Accounts and Payments

What is the clearance administration charge?

FedEx pays the Duty and Tax charges on your behalf to ensure we can deliver your shipment as quickly as possible. This incurs an Administration charge of 2.5% of the combined Duty and VAT charge or CHF 23.70 (whichever is greater). This Administration charge is also referred to as an Advancement fee.

You can find more information on our Ancillary Services page.
