Navigating US Customs and Import Taxes

All parcels sent to America must clear customs. With the correct paperwork, your shipment should pass through smoothly. Upon booking with Megway Parcels, we’ll provide all required documents. Be aware that certain items, like food, need extra documentation, which we will also supply. Find out the specific documents required for different shipments to the USA.

Guidelines for Completing a US Commercial Invoice

The commercial invoice is crucial. Our booking process simplifies completing this document, but remember to include:

·         Comprehensive contact information for both the sender and recipient. If customs need more information or there are issues with clearance, they will contact the recipient. Ensure all details are accurate, including a US phone number and email, to avoid delays.

·         Detailed item descriptions: List each item separately, including its value, material, and intended use. This helps US Customs understand the parcel contents and speeds up the inspection process.

Understanding Import Taxes and De Minimis Thresholds

Shipments valued under $800 (approximately £586*) to the USA are exempt from duties or taxes. Parcels worth more than $2,500 (around £1,834*) will undergo formal clearance, possibly adding an extra day or two to delivery times. Keep this in mind if timely arrival is critical.
