Short payments

Question ID: 26829

Assalam alaykum
. I have just engaged in seaport clearing agency insha Allah with the aim of observing shariat and sunnah. But I’m faced with the following questions.

1. short payment to the government custom duty is common is it allowed. short payment is paying for HONDA 1999 instead of 2003. majoriy does this and even the custom officers allows and overlooks this.

2. contracting the clearing out makes the case worse as they will hide the short payment
3. also in the clearing offices people pay some amount that are already normal things over there but are without receipts. are we allowed to pay such money when we don’t have options and its already their system. eg. a vehicle examination officer will not leave his office unless suchan amount is payed. no special treatment will be given for ones job except that its their norm.

4. police on the way also ask for money even after you have the correct papers. can we give
