International Billing Options
Choose the International Billing Option that Fits Your Business
UPS international billing options give customers the flexibility to bill charges in a way that best suits their business model.  Whichever option you select, you can be assured that UPS will accurately bill your international charges.
Options

  • Charges can be billed to the shipper, receiver, or a third party payor.
  • Charges for international shipping typically include freight, duties, and taxes. 
  • Customers using UPS's automated shipping systems can choose to have the shipping charges billed to one party and duties & taxes to another.  Or, via the "Split Duty VAT" (SDV) option, customers can bill the freight & duty to one party and the tax/VAT to another.*
 

The following are a few of the UPS international billing options customers may choose:

  • Shipper pays shipping costs; receiver pays duties and taxes
  • Receiver pays all charges (also referred to as"Freight Collect")
  • Shipper pays all charges (also referred to as "Free Domicile")
  • Shipper pays shipping charges; a third party (could be in another country) pays the duties and taxes**
Unless otherwise indicated, shipping charges are billed to the shipper's UPS Account Number and the consignee or receiver pays duties & taxes.* The UPS paper waybill does not support the SDV billing option.  ** Not all billing options are available to/from all countries.  Please check the appropriate service guide or contact your local UPS office for country specific billing information.

NOTE:  A "Duties & Tax Forwarding Surcharge" is applied whenever the shipper requests that the duties & taxes be billed to a payor outside the destination country.  The third party's UPS Account Number is required.
