If I'm buying a leather shoes from Amazon, will it be tax?

Previously bought clothes from Abercrombie & Fitch, got tax even the total is just RM 300. It was shipped by FedEx and I realize the MY tax receipt is on the same day it shipped from US.
*
Maybe your courier company(FEDEX) do customs pre-clearance as to smooth the shipping time.

Yes, if they checked & found it in your luggage. Normally 2 units still consider personal use & tax-free but more than that will be taxed...

Btw, does the custom tax has a separate table for commercial/business import?
or are they all the same between private/personal and business, as well as Air or Sea route?

How much is the tax for large qty of engine oil/lubricant and filters for car?

Does the engine oil requires import approval/permit?

Thanks!
*
There is no separate table. As I said before, under RM500 shipment, duty/tax exemption is dependable on individually Customs consideration... Air/Sea/Land inbound still apply to same Tariff Code.
Engine/Lubricating oil is fall under Tariff Code 2710.20 6xx which carry 5% sales tax & no need any permit.
Filter is under 8708.99 990 which carry 30% import duty & 10% sales tax.

Hope that help.

Actually it's taxed based on declared price by sender right? - Yes

What if the sender is your friend and he declare super low price? - Can, but cannot too low. It will trigger Customs curiosity...can ask sender to add 'Used Item' in the description.

Import from US, a Macbook Pro cost around $1400 back to Malaysia, will get taxed, right?

But I have checked on duty calculators, it seems duty free and is exempt of VAT.

Here is the link, http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-d...ails/188263575/

Anyways, I have heard some guys that laptop will get taxed, I am confused! Please anyone could tell me whether or not laptop will get taxed?

Thanks

Worry not, as laptop is duty free under Tariff Code 8471.30 000...


QUOTE(VagueConcerns @ Jun 22 2014, 10:52 AM)
I thought you'd need SIRIM approval as well for electronic devices?

Anyways, I want to ask, what if I buy a board only amp module? Will I need to get SIRIM approval?
I was thinking of asking the seller to label it under "DIY PCB", or "DIY PCB + Components", do you guys think it won't need the SIRIM?  tongue.gif
*
Printed Circuit Board (PCB) no need SIRIM approval but subject to 10% sales tax (Tariff Code : 8534.00 000)

Don't....as that mean shipper ship the item back to you for repair (you are the seller at first). Customs will ask for C2 Forms (export declaration) from you.

Hi, I would like to import chandelier(1 unit)worth USD497 for own use. Will I be taxed? and how much? The seller said it fall under HS Code 940510. will it be advantages if I ask the seller to issue me FORM E (ASEAN-CHINA FREE TRADE AGREEMENT)? Shipment is by DHL, Many thanks!!
*
20% Import duty & 6% GST. Form-E for ACFTA is fill-up by exporter, get endorsement from their respective authority department & will entitle the PCO which is send to you later for doing the declaration to enjoy free-duty rate under that ACFTA (but still have 6% GST). Do your seller willing to do all the hassle for that PCO?

Likely will not be taxed.

Under Customs Duties Exemption Order 1988 Item#172: Any goods below RM500 CIF value using air courier services thru KLIA, Subang, Bayan Lepas, Senai, KK & Kuching airport will be duties/taxes exempted except cigarettes, liquors & tobaccos.

*CIF Value: Invoice value + 10% insurance + Customs standard rate freight charge.

Hi guys

i just ordered 1 stabilized hybrid wood from ebay. basically a blank block of wood for personal craft projects
cost + shipping is around rm380
the seller ships via USPS priority mail

Will i get taxed?
*
Just for sharing...

Ok, this calculation is base on book only.

Invoice value: USD60.00 / RM268 ; Ex-rate=4.47
Freight: Min charge - RM421.59 (IATA rate)
10% insurance value: RM26.80
Total CIF value: RM716.39 (sweat.gif >RM500) This value that Customs look if dutiable/taxable or not...

Duty 20%:
= CIF value x 20%
=(RM716.39) x 20%
= RM143.28

6% GST:
= (CIF Value + duty) x 6%
= RM51.58

*This not including process fees by courier, normally RM30-50 per shipment. Pray hard Customs will close their eyes for this small parcel...and exempt the duty/tax notworthy.gif

Free shipping that you get from seller doesn't effect anything in Customs duty/tax calculation. Shipping rate that Customs Malaysia use is base on IATA rate & it standardize worldwide. As per last info I got, minimum IATA shipping/freight rate from USA to Malaysia is RM421.59.
