- Always select “US Dollar Pricing” when shopping. Many US stores offer multiple currency options. However, if you select a non US$ currency, the US Store will apply a less favorable exchange rate because they have to protect themselves against fluctuating exchange rates. This means you are going to pay more than you need to for the product and your going to pay more in duty and tax on import.
- Avoid Pre-Paying Duty. Unless you have a specific reason for doing so, it is almost always to your advantage *not* to prepay duty and tax. The reason is that not all shipments into a country are assessed. If you prepay duty, you will pay duty on 100% of your shipments. If you do not prepay, you may still end up paying duty on 100% of your shipments but you may also pay less!
- Favored & Zero Duty/Tax Rates. Many countries introduce ‘favored’ duty and/or tax rates for the import of certain types of products. These tend to be products generally not produced domestically or those that the government wants to encourage the purchase of. Products that enter duty or tax free in many countries include Children’s products such as safety gear and baby apparel. Check with your local government for more information.
