For shipments to Singapore, all declared values of goods, vCare and freight charges are converted to Singapore Dollars at the latest exchange rate as provided by Singapore Customs.
The Goods and Service Tax (GST) is calculated based on the CIF of all packages in an invoice.
Current GST rate is at 7% of the total CIF (Cost, vCare and Freight)
To estimate the GST applicable for your invoice, simple sum up the cost of your products with the shipping cost and vCare charges, if applicable, and multiply it by 7%.
GST Relief is granted for packages (excluding intoxicating liquors and tobacco products) imported via air freight that do not exceed S$400.
If the value exceeds S$400, the entire sum would be subjected to GST.
Please note that GST relief is not granted for goods imported by other transport modes e.g. sea freight and land
