Do I have to pay an import tax from China?

Import taxes apply as per your country’s laws. The only charges and taxes collected by the Chinese government on imports could be transportation charges or the VAT (Value Added Tax). However, when the shipment arrives in the seller’s country, they have to pay import taxes as applicable by the laws of their country.

Remember to check the applicable taxes before buying from China. Import taxes vary on different items, depending on their specifications and the shipment size. It’s the buyer’s responsibility to pay these taxes when the shipment arrives in the respective country.
