India to/from NZ (Changes to local tax applications)
Please note that when shipping to/from India a government regulated service tax will apply on services locally within India. The application of the India Service Tax will result in an increase of 12.36% on both import and export service charges including terminal handling, container detention, inland haulage and documentation fees.
The India Service Tax is already applied on shipments where the invoice is paid locally in India. From 1st June 2015, it will also be required to be paid on all shipments where the local charges are invoiced to companies outside of India. This tax is imposed by the Indian government.
