    Hi. Thanks for the above info. I still have some doubts. I tried the calculator, where in I’m ordering a musical instrument (Kalimba) from a US website and it’s worth 5700 including shipping. CTH, 92071000. Once I enter the assessable amount, in the Duty calculator section right in front of total duty, I see the duty amount as 1026. Does that mean, that’s all the charges I will have to pay?
