De minimis values
Learn what a de minimis value is and what each contry's de minimis value is.
A de minimis is a threshold that exempts imports from duty and or tax/VAT and differs by country. De minimis value has a significant impact on ecommerce, because business-to-consumer (B2C) orders are typically a much lower value than business-to-business (B2B). De minimis value provides faster clearance and opportunity to sell into markets competitively.
Countries that are a member of the European Union and use the Euro as a currency all share the same de minimis thresholds.
In the United States, imports are duty and tax-free due to the generous 800 USD de minimis. Then, there are other countries where the de minimis is not as straightforward as it appears, such as Australia’s 1,000 AUD de minimis. Australia’s de minimis is technically 1,000 AUD; however, if you sell over 75,000 AUD a year into Australia, you are required to register/remit GST and not via the customs clearance process. Russia’s de minimis threshold is 200 EUR and accompanied by a weight threshold of 31 kilos. When either or both are exceeded, the shipment is no longer a low-value personal shipment and the importer must hire a broker to clear it.
