Duties and taxes are not included in your Forwardme shipping costs, and the calculation of these fees depends on several factors. 

These include the country of origin, destination, the commercial value of the items, and the type of item shipped.

The rate at which duties and taxes are applied is determined by the customs authorities in the destination country and can vary greatly from one country to another. Some countries may also have specific rules and regulations around certain types of goods, which can affect the duties and taxes applied.

To determine whether your shipment will be subject to duties and/or taxes, and to estimate the potential cost, we recommend reaching out to your local customs office or a customs broker. They can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information, taking into account any changes in regulations or rates.

Please note that it is your responsibility to pay these charges upon delivery. Failure to do so can result in your shipment being held by customs, delayed, or even returned to the sender.
