Information International rules and organizations Incoterms 2000 [iNKOTERMS 2000] Term D Delivered Duty Paid - DDP

DDP(Delivered Duty Paid (... named place of destination))
Delivered Duty Paid (...named place of destination)

The term "Delivered Duty Paid" means that the seller delivers the goods, cleared for customs and not unloaded from the arriving means of transport, at the disposal of the buyer at the named place of destination. The seller must bear all costs and risks associated with the transportation of the goods, including (where applicable) any fees for importation into the country of destination (the word "fees" here means the responsibility and risks for carrying out customs clearance, as well as for paying customs formalities, customs duties, taxes and other charges).
While the EXW term places the minimum obligation on the seller, the DDP term assumes the seller's maximum obligation.
This term cannot be used if the seller cannot, directly or indirectly, obtain an import license. If the parties have agreed to exclude from the seller's obligations some of the costs payable upon import (such as value added tax - VAT), this should be clearly defined in the contract of sale.
If the parties wish the buyer to assume all risks and costs of importing the goods, the term DDU should be used. This term can be used regardless of the mode of transport, but when the delivery is made on board a ship or at a quay in the port of destination, the terms DES or DEQ should be used.
