The import duty for household goods

It appears that import duty exemption is available on household belongings, for foreigners moving to St. Vincent. To be eligible, the goods must be brought into the country no earlier than three months before your entry, or no later than three months after your entry. However, the Comptroller of the customs department can issue an extension if they wish.

Another condition for duty exemption, is having owned and used these goods for a minimum of the last 12 months. Finally, they must be for your own personal use, and you cannot intend to sell them or employ them for commercial purposes (1).

Exemption Under CARICOM Agreement

Bear in mind that on Saint Vincent’s customs website, the household duty exemption is included on the List of Conditional Duty Exemptions - as laid out in the CARICOM Common External Tariff. It further explains that Member States have the right to deny the full amount of exemption and charge a tariff specified in the Schedule of Tariff Rates instead (2).

Confirmation of Exemption Recommended

In other words, it seems that customs can decline to offer you a duty exemption on your household goods - though it seems unlikely. However, prudence dictates that you contact customs prior to shipping, to confirm whether exemption will apply in your case.

The import paperwork for household goods  

You’ll need to provide various documents, before your household belongings will be granted entry into St. Vincent. Among these is an Exemption/Concession Import Form (custom Form CL 01) (3). For household goods, you’ll need to check the conditional duty exemption box - as these items are classified under this category (4). You may also need to fill out a Customs Authorization Form and/or an ASYCUDA World User Form (5). Beyond that, Saint Vincent’s customs website provides no further details concerning the paperwork required for shipments of household items. For this reason, you should contact them for more information.

The import duty for vehicles  

Partial duty relief is only available to returning citizens (and even then only if they’ve been living abroad for more than 10 years), and in other certain circumstances. For example, farmers are also offered partial duty relief, and it’s also applied to the importation of school buses (6).

For foreigners intending to import a personal vehicle, the full duty rate will be charged - which is currently 35%. An additional excise tax of 35% will also be levied on diesel vehicles, and this rate climbs to 40 - 45% for gasoline vehicles (depending on engine size). CSC of 4% will be incurred as well, plus a surcharge ranging from $3,000 to $4,500 (again dependent on engine displacement). Finally, value-added tax (VAT) of 15% is imposed on vehicle imports.

These fees are all calculated using the CIF value, which is the value of the vehicle plus shipping and insurance charges. Customs will typically use the purchase price of the vehicle for valuation purposes (7).

The import paperwork for vehicles  

You must submit certain documentation to the Valuation Section of customs, including the purchase receipt for the vehicle. This must be the original document directly from the vehicle supplier (such as the dealership), and include your name, the supplier’s name, the sale amount, year of the vehicle, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and more. See the Import Procedure For Motor Vehicle document published by customs, for a complete list of the details required.

You’ll also need to show an Insurance Certificate if required in your case, and the Original Bill of Lading for the vehicle shipment. A separate Automated System for Customs Data (ASYCUDA) World Bill of Lading is mandatory as well. Proof of payment and a Bill of Sight will be requested by customs too (8).

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
