Customs Clearance and Customs Broker FAQ's

Why have my goods been stopped by Customs?

Australia Post: All consignments with a value exceeding AUD 1,000 arriving via international post require customs clearance for border security assessment and the collection of relevant duties/taxes.

Air Freight: All consignments, regardless of value, arriving via direct airfreight require customs clearance for border security assessment and the collection of relevant duties/taxes.

In addition to the above, Customs will also stop your goods if they meet ANY of the below criteria:

- Contain Alcohol or Tobacco of ANY quantity or value.
- Contain any goods of Customs Interest.
- Contain any Customs Prohibited or Restricted Imports.

Note: The above is a guide only. Even if your goods do not meet any of the above criteria, Customs still maintains the right to hold and inspect any goods at their sole discretion.

How is Duty and GST calculated?

Customs Duty is calculated as a percentage of the Customs Value (CV) of the imported goods. Depending on the product, the applicable duty rate can be anywhere from 0% to 10%, however the majority of goods attract a 5% duty rate.

Customs GST is calculated at 10% of the Value of the Taxable Import (VoTI). The VoTI is calculated by the addition of the Customs Value (CV) PLUS the Duty PLUS the value of the International Transport and Insurance (T&I).

What are Customs Brokers?

When you import goods into Australia valued over AUD 1,000 then you’re required to lodge a formal import declaration. Customs brokers electronically lodge these declarations for you to ensure your compliance with the relevant import legislation applicable to your imported goods.

This covers all government legislation relating to the Australian Border Force (ABF or Customs), the ATO, Department of Agriculture and Water Resources (DAWR or Quarantine), CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora), Department of Infrastructure and any other relevant legislation that may be applicable to your particular imported goods.

Why use a Customs Broker?

Because a good customs broker will save you time and money, typically more than you pay them. While it’s not mandatory to use a customs broker to clear your imported goods, in most cases it’s certainly beneficial as outlined below.

SAVINGS: Customs brokers work to ensure you’re paying the least amount of duty/GST that’s legislatively permitted for the specific circumstances of your importation. And there’s many avenues available for us to do this.

For example, over 83% (avg.) of our postal import clients pay less to use us than self-lodgement of a B374 - Import Declaration (N10) – Post form.

TIME: We provide electronic customs clearance processing which is significantly faster than self-lodgement of an import declaration as this is a manual documentary process.

For example, we clear postal consignments in just 3hrs, but self- lodgement takes customs 8-10 business days to process.

SIMPLICITY: With customs brokers, you simply provide your import documentation and they do the rest. With eCustoms broker it’s even easier as you can submit online in just 5mins.

Self-lodgement requires you to complete the import declaration yourself, including applying the correct valuation and classifications of the goods based on your specific import circumstances.

LIABILITY: Using customs brokers also protects you from the risk of liability for lodging an erroneous import declaration, which can be anything up to a $12,000 strict liability fine.

The bottom line is that if you’re not 100% confident that you understand the legislation and know exactly what your lodging in your declaration, then you should use a customs broker.

What happens after Customs Clearance?

Australia Post: Once you receive the release emails from us, your consignment is “Customs Cleared” and our servers automatically notify Customs of the release. Customs then generates a release report at midnight on the day of clearance and Australia Post is notified on the next business day to deliver your goods.

Air Freight: Once cleared, you’ll receive a release email including full collection instructions. You simply follow the instructions in the email to collect your goods from the nominated airline bond.
