  • Customs $$$ Limit?

    Supplier is offering me a reduced invoice price for some parts I have underway from the states. Can someone confirm what the limit is before I get stuck with extra fee's?

    My memory says $1000, but can someone confirm? Should I just ask for it say $900?

    Amount is not just goods value.

    Good Value+Freight+insurance must be less than $1000.

    Get them to Mark the Invoice F.I.S
    You put the c*nt in country run

      Its a tough one really. The goods are for a fairing set which are free of charge replacement. But I'm stuck paying the freight. The freight is being paid through a local account which I am paying. So freight charge is based in Aus. But the invoice for the goods will be $XXXX, then -$XXXX as credit.

        All goods (except for tobacco products and alcoholic beverages) may be imported duty and tax free if their value is $1,000 or less.

          Thanks for the link JC.

          Should I ask the supplier to note on the invoice "warranty replacements"? Or the like? Given the invoice will read $0.

              Should be ex shipping.

              Limit is $1000 AUD

              Other things to watch for, if your shipping multiple packages they will combine the total of the value of the boxes.

              So if you have 3 boxes all valued @ $500 and they get them all within a very short time of each other they will add them up and bill you accordingly.

              They can also revalue a box at their discretion. So if the docket says $500 but THEY think its worth more they can approximate the cost of the item and charge you accordingly.

                Cheers guys,
                Fairings are getting picked up next week so give it a couple of weeks and they'll be back on the bike again.

                Fingers crossed it all goes smoothly
