Issue with buying a laptop through Amazon & Shipping it here?
« on: October 26, 2017, 10:39:09 pm »
Hey!
I bought a laptop via Amazon & its shipping through DHL. That lap costs $1k.

Are there any tariff/duty that I should pay for Sri Lankan customs? After all, this is for personal use.

Appreciate any input from your end!
Thanks!

Should I get any documents from any offices or anything like that?

Amazon includes all custom clearance costs to the tariff. I mean, added to your tab while completing the order. Hence, this order will be delivered to you.

Else,

DHL will call you when your package arrives. Give them a letter of authority to clear item on your behalf and pay the taxes. They will do everything and deliver you the goods.

There will be handling fee of around LKR 3000 and storage charges of around LKR 3500 on top of the tax, which is around 7%.

Call Mountain Hawk Express (DHL Sri Lanka) and give them the letter of authority beforehand. There is some concession if the item is cleared within 3 days of arrival.

Usually, import deposit is calculated at checkout at Amazon, I think its 0% for computer stuff including laptops. this could mean that there is no tax applied at customs or that amazon couldn't calculate it.

please do a follow-up post on how this went. I was also looking to buy some computer stuff since tax deposit was at 0%
