Need to know more about customs duty import taxes in Australia?

In Australia, imported goods are categorised according to the Australian Government's customs tariff and may be subject to customs duty.

Most general cargo is charged a standard rate of 5% import duty based on the FOB (Free On Board) value and 10% of import GST based on the CIF (Cost, insurance and freight) value plus duty.

We will review all duty & tax concessions to reduce the amount of duty to be paid (excludes alcohol and tobacco).

Importing goods internationally of a value less than $1000 AUD?

For goods with a value of AUD$1,000 or less that are imported, there is typically no requirement to pay import duties or taxes. However, this rule does not apply to alcohol or tobacco imports.

Importing goods internationally of a value over $1000 AUD?

For goods exceeding the value of AUD$1,000, it is necessary to submit an Import Declaration for your shipment. This process incurs a processing charge, and in addition, you will be obligated to pay duties and taxes.
