Confirm the delivery address – And we will let you know which port to send it to. It is important to send it to the closest port in order to keep delivery costs down.
It is very important that we get a copy of the commercial invoice. This must clearly give a description of all items, the number of items and the costs. This will be used in order to clear customs and calculate the taxes which are approximately 8% of the purchase value. Please take note of the costs involved.
Customs duties depend on the item you wish import, please see the link for for information – http://www.customs.go.jp/english/tariff/2015_4/index.htm
Customs inspection charges (JPY 20,000 – 100,000) the clearer the documentation, the less likely a customs inspection would be required. We have no control at all over this.
Consumer Tax – as mentioned above approximately 8% of the items value.
Please note that these costs will only be known during customs clearance and must be settled before delivery. Failure to do so will incur customs demurrage (holding charges)
