There are a few ways to avoid paying GST (Goods and Service Tax) in Singapore if you plan to import goods to Singapore via SindoShipping as long as the goods intended to other countries other than Singapore.
Few ways are to make a purchase less than SGD 400 (via courier) it is CIF (Cargo, Insurance, Freight) whereas the invoice of the goods maximum plus the insurance amount and the freight charges amounting to maximum SGD 400. If you purchase goods more than that price, expect to pay 7% tax on top of the CIF amount (whereas it still less than paying tax in Indonesia when importing goods to).
In Indonesia, the total tax for a personal item can be amounted to up to almost 40 percent of the total CIF. It is so high as there are many taxes that need to be paid if you are representing personal purchase and not company purchase.
Another way to avoid tax is to send your order to our shipping partner address in Singapore address as our partner able to issue the export permit to claim the tax to the Singapore government, every good that imported to Singapore must have import permit inclusive the 7 percent tax that need to be paid, therefore, our partner company will be paying it on your behalf and when the goods are shipping out, the company will issue export permit to apply the GST back as the goods not to be consumed in Singapore and to the other countries.
