View Full Version : Importing - Basic Information?

12-06-2005, 12:59 AM

I've been looking at importing goods from india (mainly antiques and ornaments) of various sizes. I was wondering what has to be done over here.....for instance.

If I sell the product online and ship it direct to the buyer, would I need to pay tax in the uk ?

What happens if I ship over the goods to uk then sell them ?

And if you could let me know any other details

Hi, Juicy

Have you got a importing license? if not you need to find an agent to help you to import from india. You need to check the importing tariff for your item. and check whether there is any special policy for importing from india.

For the document you need whole sets Bill of lading, Packing list, Commercial invoice from your supplier, You need to present this doc to your customer maybe, ( cause in China, we :D did need this doc for custom clearance)

In China, we don't need to pay for the tax for the e-commercial. In UK, I don't know: 8O

hope this information would be usefull for you.
