India: Goods and Services Tax

Applies to those customers who use Air Express, Air Classic and DPD Direct

Please be aware that the Indian government is planning to introduce Goods and Services Tax for imported shipments from 1st July 2017.

GST will subsume Countervailing Duty (CVD) and Special Additional Duty (SAD), however Customs duty will remain the same.

The consignee will be responsible for GST payment along with any other Customs duty and tax charges.

However if a retailer is set up on the Delivery Duty Paid (DDP) solution, the retailer will be responsible for paying the GST and any other Customs duty and taxes.
