Any idea about the Import Duty for a LifePo4 battery?


Recommended Posts

If it's in the wrong section please move, but does anyone have any idea what the Import Duty for a Solar Battery (LifePo4) would be from China?

If it's coming from China on HS code 8507.60.0000 then expect 10% duty plus 7%VAT on the CIF value plus a "handling fee".

Thx @Crossy

 

And this excludes Shipping as well and as Batteries are Heavy that will be a lot as well!

 

Oke back to search on Lazada it is then 😙

The CIF is Cost, Insurance, Freight. You pay duty on everything, then VAT on the total 😞 

 

It's like this globally so not just a Thai "issue", many don't understand where the "excessive" duty and tax comes from.

 

At least when buying from a local seller that's all handled before you see the price.

Inverters are, I understand, zero duty, so just the VAT and handling charge.

 

A handy-dandy duty calculator is here https://www.simplyduty.com/#calc

The only thing I would add is that according to the Integrated Tariff Database an import permit is required from the Department of Industrial Works.

 

That's probably less of a problem for small items and more of a problem for whole pallets.

I contacted nRuit in China about their 9kWh LFP batteries they quoted me 57k ex factory- I would have to arrange shipping from the factory in China and Thai import duties

A Thai YouTuber I know quoted me ฿68,000 to Bangkok and another ฿1,500 to Surin.
