Duty Structure of computer,Laptop

You were ripped off. Customs assume their own value if they suspect the declared value is wrong.

$750 laptop should have total customs cost of about Rs 14000 or less.

Dear Brother,

I read all of the information in this thread which is very informative and before reading it these duty and taxes things, they were just scared the hell out of me. Coming to my point…

A friend of mine sending me a laptop from USA which cost approx 300,000 PKR and the shipping would be approx 20,000 PKR through DHL / USPS. So the total value would be approx 320,000.

After using your method mentioned in the above thread i believe the total money I have to pay to government of Pakistan is approx 28,000 PKR since I am a filer.

Would you please confirm:

  1. If this is the correct amount I have to pay or are there any hidden or additional costs?
  2. What if they ask for any additional amount which was not mentioned in the method shown above in your thread.

looking forward to hear from you


Normally customs would assess brand new laptops @ approx $750-$1000 (depending on brand/specs) in case no price is mentioned, otherwise if the price mentioned is higher than at what they normally assess, then of course they charge duty accordingly, and I don’t think they would be asking more, since your price is higher than their normal valuation.

@imran.jafri thank you for your reply. I appreciate.

To whoever can inform me, that is, if this thread is still active,

My relative is to ship a laptop priced at 1450$ to Pakistan from the US as a gift to me for personal use, i called a customs officer and he said the 17% sales tax is applicable, which would blow up the final price incredibly. Is it actually applicable?

Thank you

I forgot to tag the support parties,

I would really appreciate information. It’s been a really confusing few months
