As the original purchase price and the landed cost of goods can differ greatly, it is important to make decisions on imports with all the relevant figures at hand.
Take into account what duty tax percentage is payable on the goods, the cost of transportation and insurance, as well as VAT and you have a much clearer understanding of financial outset, as well as whether or not the outcome of your import will be profitable.
Our Landed Cost Calculator makes it easy to determine the bottom-line price of importing your shipment.
To use our Landed Cost Calculator you will need:
- Your supplier’s sales contract and invoice.
- The exchange rate at time of payment, or an estimate if you have not yet paid.
- The breakdown of cost for transport from your supplier to the international carrier.
- The cost of international transport.
- The breakdown of cost for transport from the international carrier to your premises.
- The cost of your freight insurance
- The duty tax percentage of your goods. If you are not sure what this percentage is, please refer to our Import Duty Tax Lookup.
Complete the appropriate fields with this information to determine what the eventual landed cost of your import will be.
