Duty/Tax Free Amount (Deminimus Value)

The South Africa Deminimus Value is the declared value of your shipment below which duty and tax will not apply. Meaning, if you are importing a shipment with a total declared value LESS than this amount, duty and tax do not apply (certain products may be subject to other types of fees or taxes). The Deminimus Value is usually different for Duty and Tax.

Deminimus Value for Duty: 0 ZAR
Deminimus Value for Tax: 0 ZAR

Helpful Tips to Assist You With Import

  • Always select "US Dollar Pricing" when shopping.  Many US stores offer multiple currency options. However, if you select a non US$ currency, the US Store may apply a less favorable exchange rate because they have to protect themselves against fluctuating exchange rates. This means you may pay more than you need to for the product.
  • Favored & Zero Duty/Tax Rates.  Many countries introduce ‘favored’ duty and/or tax rates for the import of certain types of products. These tend to be products generally not produced domestically or those that the government wants to encourage the purchase of. Products that enter duty or tax free in many countries include Children's products such as safety gear and baby apparel.  Check with your local government for more information.

  • All packages are cleared through customs for you – whether duty & tax are prepaid or not. This saves you the hassle!
  • MyUS flags prohibited and broken merchandise before shipment so you do not incur shipping, duty, or tax on items that you need returned to the US Store.
