The U.S. Government has expanded the dollar limit by which shipments can be admitted to the U.S.A., under an administrative exemption i.e without duty, fee or tax and with a bare minimum of customs formalities.
The limit had been set at $200 (£155) for over twenty years but the trade facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015, signed into U.S. Law by the U.S. President, Inter Alia sets the new limit at $800.
Which goods are eligible?
All goods purchased by a single customer up to $800 for the fair retail value with the exemption being alcohol.
This means that the majority of Berk cashmere sweaters, shoes and accessories are exempt from Customs Duty.
