“The most you’ll pay – in addition to what you would pay when doing it yourself – is just $37*.
This is because we electronically customs clear your goods, which only attracts a $50 Gov. entry fee, but if you lodge it yourself then Customs manually processes it and charges you a $90 fee, hence you save $40 by using a Customs Broker.”
For this $37 you will:
a) Receive the goods in your hands up to 9 business days earlier.
b) Not need to fill out the B374 or classify the goods.
c) Waive the liability to penalty (up to $2,550 fine) for lodging a false or misleading declaration.
Our Mission: To legally exempt clients from every possible cost.
*Customs clearances up to 3 classification lines.
1.5% c/card surcharge applicable on all fees.
All postal consignments with a value under AUD $10,000 that are lodged electronically by a Customs Broker will incur a $50 customs entry fee. This fee is levied by Customs for every electronic entry lodged.
It’s a government fee that’s charged for the upgrade and maintenance of their Integrated Cargo System (ICS). The ICS is the electronic infrastructure that regulates and monitors the movements of all imported and exported cargo.
Self-lodgement of a B374 / N10 Import Declaration attracts a $90 fee.
Customs Duty is determined by the type of imported goods and the availability of relevant concessions, the duty rate can be anywhere from 0% to 10%, however the standard rate for most goods is 5% (before concessions).
Customs GST is calculated at 10% of the Value of the Taxable Import (VoTI). Please refer the below practical example for a full calculation explanation.
Our $77 clearance fee includes up to 3 different tariff classifications.
Additional classifications are $5.50 each per entry line. This is due to the labour intensive nature of product evaluation and tariff classification, as Customs Brokers are legislatively obligated to individually assess each and every product in your consignment.
All brokerages charge similar fees.
Note: Customs legislation defines “tariff classifications” according to the products essential character, not the quantity. For example, if your consignment contains: 3 x men’s analogue watches, 5 x metal photo frames and 2 x tennis racquets (all with different styles/colours etc.); then you will have 3 tariff classifications, not 10.
