All You Need To Know About Customs Clearance
There are two types of customs clearance, namely B2C and B2B customs clearance. Goods sold directly to end customers will undergo B2C clearance. B2C clearance also means that the De Minimis Rule applies and your parcels enjoy tax exemptions at customs.
You should also note the commodity type of your shipment as it will determine the list of documents you would need for customs clearance. Documents required also depend on the customs regulations of the origin and destination countries. Read on to find out more or speak to our friendly Ninjas to learn about the customs procedures for your international shipment.
Duties For International B2C Shipment
Due to the De Minimis Rule, B2C parcels are exempted from custom duties and taxes as long as their value is below the de minimis threshold of the destination country. However, the values stated below are subjected to changes of customs regulations.
The De Minimis value for Singapore is 400 SGD. If parcel value exceeds this threshold, a 7% GST will apply. Import duties might also be applicable depending on the goods category.
The De Minimis value for Malaysia is 500 MYR. If parcel value exceeds this threshold, a 10% SST will apply. Import duties might also be applicable depending on the goods category.
The De Minimis value for Thailand is 1,500 THB. If parcel value exceeds this threshold, a 7% VAT will apply. Import duties might also be applicable depending on the goods category.
The De Minimis value for Indonesia is 3 USD. If parcel value exceeds this threshold, a 10% VAT will apply. Import duties might also be applicable depending on the goods category.

B2C customs clearance generally require fewer documents than B2B clearance but additional documents may be required if you are shipping controlled goods. Controlled goods are categorised into prohibited and restricted goods. Prohibited goods are not allowed to be exported or imported while restricted goods require authorisation from relevant agency to move across borders.
