Some of our products (e.g. the ABR, SendiT level etc.) ship directly from the USA saving extra shipping costs and saving time in transit. Varying per individual country this product ships to, the customs department of the country of destination might add import duty/tax (also known as customs duty, tariff, import tax or import tariff). Typical import tax is around 5.63%. The application of tax is outside of the control of SSD.
