for countries with balikbayan boxes, yan na lang gamitin mo. If volume mo malaki, say 32CBM or 64CBM use a 20foot or 40 foot container respectively.

You can contact a forwarder/consolidator if you want but syempre they will charge for their services. And definitely you will need the services of a customs broker once the goods arrive. Ingat sa airport and LC/L shipments as madalas may nakawan sa bonded warehouses.

Hmm, not sure what the tariff rate is on this item but should be between 15-20%. So US$600 multiplied by the prevailing exchange rate (don't understand why but customers usually uses black market rate) x tariff rate gives you duties to pay. You will also have to add VAT which is computed by adding both value of the goods as well as shipping charges.

If its around 54.5 to the greenback, with a tariff rate of 20%, duties would total PhP 6,540 plus PhP 4,240.10 for VAT. You'd have to pay roughly PhP 10,780.10 in duties and taxes for the item you're buying.

pogingpogi, some questions:
1. country of origin
2. volume
3. how often

If you're bringing in commercial volume, you will be required to get a CIIS. One suggestion which applies if you're shipping from HKG but not from China, you could use balikbayan boxes. Marami nagooffer nyan there, it's around US$60 but door to door na yan, no duties pa. From HKG to MNL, it's around 2 days max. The only thing is if you have someone there who's willing to pick and pack for you.

Pag malaki laki volume mo, there are other door to door service providers. Comp*tation is by CBM, from HKG parang mga P8-10T per and from China, depending where mga P3,600-4,800 per. Problem is malabo ata makukuha mo within 3 days.

Air freight will be expensive. Meron din mga nagaayos ng releasing ng cargo from airport/bonded warehouse, parang P175-250 per kilo excluding freight charges plus misc.

pogingpogi, your quantity and volume is small to fill a container. Suggest you consider either shipping loose cargo or using one of the consolidators. Shipping loose cargo will require you to get CIIS permit keep that in mind. You might also have to have you product certified by Bureau of Standards since almost all electronics are required to do so.

For consolidators, again they charge via CBM with prices around P3,600 to 4,800 but at least door to door na yan and sila na bahala sa lahat. All you have to do is have your supplier deliver to consolidator's warehouse in China and then they ship our goods and will deliver to your doorstep. Impossible that after 3 days will arrive though as usually takes 5-6 days total. You can check our United Daily News, which is a Chinese daily. Maraming nagaadvertise dyan for these kinds of services.

i'm planning to buy a cd from japan and i found out that even if you buy just one cd, you are considered an importer so here's the question:

the cd costs 1900 pesos, shipping through registered mail included.
how much will i have to pay customs and how do i do that? will i have to go to an office of some kind?

your replies will be very much apreciated, thanks.

hitomi, not much work to do here. Post office will either deliver it to your address (means you don't have to pay any duties and taxes) or you will have to claim it at your municipal post office. You will know if you have to claim at the post office once you receive via mail a white claim stub which will indicate where you have to get it. Remember to bring a valid ID to claim your item. Once you get to the post office, they do have a customs inspector there. Duties and taxes should be around 600 to 700 depends on how much postal costs but madalas if they see that its for personal consumption they don't even let you pay anymore.

Hitomi, almost forgot, try mo lang if papayag, tell the supplier whom you're buying from if they're willing to undervalue. If papayag naman, just tell them to value at US10.00 or less. Hope this helps.
