For those who've been taxed by Customs, do they:
Charge based on Declared Value, Purchased Value, US Market Value, PH Market Value?
One data point only: Taiwan seller, shipped to PH via EMS, picked up and assessed at CMEC, Pasay City.
Duties = 10% of declared (value + insurance cost + freight cost)
VAT = 12% of (declared ... + duties)
For US to PH via forwarder, have not experienced being assessed. Also wondering how customs charges (if any) would be computed.
For those who use Forex/Drop Ship: When encoding items, do you put in a USD amount, or leave at $0.00 ?
Is the list of items with USD amounts (Drop Ship or Online Shopping) being provided to PH customs ... for all boxes? only selected boxes on request? electronically? hardcopy? (almost one ream of paper per container of 400+ boxes)
