The unique DHL EasyShopTotal Cost Calculator can give you an estimate of what you will have to pay, but its accuracy depends on the information supplied.
An example of a Tax and Duty calculation for an import from anywhere in the world to Kuwait when using DHL EasyShop would be:
5% on CIF + 1.5 KWD
Goods Paid Price = US$100
Freight Charges = 30 US$ (Freight value must be declared on waybill)
Insurance C&F = (100+30)*1%= 131.3 $
Total duty value= US$131.3*5%=US$6.5
Conversion to KWD= US$ 6.5 * 0.3 = 1.95 KWD
1.95 KWD + 1.5 KWD= 3.45 KWD
Total Duty Payable: 3.45 KWD
The value obtained from the Total Cost Calculator may be higher or lower than the actual total cost due, for example, to differences between estimated and actual currency exchange rates, package weights, product classification or value, and/or volumetric weight calculations for bulky, lightweight packages.
