Import Duty




I will be bringing in building panels for house construction, from the USA.

Import Duty…is that figured on the weight of the material or the dollar value of the product?

Answer #1

Import duty is solely based on the TYPE or CATEGORY of the product… if the product has a local industry be prepared to pay tariffs, if not, or if you are bringing a limited amount for personal use, you are probably OK and won’t have to pay much duty…

But this would be best to check on beforehand with a customs agent here in Ecuador.

suerte! Dom
