shipping tax

i wanna buy one guitar from japan ,
is there anyone know the tax will be how much ?
the price of the guitar is around 800 SGD,
Yeah, you pretty much need to pay tax for it, because anything exceeding the value of 400sgd will be subjected to 7% gst of the total price, so yeah you got your answer.
Not quite, you might just possibly pay GST just for the guitar alone. I think it depends how the seller bills it. Normally you pay the GST on delivery, to either UPS, FEDEX whomever guys came knocking at your door. If your given a delivery tracker number, it's also possible to call the local delivery office in advance to check on the GST amount to be paid.
