Oh no... Pakistan economy will suffer a lot .A Bridgestone Tyre which was rs5200 per Tyre when dollar was at 107 went up to rs6800 per Tyre when dollar rose to 117. It was just an example how things will be affected by this dollar
My advise is to stay away from SCB. Their conversion rate is always poor. They give very high rate for foreign transactions and very low for foreign remittance encashments. On top of that they have excessively high charges for everything.I have moved to HBL and they offer much better rates. I only stayed with SCB because of their online services, but other banks have now caught on in online services so there is no point in staying with them. HBL charged me market rates for AliExpress transactions, used my debit card.
Meezan bank is best
Any one purchase night vision goggles thru Ali express??
1% advance tax on foreign transactions for filers and 3% for non-filers have been implemented.
Is it in addition to what banks were previously charging?
I ordered ladies sandle to ali express @ 1145 pkr when order arreived to me via post office there is duty of 675 pkr is implemented on simple sandle pair for 1 person. Then i have to pay 675 pkr more. Does any body tell that this is 0k to pay huge custom duty on simple sandles. Before this i ordered car accesories? Electronics? Led lights but was never charged such duties. Any info would be apretiated.
i did ordered a lot of shoes/sandal no duty no extra charged.
Custom List 2018.pdf (7.0 MB)
Custom duty list for 2018 is attached. Search if sandals/shoes etc are taxed or not and how much. You must have the tax receipt that you payedTake it to the office again and demand explanation if tax on such item is 0%
yeh kya hia???
I have ordered shoes, sandals etc a hundred times ands never charged duty.
People are even buying sandals from AliExpress now? This is waste of foreign exchange and I suspect the day is not far when government implement stringent measures to stop this misuse. Recent advance tax on international transactions suggests that this channel is already under government's radar.
Anyone experiencing payment issue with AliExpress today??Today AliExpress is asking for security code(that is on back side of card) for the first time!!!And even when i enter it is saying unable to process your order
Made a payment today without any issue.
Please share link
Ok it was some website or bank error. Now again payment is smooth
