    The Import Declaration is lodged here in Australia by the Broker after the goods have been shipped, it can be before they arrive or after so, The FOB price is the free on board price at the place of export, this is the price paid to get the goods on a plane or ship excluding any freight or insurance costs, at the port of export, Customs Duty at what ever rate, although now the general rate is 5%, unless they are free in their own right, come in under a Tariff Concession or under a FTA then duty will be NIL, is levied on the FOB price of the goods, Calculating duty and GST is as follows, So for example let’s say FOB price is AUD1000.00, rate is 5% Freight is AUD100.00 and insurance is AUD5.00 Customs Duty is at 5% on the FOB price of AUD1000.00 = AUD50.00 GST is calculated on VOTI, that is value of taxable import FOB price plus duty plus freight plus insurance = GST payable AUD1000 plus duty AUD50 plus freight AUD100 plus insurance AUD5 = VOTI total is AUD1155.00 at 10% = AUD115.50 GST payable, Trust this helps, Cheers Andrew

    An Import Declaration will have to lodged by a Licensed Broker with ABF for release, The Customs Value on which duty is levied, if payable, is different to that on the value on which the GST is calculated, GST is calculated on the VOTI, that is value of taxable import, this is: FOB price of goods plus duty if any plus freight plus insurance x 10% = GST payable Duties and GST are calculated on the AUD price using the rate of exchange the goods are shipped, NOT the day on which you make payment, You can only claim the AUSFTA if the goods qualify under the FTA and the seller supplies a AUSFTA Declaration as the broker will need this before they can lodge and claim, I certainly don’t lodge any US shipments claiming AUSFTA unless I have the declaration in hand...as compliance is more important than winning new business, If you are having it shipped say using UPS, FedEx or DHL, the shipping costs will include clearance and delivery, but they will want your payment up front before they pay ABF for release and chuck it in the truck for delivery, Trust this helps....
  6. Hi Folks, I was was planning on making a 2.40 AT screen using SMX material I ordered from Rubin well over 10 years ago, but looking at perforations I am convinced this material is unsuitable for 4K, which by the way is still in its box after all these years, and I am getting fat and lazy in my old age... So was thinking of contacting Seymour Screens and asking for a sample and a quote, and was wondering if anyone has one of their screens and if so any regrets? Maybe someone in Melbourne has one that I could perhaps see? I like their mounting method of using grommets to mount the screen to the frame...should be an easy installation even for someone like me, Otherwise I am open to anything local...screen size with a viewing area of 3840mm x 1520, non masking and non curved, PJ will be one of the JVC or Sony 4K units, Cheers, Andrew

    2019 projector releases ?

    Hmm...the NX9 is on sale for $21439.00
  9. I have the A51 and A21 and these things are velvet sledgehammers...😀
  10. Thanks Huxmut...not happy the internal width on the rack I like is 446mm so they won’t fit...but there is no way I would give up the Halo’s for any rack...
  11. Hi Folks, Is there a standard internal width for 600mm wide server racks, or do they all differ a little depending on the brand? I am considering one of these instead of making a flexi rack, but I am concerned my Parasound Halo amps with their side heat sinks may be too wide...they are just on 445mm in width, Does anyone have a A51 or A21 sitting inside a rack unit? Thanks and Cheers Andrew
  12. Thank you all for your recommendations...I better get to it then
  13. Oh bugger me it’s late and long day at work and my brain is mush... Any recommendations please for a LED strip light which i plan to run in a light tray around the perimeter of a bulkhead, What I am after is blue 240v strip light that I can plug into a socket, or I will have my sparky hard wire in, and it will be wired via a Clipsal Saturn switch, No interest in remotes, flashing lights, different colours or step down transformers, I need approx 21 meters and would like it to be continuous, if I have to go with a 25m and loose a few meters that is fine, but it has to be of good quality with a nice even glow...and not burn the house down, A lot of stuff on EBay ex China but some of it looks a little dodgy, Any info appreciated, Cheers Andrew..
