WTK: Customs Services

Postby Galvatron » October 24th, 2021, 7:17 am

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?

DHL has advised that the Customs Services charge is a standard charge 12.5% of CIF. Have never seen such from neither fedEx not skybox couriers before. Can anyone say if this is new?

Are you sure is not just VAT on the import they charge you and rename it "Customs Service Charge" ?

If not could be they fabricating charges to you so that they can increase profits.
If that's the case, now may be a good time to look for an alternative import solution.

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.
