Hi Tracy,
The short answer is ‘no’ as the Customs value will be based on the amount shown in the Commercial Invoice for the goods. Your freight agent should confirm this for you including whether there is a chance of any additional inspection or clearance fees.

Interesting, am a little intrigued.. Albeit, i am a little naive as well :) although doesnt a Commercial Invoice (official doc) include COGS + Freight costs – therefore the total would exceed the $1K and therefore have duties and fees applicable?

Hoping some forwarders may shed some light on this..
