      5gst is taxed on any products above $300. So if your bulk purchase is greater than $300, you'll have to pay!

      I also had a $10 "disbursement" charge - have no idea what that is but that's what the receipt says. grin.. can't argue with the fedex guy and spore gov!

          The 5% GST is levied if your entire purchase (product, shipping and insurance costs) amounts to more than S$400.

          I didn't have to pay any disbursement charge so not sure what that is either.

                  am reviving this thread. does Fedex charge 6% tax for the orders? cos i just ordered from Anf kids... not sure if there would be surcharge...

                  and i just realised that we've had US$240 worth of orders thats not inclusive of shipping... :Doh:

                      so its just a flat charge of $10 right?

                      and i will be incurring GST of 5% right?

                      first time ordering...

                        I think there's some CIF or something like that too... some "hidden" something.. thats why some spree organisers charge 6% instead..

                          arrgghh.. better pray that the additional 6% i charged is enough for me to cover the $10 surcharge and 5% GST.

                          now then i know its not easy organising spress....

                              i took exchange rate at 1.72 to be on the safe side cos im using debit card and told them to add an additional 6%

                              anyway we only have 16 items and shipping for each item costs about USD$3.75

                              kinda expensive huh???
