|Guidance for calculating destination taxes and duties
Our customers often ask how they can easily determine the final price of sending a shipment – especially when it comes to finding out what taxes and duties will be applied at destination. To support our customers, we developed our easy-to-use Trade Automation Services (TAS) tool to calculate your shipments’ landed costs, i.e. taxes and duties applied at destination, as well as transportation costs.
We also offer further support: many customers don’t know that if your shipment exceeds the low-value threshold, tax and duty invoice will be sent to the receiver. But we offer a way around this: when you’re using DHL’s DDP (Delivery Duty Paid) service, the shipper receives those destination tax and duty invoices. Using the DDP service allows you to provide one cost to your customer, thus streamlining your service offering.
Find out more about how TAS can help you when going global and for more about our DDP service contact your Account Manager or our Business Advisor team.
