Accounts and Payments

I believe the sender is paying all charges

In order for FedEx to invoice the sender for all charges incurred on a FedEx shipment the sender needs to indicate 'Bill Sender' for both Transportation and Duties & Taxes on the FedEx international air waybill.

In the vast majority of cases the sender will only take responsibility for the Transportation charges and if they do not select a billing option for Duties & Taxes on the FedEx international air waybill.

The default will be Bill Recipient for any Duties & Taxes levied on the importation, in the majority of cases when the shipper has made payment to FedEx this only relates to the Transportation charges.

In addition Duty &Tax charges are not assessed until the shipment enters the destination country so FedEx is unable to advise the sender of the import Duties &Taxes at the time the shipment is sent.
