Do I have to pay tax?

“Do I have to pay tax on orders I buy at Excheap?”

Maybe. It depends on what country you are receiving the goods in.

Tax is a complex issue, because it depends what country you are receiving the goods into. Some countries are easy to import into, and have few restrictions and no taxes. Other countries are ultra restrictive and have high taxes. Before you start importing bigger quantities of China electronics to your country, you’ll need to research what the law and practices are in your country (or shipping destination countries if you are dropshipping internationally).

Please read the following notes for some basic background…

No Sales Tax Charged By Excheap:

  • There are no sales taxes or hidden charges to pay on the China side when you buy at – However, you may need to pay some taxes on your local side when you receive the goods. Please read below for more information.
  • When you buy from China, and the products are delivered to your country, this is by definition importing. This means the process to receive the goods will usually be different to simply buying mail-order products from shops inside your country.

Import Duty and Sales Tax Charged By Your Country:

  • Some countries charge tax on certain imported products, at certain quantity/value levels. Some countries do not. You are responsible for finding out the situation in your own country.
  • Whatever you order from Excheap, we will send you. We won’t enforce any rules so it’s up to you to make sure that what you are buying is OK to import in your country.
  • Many countries charge two kinds of tax when you import anything from overseas. These are (1) Sales Tax (VAT); (2) Import Duty. Usually these taxes are not very high,and the tax is calculated according to the value of the goods (+ shipping sometimes). On the other hand, many countries do not charge any tax on certain types of goods, or on small shipments.

Declared Value: Packet Value Affects Tax

  • Usually, importing big quantities of goods from overseas is controlled by your country’s customs quite strictly, but smaller quantities can be imported more freely. The definition of “big quantity” and “small quantity” (often defined by a value “threshhold”) varies from country to country.
  • The term “ad valorem” in import taxes means that the tax you have to pay is calculated as a percentage of the total value of the goods (+sometimes the shipping too). Obviously there would be an advantage to declare the value of the goods lower in such cases. This is known as “under-declaring” the goods and is not permitted, despite being widespread practice. Any customization you request from us in regard to declaration value on the shipping paperwork is at your own risk.

Declared Contents: Packet Contents Affect Tax

  • The category of goods you are importing often has an effect on whether you have to pay tax, or how much.
  • Obviously, certain categories of dangerous or restricted goods are illegal to import in most countries. Other, specific restrictions on certain items such as spy cameras and jammers may apply in your country as well – please research that information for your local country.
  • The declared contents of a package must be true and accurate for customs purposes. Any customization you request from us regarding declaration of packet contents is at your own risk.

Tax And Air Mail Packets

  • Typically, taxes are more often / more strictly applied to courier shipments (UPS, FedEx, DHL) than postal shipments (Air Mail, USPS, EMS). In many countries, for single items, postal shipping is a simple way to reduce or eliminate import taxes.
  • However, shipping by air mail is not necessarily a guarantee of avoiding such taxes.

How To Pay Import Taxes

  • If you have to pay any tax on the goods you receive, the most common way is that the taxes are first paid at customs by the courier (e.g. DHL, FedEx, UPS) and then you simply pay back the courier using cash or your credit card, when they deliver the goods to your door.
  • On bigger orders (meaning, for most countries, anything more than one or two cartons) you should consider hiring a professional licensed Customs Broker to assist you with the clearance of your goods when they arrive in your destination country. This is because tax and contents assessment is applied most strictly to bigger shipments.

Why You Need To Do Your Own Research

  • Import and tax rules are (a) different in every country; (b) changing often; (c) highly dependent on the shipment size and contents; and (d) not consistently applied by your country’s different ports and customs houses. Therefore Excheap cannot offer you specific advice about how much tax you will have to pay, or any guarantees related to this issue.
  • We will always do our best to help you import successfully and profitably. If you have any doubts, simply open a live chat or help ticket with our English-speaking Customer Support Team.
  • Sometimes the importing rules according to your country’s government and customs are not enforced as strictly or consistently as they say. A good way to find out the realities of importing into your country is to begin with a series of smaller orders from Excheap and make careful notes of what (if any) steps you had to go through or charges you had to pay. You may be pleasantly surprised how easy importing is for you.

