What are customs duties and why do I need to pay them?

Modified on Thu, 02 Nov 2023 at 08:03 PM

Customs duties are taxes imposed by a country on imported goods. They help generate revenue and protect domestic industries. When your shipment enters a new country, customs duties may apply based on the item's value and classification. These charges contribute to covering administrative costs and ensuring compliance with regulations.  

If your incoterms are DDP (Delivered Duty Paid), you would have delivered the goods to Janio at a specified location and you are responsible for all costs associated with delivering the goods to that location, including duties, taxes, and customs clearance. For more information on Incoterms, find out more here.
