Value of Duty

Value for Duty is the value used to calculate the duties or taxes payable by importers on their imported merchandise. There are many ways to determine the value of goods. One way is the transaction value method, where the value of the duty is based upon the price paid for the imported goods, subject to certain additions or deletions (transportation, export packing, license fees, etc.).
