Hi @jesuscruz97 The VAT type in the Landed Cost Code is used to record the additional fees like the import duties & taxes.

Thanks for your reply. I just don't understand what is the difference between the landed cost types. Is there any difference between them?  Does the VAT Landed Cost can be claimed in the Tax Report for that Tax Agency (which is the vendor of landed cost too)?

Why do I have to classify the Landed Cost as VAT Taxes is there is no difference between the types?
