Applying a Custom Duty Rate to a Product


Customs duty rates can be allocated to products so that an accurate duty rate will be added to the product's landed costs when it is receipted in.

To apply a duty rate to a product:

  1. From the left navigation, click Products.
  2. Click on the Product you want to update.
  3. From the Accounting Section, select the duty rate from the Import Customs Duty Code drop-down.

4. Click Save.

The new customs duty rate will now be applied to the landed costs whenever this product is receipted in.

The Accounting section should appear by default in your product module. If not, this can be configured in the general settings for the products module.
