Tips to avoid tax
- Parcel over 10kg has a higher chance to be regarded as commercial package. If you choose DHL,you need to consider the volume weight also.We recommended that each consignment should not exceed 10kg if you don’t want to pay tax.
- Avoid large quantity of the same product in the same package, since it has a higher chance of being classified commercial package. We recommend to split into different parcels if you don’t want to pay tax.
- Canada ,Brazil , France and some european customs are rather strict on commercial courier such as DHL,Fedex,UPS,etc. We recommend using airmail or ems in some cases.
