Who pays for Customs Duties and Taxes?

As a system default, you prepay freight, duty and taxes ensuring that your shipments are delivered fully prepaid. We provide assistance to identify duty rates before shipping. If the actual duties and taxes, assessed by the Customs Agency, are found to be more or less than collected by SCD, you will either be reimbursed or credited back. In either case, we will send you a statement. The government assesses duties and taxes. We only collect and charge the amounts determined by each jurisdiction.
