It varies from IVA on used value to an accessed Lux tax which is much higher (this is on their experts valuation), I found it evened out as a table and 8 chairs I valued at $1000 USD, they accessed at $250 dollars at IVA rates, both were out as the accessor didn't know who Stickley was ......... $4500 in used hand tools, I valued at $1500, assessed for $2000 by them and I paid IVA rates, get a good agent....... I brought in a full 40 foot container several years ago, no electronics at al seems to be the key, a 65 inch tv, computers and stereos tend to raise red flags, household furniture and a couple of appliances seem to be much easier.........
I'm not from Chile. I'm just trying to ship regularly to Chile. I opened an e-commerce business (not in Chile, but shipping to Chile only). Do you know by any chance if I need a RUT number for my items to be delivered to Chile? Can I just use any other identification number, like a passport number?
