First thing first : if your imprting it under ur name, you need to have your tin number, there are form to fill in at customs if the amount of tax your paying would be over 10,000 php. now, if you plan to use a company, you need to have ciis number + tin number & all the rest of the docs of the company such as mayor permit, sec, sss, etc.

it will depend on the item you want to import, you have to check import regulations & prohibited items, such as guns, drugs, etc. but if you'd be importing regular items but not used clothes, specific agri products, & used cars, then its ok to start without the docs i mentioned above. we call it informal entry, or first & last shipment.

Export:

Im planning to export Virgin Coconut Oil and Baguio Handicrafts to the US or Belgium. How do I go about it. The recipients are my relatives. Do they need to open up a Corporation?

Import:

Planning to import used books, and magazines. How much is the tax?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


for your export of vco, if its in commercial quantity & you plan to do it for a long time, you need to have bfad here, & registered online on the BTA (Bioterrorism Act) in US. You can check online for the requirements. For Belgium, you need to ask them about their local regulations but you can send it as personal effects, meaning you consign it to a person, but not in a very big quantity, big is about 3 cbm of one item only (vco), you can also do this in the US, but declare the value at a very minimal amount, say US$ 350.00 or less.

for your handicrafts, just make sure its fumigated, you can consign it to a person, us or belgium or get a local forwarder or customs broker & they will arrange everything for you, just tell them what you need.

for used books, magazines, & other paper or printed materials, you need to have a company registered to the bureau of customs, first step, ask a customs broker about the requirements. for some tax references, i think customs now assess taxes & duties based on the kilo of this item, books-US$3.00/K, magazines 3.5-4/K, then convert to php, it becomes the taxable amount.

Outsourcing Business Can Be Profitable if Done Right

Many businessmen now a day outsource their products from several countries while most of them outsourced theirs from China. There are lots of reasons why businessmen do that, avoiding high cost of production, labor problems, bureaucracy to name a few.

We often heard that China’s produce are cheaper but poor in quality. But do you know that China’s products are becoming more and more competitive worldwide? The quality of their products is now at par with the world market standard. In fact, some of the world most famous brands, from automobiles to computers to RTW, are now being produced there.


The Problem

You may ask, if it is cheaper to outsource quality goods from China, why not every businessmen doing that? Valid question isn’t it?

In my observation, most businessmen basically don’t know where and how to start. Some don’t know where to find what they are looking for. Some don’t know how to consolidate their goods, and most don’t know anybody whom they can trust to handle their goods, or probably all of the above.

Doing business with Chinese businessmen is not that easy. There are some factors to consider like
1. Language and cultural differences
2. Negotiation strategies (products’ quality and price)
3. Arrangement of deliveries and payments, etc.

And one mistake can be very costly. I know an American businessman who lost USD 200,000 because the products that were shipped were not according to his specification (P.O). Imagine having inferior products in your doorsteps or worst products not included in your purchase order, and you cannot do anything about it…I call this big time headache. Many businessmen have suffered similar fate because of doing the “short cuts” to save money but eventually losing a bigger one.

The Solution

What if somebody can go in between the process and substantially minimizing the risk? You get your goods the way you want it and at a competitive price, all for a minimal fee. Yes, I can help.

crazy8,

sorry for the confusion. actually since i will just be starting in the next couple of months im pretty sure that i will only send samplers like bottle by bottle instead of boxes. what would the shipping cost be kaya if say, the size oif the bottle is much like that of ascorbic acid you buy at mercury?

skipper, sorry but not sure by what you mean by prices for export.

Shipping costs will be dependent on volume and weight. Did the company/person who you will be sending to specify any mode of shipping for these samples? If you're dealing with foreign companies, they would have their own courier service (fedex, dhl, ups etc...) account. If they could give you their account number, this would allow you to ship these samples to them freight collect. Even if wala silang account with these courier companies, you can still ship freight collect if papayag yung taong makakatanggap. If they will not, then I suggest using postal service to send these items, either airmail or kung gusto mong mas madali ng konti and a bit more expensive, EMS service. I'm not up to date with costs but you can check with your nearest postal office or Mail and More type stores.

Kung courier service naman, you can inquire via phone on how much rates will be, you can give them approximate weight and size of box, and they should be able to give you an idea already. Once you've decided na courier ang gusto mo, you can also call them over the phone and have them pick up the items from your house. Remember to instruct them to bring the documents for you to fill up as well as proper size packaging either box or envelope.

Hope this helps.

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.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Bro my advice is to look for other courier and what does USD 178 Covers is it door to door delivery?

not to discourage you
mahirap mag import ngaun madaming requirements kailanagan mo
1st is the BIR Importer Certificate napakahirap kumuha nyan
And pag meron ka na BIR IC dadalhin yun sa Bureau of Customs
Para sa issuance ng BOC Certificate of Accreditation

Ok kumpleto ka na nyan
mga printing machines need ng permit sa NBI
prior importation so bago dumating goods mo dapat meron ka na permit

BILL OF LADING
document sya from the shipping company proof na load any cargo mo sa vessel

hire a customs broker para ma detalye pa lalo pros n cons ng plans mo
