Understanding De minimis Value


What is a de minimis value?


De min­imis is a thresh­old that exempts imports from duty and or tax/​VAT and dif­fers by coun­try. You may avoid pay­ing duties when ship­ping to par­tic­u­lar coun­try if the val­ue of your ship­ment does not exceed the De Min­imis value. 

The thresh­old varies from coun­try to coun­try and each thresh­old is based on local cur­ren­cy. In addi­tion, some coun­tries don’t have a de min­imis rule, so every­thing gets taxed; oth­er coun­tries don’t have cus­toms duties, so noth­ing gets taxed. Fur­ther­more, de min­imis thresh­olds for duty and import tax can vary in some coun­tries, there­fore ship­ments can be sub­ject to one tar­iff but not another.

De minimis values per country


The major­i­ty of import coun­tries have a de min­imis amount for duty and tax. Below is a ref­er­ence sheet of each country’s val­ues for duty and tax de minimis. 

What is the dif­fer­ence between duty and tax? The key dif­fer­ence between tax­es and duties is that duties are a type of tax on goods enter­ing or leav­ing a coun­try, while tax­es are charges placed on almost all pur­chas­es. Both con­tribute to the total import and export costs of a product.

Be aware some coun­tries have spe­cial rules and con­di­tions that do not clear­ly define their de min­imis values. 

How much do I have to pay if the de minimis value of my goods is over the threshold?


The ship­ping cost you pay For­ward­Via does not include local import tax and duty, and clear­ance if applic­a­ble. It depends pure­ly on the goods, val­ue and indi­vid­ual coun­try import rules. You should check with your local cus­tom to find out the tax rate. You can also get esti­mat­ed rate from var­i­ous online cal­cu­la­tor, and one of it can be found here.

Dis­claimer: This is for guid­ance only, check with your local cus­tom to con­firm the val­ue. The above infor­ma­tion and list below may con­tain infor­ma­tion that may not be com­plete­ly accu­rate or up to date.
