Singapore Duties and Taxes
Duties and taxes only apply on shipments where the value is higher than the threshold value (sometimes known as Singapore's de minimis value). Depending on your territory or region, or the type of good, there may be some other service fees or taxes.
Countries sometimes have a "de minimis value", where if you ship a parcel that falls under that value, you don't have to pay taxes on those purchases. Singapore's de minimis value is 400 SGD. If your total parcel is valued over 400 SGD, you will likely be subject to a 7% Singapore tax. Please note that ad valorem or specific duty rates may be applied for dutiable goods, which include:
- Intoxicating liquors
- Tobacco products
- Motor vehicles
- Petroleum products
For more information and the latest updates, please visit Singapore's Customs website. Singapore's tax fees are not included in Forward.me shipping costs, so you may need to pay these fees upon delivery of your shipment.
When you choose to ship with Forward.me, we'll quickly process and deliver your packages.
