All goods imported into Singapore are subjected to duties and/or GST. GST is calculated on the value which includes cost, insurance and freight plus the customs duty payable
(if any), unless the imported goods are for storage in a licensed warehouse or Free Trade Zone, or imported under the Zero GST Warehouse Scheme, or under the Major Exporter Scheme.
If you are a GST registered trader and have paid GST to Singapore Customs on your imports, you can claim input tax deduction in your GST returns submitted to the Comptroller of GST.
