I want to import some goods into Australia? What is involved?
When importing goods into Australia, there are a few things to consider. Of course, you can call our office on 07 4771 5422 with any questions. In the meantime, here are some of the things you will need to consider:
Your goods need to be labelled correctly, particularly if they are going to be re-sold to a customer. A good place to start is the www.business.gov.au website.
Depending on the value of the goods you are importing into Australia, there maybe duties payable to the Australian Government, or you maybe eligible for a concession. To find out more click here.
Some items are required to be quarantined before they can be released. To find out more click here.
Townsville Customs and Forwarding Services can assist with importing goods via any port in Australia including Townsville, Cairns, Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin and more. Depending on whether your goods are coming via sea or air freight, will depend on what notification each port will require. You will need to consider freight arrangements from the port of entry to your site.
Goods imported into Australia over the value of $1000AUD will require customs clearance by a licenced customs broker. John Moore is a licenced customs broker and can assist with this. To learn more click here.
