Helpful Tips on Declaring Value

Are you an avid online shopper eager to explore the vast world of products in the United States and the United Kingdom? If so, you've probably encountered the complexities of international shipping, especially when declaring values and understanding the associated duties and taxes. Fret not!

We're here to guide you through the process and introduce you to the fantastic benefits of a MyUS Membership.

Understanding Duties and Taxes: Navigating the Maze

Shipping from the US to your country for the first time can be a bit daunting, especially when declaring the value of your shipments. Every country has its own set of rules and regulations, and getting a handle on them is crucial. The calculation of duties hinges on the assessed value of your shipment. Each item is assigned a Harmonization Code, aiding customs in determining the dutiable goods class.

Many countries allow you to import goods up to a certain total package amount before taxing them. However, others, like Brazil and India, require taxes on all imported items, separate from your shipping fees. Enter - your go-to solution for seamless international shipping. Your Gateway to Hassle-Free Shipping

MyUS simplifies the process by offering a convenient platform to manage your shipments effortlessly. However, it's essential to note that fees and taxes are not included in your shipping cost and must be paid upon the arrival of your package.

To ensure a smooth process, request your merchants to include a receipt or merchant invoice when shipping to your MyUS address. This enables MyUS to enter the accurate value for each item upon arriving at their facility.

A pro tip: Always choose "US Dollar Pricing" when shopping and encourage your retailers to provide an invoice, especially if a return is necessary.
