Default Shipping Items Duty Tax

Hello All,

How expensive is it to clear items when shipping them to Barbados? For example, let's say I ship a 50inch Flat Panel TV, can I sent it straight to the home or does it have to go through customs to clear it?

If yes on customs, how much do they normally charge for items?

Thanks,

Anthony

You will have to pay duty on this, unless you can convince customs that it is not new
Best people to advise you on the duty payable would be a customs broker. There are lots here. I wish I could recco one, but the one I used was rubbish

I moved my stuff over fm UK last year, customs and shipping this end was handled by Commercial Services. No complaints at all.

Customs clearance was easy too. They came to the house when the container was delivered to be here when it was opened and as the gear came out they went through the stuff checking for new stuff.

Hope this helps

Did you have to pay duty on the used stuff?

Hi Dave

I paid no duty. As far as I understand it the official line is items over 1 year old can be landed duty free.
