Customs Duty is calculated as a percentage of the goods value or Customs Value (CV) of your consignment. Depending on the products, the applicable duty rate can be anywhere from 0% to 10%, however most 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).
How the duty and GST is calculated on goods valued at AUD$1000 which attract a 5% duty rate would be:
|The Customs duty @ 5% of the AUD$1,000 (CV) =||$ 50.00|
|If the international transport and insurance (T&I) =||$ 150.00|
|Then the VoTI = (CV) + duty + (T&I) =||$1200.00|
|GST is 10% of the VoTI = 10% x $1200 =||$120.00|
|Total duty and GST Payable||$170.00|
