Exporting & Importing Goods/Export clothing from USA to Taiwan


Hi there,
I am thinking about buying branded clothing and export it to Taiwan. I was wondering what would be the best way to ship my items. Would it be better to ship a small quantity or large quantity at a time and what would the price be? Also, do I need to have any sort of license or paying any kind of tax and how much would it be? Thanks!

Good day,

The best way to ship your items is not something I can really advise you on, as I do not know your business, current financials, or growth plans.  For the costs, you will have to contact a shipper and tell them how these will be packaged.  Is it on a pallet? Boxes? etc.

You will be required to pay duty on these items going into Taiwan.  I would suggest speaking with a customs broker in Taiwan to get your duty rates.

Best regards,
