Hi Guys,

 

There's no import duties on a frame, only VAT. Try and import through a postal service, as they clear the stuff and handle the documents, because if it comes straight airfreight you'll pay a steep handling fee.

Do you mean courier? The UPS handling fee is R100 compared to Post Office's R25.

You must make sure the other spares you want to order cannot be construed to enable you to build a complete bicycle. If so you will pay import duties as on a complete bicycle. Frame alone Nil import duties but 14% +10% on VAT amount only as well as the shipping (courier costs)

You are almost there

 

Cost of frame - R5000

Add cost of shipping

When it arrives in RSA you should pay 14% vat on R5000 = R700 as you calculated. You now pay 10% on the R700 VAT = R70

 

In total you will pay R5000 plus shipping. On arrival you will pay R700+R70=R770
