    Aruba import tax

    Does anyone happen to know where i can get information on the duties one has to pay for importing items to Aruba? I am planning to ship a container over , but i am worried that the tax will be high on certain goods, like electrical, i.e cooker/fridge/small electrical items? Furniture? wood flooring/tiles?
    Has anyone encountered very high duties on particular items?

    Thank you for any responses!!

    This might be what you're looking for: Necessities of life are taxed at a rate of 0 to 12% while luxury items have a higher rate.
