there's "blue book" in custom that have all the duty rate listed for all cars, twese government has website shows the calculation of the duty and tax, however is too complicated, so to roughly count should be around 60% on top of the car's current market value, this should include everything. every single car needs to be inspected (i waited 3.5 months inspection) and there are fees to it but different with different car brands, engine size...etc.
it is still cheaper than getting a car from autherized dealer in taiwan.
if you really want to import the car to taiwan, i recommend just hire a agent to do so, they will handle everything til your car gets the plate.
and im not sure about the duty rate for mainland china, but i know it is higher than taiwan.
