Besides, the cost we have charged you is including the tariff and other related taxes, without any additional fee included.

The easiest way is to search the commodity HS Code in Google. If you would like to know the more accurate HS Code for your commodity, you could browse the official portal of Royal Malaysian Customs Department and search the HS Code for the goods. However, please take note that the HS Code in the official website is only for reference, the accuracy is not assured. Instead, C.I.E.F can acquire the accurate HS Code for you through the official custom channel.