Who Provides Import Paperwork?

  • In general all the paperwork required for clearing your goods through customs is provided by Excheap. Usually the shipping invoice and courier waybill included with all shipments from Excheap is sufficient.
  • Sometimes additional paperwork such as product licences are required by customs. We track all of your shipments until they reach you, so if there is such a requirement, we will respond to it promptly on your behalf, usually without the need for you to take any action.
  • You may need to show a copy of the shipping invoice to receive your products in some cases, and we will give you the papers you need on request.
  • It is your responsibility to confirm the details of the shipping paperwork with Excheap before the goods are sent out. We will follow your instructions for customizing the shipping documentation according to your requirements, and you, as the importer, bear full responsibility for any exception arising from this paperwork.

Tax Liability

  • The importer is solely responsible for all import taxes, sales taxes, and any other customs-related charges.
  • Excheap accepts no liability for any such charges. Importing taxes and charges cannot and will not be quoted/predicted, and they cannot be reimbursed to you under any circumstances.
  • If an importer refuses to pay taxes or otherwise refuses to comply with requirements of the importing or customs clearance process, the goods will usually not be delivered successfully. In such cases the goods could be seized by customs, destroyed, or returned back to China. In any such cases you, the importer, bear sole responsibility provided no error has been made by Excheap in following your order requirements.

Import Taxes And Dropshipping – Warning

  • Dropshipping means you “sell” goods to an end customer, and Excheap sends the goods directly to your customer without you handling the goods. This means that the end customer is the consignee of the package being sent from China, and this means your customer is also considered to be the “importer” of the goods. Thus, your customer bears full responsibility for importing the goods and paying any applicable taxes, duties, and other charges. Make sure you research the situation and inform your customers clearly in advance!
  • Responsibilities small print:

    – In this system, you as the Dropship Vendor are solely responsible for informing your Dropship Customer about the China origin of the goods, the shipping method, the import declaration used, the import process, any taxes or charges that are likely to be charged or could be charged, and the mechanism for receiving goods and paying applicable charges. You are solely responsible for establishing and communicating whatever delivery terms, warranty, guarantees, or other contracts that you wish to establish with your customers; in these matters Excheap accepts no liability.

    – When dropshipping via eBay selling, Amazon selling, or any similar third party sales platform, you must additionally abide by their terms and conditions for clarifying the delivery/import process for your customers and clearly communicating/advertising your terms before the sale.

    – In an exception case where a Dropship Customer refuses to receive goods, refuses to pay taxes, or otherwise fails to comply with the import process, you as the Dropship Vendor bear full responsibility for resolving the issue directly with your Dropship Customer. In dropship cases Excheap as the Dropship Wholesaler will be deemed to have fulfilled all responsibility for delivering the order, and Excheap will not accept any liability in such cases. In practical terms this means that in such a failed delivery case, you would have to decide whether or not to compensate your customer, but Excheap would not offer you any form of refund.

    – If you consistently fail to inform your customers properly about their import responsibilities, leading to delivery exceptions, we reserve the right to close your account and cancel any outstanding orders.

Getting More Information About Taxes

  • Please undertake your own research about import regulations and taxes in your country. We can offer informal pre-sales advice, but we will not offer any formal advice or guarantees due to this issue being beyond our control.
  • After you have placed your order from Excheap, make sure you get in touch with us to confirm details of any customization that you require for your shipping invoice declarations.
  • After your packets have been sent out from our warehouse, we will stay in touch with you and help you with any further importing process steps.

Only one hard drive can be connected to your Xbox 360 console at a time. The transfer cable cannot be used to connect multiple hard drives to your console at the same time.

To transfer all hard drive content to another console

  1. Remove the hard drive from your old Xbox 360 console (the source hard drive). For information on how to do this, please see the following article:
    906204 ( ) How to attach or remove your Xbox 360 hard drive

    933498 ( ) How to download updates for your Xbox 360 console

  5. Select Start to begin transferring content.
    The transfer might take several hours to complete, depending on the amount of content stored on your old hard drive. Once the transfer is complete, sign in to Xbox LIVE on the destination console.

    Note If the Start button is not available, you will need to free space on the destination drive before you can start the transfer.
