Custom Duty & VAT

Hi, my friend is sending a laptop from Canada via Xpresspost International post, its refurbished laptop.

I want know how I will pay the custom or Xpresspost will pay on my behalf & I pay them while receiving it and the custom duty calculated on total amount including or only I have to pay for item price.

He will pay 5% customs and 5% VAT. So AED183 +/- on $500

Both customs duty and vat would be payable on CIF value

You are better off sending it with someone who's flying from Canada to here. No customs and no VAT. Otherwise, ask him to send it as a personal gift. I do not think any customs or VAT applies to gifts since there is no value declared.

Actually 500$ CAD is item value & 200$ is shipping

From my understanding, you will need to pay 5% VAT on the amount your friend has marked on the parcel. There shouldn't be any other customs charges.
