When importing goods into Australia, they must be declared using the correct forms and the appropriate tariffs paid. Understanding the duties and tariffs that are applicable on imported goods can be confusing and time consuming to decipher. Our team will assess your shipment for duties, Goods and Services Tax (GST) and other taxes to ensure your commitments are met. We can also provide advice during the costing stages of a project which can be useful when determining the viability of importing products for re-sale.
As well as ensuring you have the right documentation and permits, we will work with you to minimise the duty and GST payable through tariff concessions.
