Tariff Calculator

  1. Total Cost of the goods = FOB Cost + Insurance + Freight
  2. Total Cost of the goods x Import Customs Duty = A
  3. (Total Cost of the goods + A) x Excise Tax Rate (If applicable) = B
  4. (Total Cost of the goods + A + B) x VAT = C
  5. (Total Cost of the goods + A + B + C) x Surtax = D
  6. Total Cost of the goods x Withholding Tax = E
  7. TOTAL PAYABLE at THE TIME OF IMPORT = A+B+C+D+E

Note: There are some goods that may be exempted from one or more of the taxes and duties  mentioned  above.
