Shipping Cars to Thailand

 

BAN ON BIKES AND CARS, INTO THAILAND 2017

BANGKOK: -- BANGKOK: --The government has banned imports of used body parts for passenger cars and motorcycles in order to prevent tax evasion, while the Transport Ministry has also banned the registration of cars assembled from used parts. Around 4,000 vehicles assembled locally from imported used body parts were registered in Thailand last year. This affects domestic assemblers because vehicles with used parts have lower prices than comparable domestically produced vehicles.Transport Ministry will ban the registration of four types of passenger vehicles containing used parts, including those with capacity of more than seven persons and 12 persons, personal trucks and motorcycles. Not sure on imports for returning Thais on Used cars at this time.

We can ship 3 cars in 1x 40ft FCL but please ask your customs & Road Transport if you need compliance etc

As at 2014 all shipments for Personal every customer must sign an Indemnity form to cover us regarding all shipments. Pallets we can supply and will not accept pallets from customers shipping LCL. Due to drugs etc and contraband we will no longer ship and pack goods and take responsibility if you do not sign our Indemnity form.

SHIPPING VIA BULK CARRIER CAMPERS, CARS AND TRUCKS IN GENERAL:
Please be aware of the following:
FYI. Please note that when shipping trucks and & vehicles including campers it is important
items pertaining to the vehicle are properly secured or not shipped with the vehicle. This includes personal affects and any loose items
plus any DG or flammable liquids and cargo including gas cylinders. If permanently attached with the vehicle then this is fine but all cylinders must be empty. This is now a rule with sea freight ocean transport due to the incidents in the past like rough seas, freak waves, storms & fires. All items that may not be secure must be lashed accordingly as the items will not be covered on insurance. In the past items have actually broken free from the vehicle and damaged other cargo outside as well as the vehicle itself. To prevent this from occurring we cannot accept personal affects inside the vehicles to be shipped. The onus is on the owner not the shipping company.

Importing a car into Thailand, whether new or used, for personal use or for sale, you must pay taxes and duties. For all foreigners before writing to us the duty and tax on used vehicles import taxes 188% from CIF price. If you value your car at $2000 it does not necessarily mean your duty will be less as Thai Customs will value on their rates only.

Used vehicles are restricted goods and generally not allowed for importation into Thailand, except for temporary imports as mentioned above or imports under the conditions specified by the Ministry of Commerce. Importer will need to obtain an "Import Permit" from the Ministry of Commerce. Each scheme has its own specific requirements. It is important that the importer should find out whether he can meet those requirements before committing.

Example Calculation of Taxes and Duties

 

The following example shows a breakdown of the liable taxes and duties assessed on the vehicles less than 2400 c.c. cylinder capacity with a CIF value of 1,000,000 Baht. CIF value of the imported vehicle and applicable taxes and duties are as follows:

CIF value of the import= 1,000,000 Baht

Import duty= 80 %     Excise tax= 35 %    Interior tax= 10 % of excise tax + VAT 7%

 The total import duties and taxes imposed on this import are calculated as follows:

1. Import duty = (CIF value * Rate of import duty)=(1,000,000 * 0.8)= 800,000 Baht

2. Excise tax = (CIF value + import duty) * {Rate of excise tax/1-(1.1 * Rate of excise tax)} = (1,000,000+800,000) * {0.35/1-(1.1*0.35)} = 

1,800,000 * 0.5691057 = 1,024,390.20 Baht

3. Interior tax = Excise tax * Rate of interior tax = 1,024,390.20 * 0.1 = 102,439.02 Baht

4. Base VAT = (CIF value+ Import duty+ Excise tax + Interior tax) = (1,000,000 + 800,000 + 1,024,390.20 + 102,439.02)= 2,926,829.20 Baht

5. VAT= Base VAT * VAT Rate = 2,926,829.20 *0.07 = 204,878.04 Baht

Total taxes and duties = 1+2+3+5 = 2,131,707.20 Baht
