Tax is 390.46%, OUCH!

A CIF Invoice Value of Imported Wine $100.00
B Tariff (Import Duty): A x 54% $ 54.00
C Excise Tax Paid: Excise Tax Rate x (CIF
value+import duty+excise tax paid+municipal
tax) or 1.7647059(A+:)
$271.76
D Municipal tax: C x 10% $ 27.17
E Health tax: C x 2% $ 5.44
F Value Added Tax: (A+B+C+D+E) x 7% $ 32.09
G Total Cost: (A+B+C+D+E+F) $490.46
Effective Duty and Tax Burden 390.46%

Well, get a tub of Vaseline, drop your pants, bend over and customs will take it from there....

Sorry, I am as frustrated as anyone about the wine import situation in Thailand. :)

that sounds about correct :D

..and remember that when you purchase next time a bottle of plonk @ 299 Baht...the CIF value was in that case little over the costs for the cork. :)

Good luck, I cannot describe the trouble I have gone to get a decent wine value in this country. But, I do keep trying.

So,I think it's better for me forget my idea to import wine,because in cause I do it,I will pay that wine more than one I can find here in the wine shop.
But Istill misunderstaind how the distributor can get the price lower than mine,because I mind the have to pay the tax and duty like me.
thanks to everybody for your answer
