Hey guys,

I've added a product to my new store and it's asking for an HS Code for customs. I'm selling items like t-shirts and hoodies, but I cannot seem to find the correct HS Code for this.. can anyone help?

TIA!

Ben

This is an accepted solution.

Simple Answer:

No/Yes, depends

 

Advanced:

You need it if a certain $ Threshold is reached. If you import to the EU you need EORI. 

Usually, your freight company puts the "HS" on, but not really necessary for small amount delivery. 

 

Maybe you are shipping Pallets to Turkey, then Yes.

Hi @slimak ,

An HS Code is necessary when shipping cross-borders. I suggest you reach out to your Customs agency to process your request here and get them set. It will avoid headaches down the line.

Cheers!

@slimak 

Where are you located?

Just make sure you fully state on the Invoice:

1x Pullover, 80% Cotton 20% Wool, that's all you need. 

I am guessing you don't export 1000s of Items once, because you would not ask here.

Hi,

To find a garment's HS Code, try www.tarifftel.com

It provides hs codes for import and export and is easy to use by a non customs person. It's free for the first 10 or so codes but you do need to create an account.

If you are importing the goods it's your responsibility to get the hs/commodity code correct.  Import duty is dependant on the hs code and the items Origin (according to the "rules of origin"). Basically where the item was made not where it was shipped from.

Hope this helps.
