Reference of tariff threshold

In general, if the declared value of the package is lower than the tariff threshold, the package normally will not be taxed (but fraud declaration is another matter). If your package is taxed, you need to pay taxes and help clear the customs, but the probability of this situation is very small, only 0.3% of the packages have been taxed so far.

How to avoid paying taxes? 

You can refer to the following suggestions: 

1. The weight of the package is the important basis for the customs to judge the package as a civil parcel or commercial parcel. A package weighing over 10 kg will be considered as a commercial package, so when you submit a delivery order, be sure to confirm the weight of your parcel. If you choose DHL, you also need to consider the volume of items (The charge of DHL is confirmed by both the volume and weight of the commodity).

2. The ceiling of the package weight is 30 kg. If your package is more than 30 kg, you can submit delivery orders respectively but suggested that each order cannot be more than 10 kg as well.

3. A large number of the same item can be regarded as a commercial package, too. So please avoid using the same parcel to send a lot of a single considerable product. 

4. As you know, we are sorry to tell you that we cannot give you a 100% guarantee that your parcel will be taxed or not.


Notes:

The number of the item and the weight of the package is the important basis for customs to judge the package as a civil or commercial parcel. A package that is more than 10 kg will be more likely to be seen as a commercial parcel, so when you submit a delivery order, be sure to confirm the weight of your parcel. And a large number of the same item can be regarded as a commercial package, too. So please try separating the single items into different parcels. 

Besides, limited by customs policy, especially food items, please be careful to send them overseas.
