Brought in some car parts from the UK via DHL. On the receipt there's a charge 'Customs Services' 12.5%. There's also separate VAT on the duty, online tax and the custom services fees. Anyone familiar with this?
Single Clearance − Under 19 CFR 128 Express Consignments regulations, non-restricted merchandise based on value and commodity can be cleared on a consolidated manifest for more cost- and time-efficient processing. DHL will assess a service charge when the importer requests a single formal entry if the shipment is qualified to be cleared informally off the manifest.
