What happens if the customs payment is wrong?

As the ‘Importer’, you are responsible for declaring an accurate value because it determines the customs duty and import tax you will need to pay. Our estimate may be lower or higher than the amount you actually pay. We need to know the actual value to insert into the customs declaration on your behalf. If the value is not correct, the item may be held by customs, and you may be liable for additional costs and/or customs fines or penalties.
