Customs Act: The Duty-free Threshold for Imported Goods

The Customs Administration, Ministry of Finance will lower the duty-free threshold for imported goods from NT$3000 to NT$2000. The new practice will take effect from the beginning of next year. The main reason for the move is to protect domestic enterprises from unfair competition resulting from cross-border online purchases. It also helps to prevent domestic suppliers from setting up foreign entities to import low-priced merchandizes with tax-free benefit.
