Due to the fluctuations in exchange rate, orders with value very close to the tax-free limit may be assessed Duties and Taxes (D&T) as the currency exchange rate may vary from the order date to the customs clearance date.
Please check with your local customs office in Australia to see if you can import the items, and if any additional licenses or permits are required
Starting July 1st 2018, the goods and services tax (GST) will be applied to any imported goods to Australia. The new GST will include charging all imported goods to Australia with a 10% tax on the retail price and on all items that are valued at $1000 Australian Dollar or less.
