Customs Policies

When goods are purchased abroad for personal or commercial use, including over the internet, and imported into the Federation, Customs Duty, Excise Duty and/or import VAT will be due and payable.

This series of valuation policies outlines and explains how duties and taxes are to be levied under the different scenarios that have been identified. Each policy advises the trading public on how the Customs Value is arrived in each situation. It should be noted that all policies are based on the CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight) value of the good(s) and the valuation methods as determined by the rules of the World Trade Organisation and Second Schedule of the Customs Act, No. 19 of 2014.

It is important to note that the Transaction Value Method is the primary method of Customs Valuation. It is determined by the Price Paid or Payable for the sale of goods for export to St. Kitts and Nevis.
