Hi Spicy,

For new company or individual who want to import any commodities with commercial value and or  in commercial quantity, you need to apply first for Importer’s Accreditation to the Bureau of Customs. Only accredited importers have the privileges to imports any commodities whether regulated imported commodities or freely imported commodities.

You need to hire the services of a licensed customs broker to handle, process and facilitate the releasing of your import/export shipment. The customs broker shall help you from pre- shipment such as opening of Letter of Credit (L/C) application, monitor the shipment arrival, process the import permits, handle documentation, compute duties and taxes, till delivery of shipment to importers warehouse.

For more queries Pls PM me.

Best regards,
RST C/B

Thank you very much, Is this the same procedure like importing improper channel? Since im only new in this business, i would want to consider importing goods improperly :) and the value and quantity of my items are not really that big. What do you think?

Hi! I'm importing a machine from China for company use, its a cutting machine, it turns out the company I bought it from has an export agent/broker who handles everything, do i still need a customs broker on my side? The company said all I need to do is wait for the notice for pick -up.
Can anyone help me?

Hi Ms Nikki_sena,

For that mentioned commodity, you need the services of Licensed Customs Broker to do the customs releasing, documentation, and handle the delivery up to the warehouse/factory of your company.

Unless your agent in china arranged your cargo as door to door delivery, meaning your cargo will deliver
up to your door paid all the freight charges, delivery charges, ect.

If you have a copy Bill of lading, maybe i could help you to determine whether your cargo is door to door delivery or not.


RST CB ;)

Hi HH,

All article coming into the Philippines are passed through Customs Authority for collection of duties & taxes regardless of quantity and mode of service.

Door to Door service does not meant nakaiwas ka sa pagbabayad ng tax at wala ng customs inpection.

Wala nman violation sa customs pag DOOR-TO-DOOR for as long as bnayaran mo ung tax (directly or indirectly).

 Ang advantage lang kasi ng door to door ay hihintayin mo na lng ang kargemento sa lugar mo (no need to go to customs for clearing)

 Ang disadvantage lng nito ay sobra mataas ang charges (i.e. freight, handling, delivery, customs tax, etc.)

Kung ang iyong commodity ay wala naman sa listahan ng Prohibited Imports obviously no confiscation will be made.


Hope this helps,

Salamat po ng marami sa agad nyong pagreply!!

Wala nman violation sa customs pag DOOR-TO-DOOR for as long as bnayaran mo ung tax (directly or indirectly). Paano ko po malalaman kun nabayaran ko yung tax  directly or indirectly?

Ang advantage lang kasi ng door to door ay hihintayin mo na lng ang kargemento sa lugar mo (no need to go to customs for clearing) Ilang araw po ba ang DHL door to door services? compared to other services na mas mura?

Ang disadvantage lng nito ay sobra mataas ang charges (i.e. freight, handling, delivery, customs tax, etc.) Oo nga eh... ano po ba pwdeng gawin para makamura?

Pwede po ba akong magimport without any established business or business permit to operate?

HH,

Pointers to your question:

1. BCOR (Bureau of Customs Official Receipt) or Receipt issued by Authorized Agent Bank.

2. It would be proper if DHL can comment on average transit time.

In our case, the moment we get an arrival notice from the airlines....releasing follows and it takes us 1 day (the most) to clear shipment from customs.

3. Shop freight rates from different forwarders.

4. I suggest to start right from the beginning. You can import goods without securing Importer's Accreditation with the BOC so long as the Invoice value does not exceed $500.00 at hindi sya in commercial quantity.

Importation of commodities with value less than US$500 and the goods must be one of a kind, meaning 1 pc per item.

To those who want to excel on this import business, I strongly suggest to attend the 3-day training/seminar on importation at PTTC-DTI. Fees are minimal since it's subsidize by the government. And btw, some of the custom brokers will only give you a headache. So better equip yourself with knowledge in this kind of field.

Ask details here:
