How Import Customs Duty & Other Taxes Calculate

Let suppose we are the commercial importer and we have imported PLASTIC GRANULES (HS Code 3901.9000) in Pakistan having CNF Value 18387 US$ now we will calculate customs duty and other taxes of this consignment.

Calculate Customs Value of Imported Goods

We have to calculate customs value first because we will need this value to find out import customs duty, sales tax, and income tax etc.

In order to find customs value, we add landing charges, insurance, and other charges (if any) with the CNF value of the imported goods, after adding all values now we convert this value into Pak Rupees therefore multiply it with current exchange rate
CNF Value of Cargo = 18389 US$
Plus: Landing Charges = 183.89 US$ (1% of CNF Value)
Plus: Insurance = 183.89 US$ (1% of CNF Value)
Customs Value (US$) = 18756.78 US$
Exchange Rate (Rs.) = 104.70 (Let Suppose)
Customs Value (Rs.) = 1963835 (18756.78 X 104.70)

Import Customs Duty Calculation

Once we calculated the customs value of goods in Pak Rupees, so simply take customs value with the duty percentage of your products, In our example product is PLASTIC GRANULES (HS Code:3901.9000) and its customs duty is 5%.
Customs Duty (Rs.) = 98191 (1963835 X 5%)
As a commercial importer, we pay extra 1% Addition Customs Duty. 
Additional Customs Duty = 19638 (1963835 X 1%)

How to Calculate Sales Tax of Imported Goods.

We will add customs value, customs duty, and additional customs duty, after adding all these values simply take 17% from this calculated value.
Customs Value (Rs.) = 1963835
Plus: Customs Duty (Rs.) = 98182
Plus: Additional Customs Duty (Rs.) = 19637
Total = 2081654
Sales Tax (Rs.) = 353881 (2081654 X 17%)
We also pay extra 3% Addition Sales Tax, due to being commercial importer
Additional Sales Tax (Rs.) =  62449 (2081654 X 3%)

How To Calculate The Income Tax Amount For Import Goods.

To calculate the income tax amount, simply add customs value, customs duty, and additional customs duty, sales tax, and additional sales tax, once added all value take 6%.
Customs Value (Rs.) = 1963835
Plus: Customs Duty (Rs.) = 98191
Plus: Additional Customs Duty (Rs.) = 19638
Plus: Sales Tax (Rs.) = 353881
Plus: Additional Sales Tax (Rs.) = 62449
Total = 2497994
Income Tax (Rs.) = 149879 (2497762 X 6%)

Total Customs Duty & Taxes of Import Cargo

Finally! we have calculated the customs duty and other taxes such as sales tax and income tax,
Customs Duty (Rs.) = 98191
Additional Customs Duty = 19638
Sales Tax (Rs.) = 353881
Additional Sales Tax (Rs.) = 62449
Income Tax (Rs.) = 149879
Total Duty & Taxes = 684038
