Ad Valorem Rate

Ad valorem taxes (mainly real property tax and sales taxes) in the context of Sourcing and Procurement are customs duties charged on the value of goods that are dutiable, irrespective of quality, weight or any other considerations. Ad valorem rates are a fixed percentage based on the value of the goods, as determined by the invoice cost.
