Bringing Baby Formula to SG - Allowed?

Post by daveco23 » Thu, 03 Sep 2015 12:40 am

Hi All,
A friend of mine with 6 month old Twins has asked me to buy a sizeable amount (20+ boxes) of infant formula while I'm abroad and bring it back into Singapore.
I've no problem with this, but am wondering what the allowances, if any are before I'd have to start paying tax at customs?
I've had a look at the customs website, and done an extensive google search, but I can't find a direct answer.
Anyone have experience of this?

Thanks!

If the value is over 400SGD you will have to pay 7% GST on the value of the shipment.
