      Hello! You will have to declare them on a Declaration CBP Form 6059B, which is only available at the time of entry. Be sure to bring the bill of sale and lading with you. If you are crossing the border with furniture you purchased from India, you will have to declare them on a Declaration CBP Form 6059B, which is only available at the time of entry.

      Hey! Starting an export business it is very important to know where your product will be sold best. Investigate, for example, which countries have in fresh vegetables and plants leaves. If we consider Europe, European developed countries import the most of fresh fruits and vegetables.

    • Hi!

      Also, I'd sugeest you when creating a new item on the site in your list, insert a short description with where those leaves can be used and which is the benefit from them, for the countries that don't grow such products, so that you can attract even those from another part of the globe.

    • Textiles export/import
      01/25/2016 12:18 PM

      Hi! As far as I know, textiles are one of the main exports of India. And I know some people here in the US who have Indian textiles suppliers. I am sure both countries have trade relations and laws that allow you to import or export textiles without big obstacles. And I also know that the USA government has all the info concerning international trade available online on their official sites. Good luck with your business!

    • It's popular nowadays
      02/18/2016 12:27 PM

      I know what it is an often used practice. Many US companies, which produce clothes and other stuff from textiles, often buy them from India. Also, many people would like to have the possibility to buy it. When exporting textiles it is important to note the following: material of composition, the origin of the materials and the end use of the textile product. I'm sure your business will have a great success, good luck!

    • Hello Jennifer!
      12/14/2016 11:00 AM

      Additional considerations for importing textiles include Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) requirements for flammability. Wearing apparel must have labels specifying content and instructions for care. All textiles must have either labels indicating the country of origin or, if this is not feasible, (yarn, thread, wool) be packaged in such a way that country of origin is discernible to the ultimate purchaser. Determining country of origin for mixed products (blouses made in India from Chinese silk) can be very complicated.

      The best solution is to displace your products here. In such a way, the customers are going to find you by themselves, looking for the gemstones they need. Another solution is to contact potential buyers independently. Unfortunately, this process requires a lot of time and spend of money. Of course, it is useless to sit and wait till your export business is going to growth by itself. Join different social pages and make your gemstones visible.

    United Kingdom Import taxes in UK

    Import/Export Taxes and Duties
    Hello! I know that there are different taxes on different products and countries. I'd like to ask if someone knows what products imported to the UK get the highest tax. Thanks!
    Answer this 2 answers
    • Hello, David!
      02/19/2016 10:05 AM

      It is a very interesting question. I also wondered about it and did some research. As far as I know it all depends on the product (some special cases, I mean). But on the official site of UK Government I found, what the higher tax on imported goods is 20%.

    • It is simple
      02/09/2017 10:06 AM

      To answer your question I will show you an example for calculation of import taxes in UK: If you pay your supplier USD$3000 (let’s call it £2000) for your goods, the UK Duty rating for these particular goods is 3.5% and the shipping quote is £300 then: UK Duty = 3.5 % of £2000 = £70.00 VAT = 20 % of (UK Duty [£70] + Shipping [£300] + Cost of the goods [£2000]) = £474.00 Therefore the total duties and taxes payable to import these goods would be £544.00 (£70 for UK Duty and £474 for VAT)
