Export repair customs advice?

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

Any advice on how to avoid taxes on repairs re entering Australia?

I have a Record cleaning machine I am sending to Sth korea for repairs and want to avoid GST when it comes back into Australia.

 

Thankyou

 

Peter

Shouldn't be an issue @petng.

Warranty repairs are exempt from gst and duties when being shipped back into the country.

Just make sure it is labeled as such when shipped back and you have the appropriate paperwork to prove it's a warranty repair as they might call you to question it. :thumb:

Is there any special forms that need to be filled prior to shipping out of Australia?

I don't believe so.

I think it just needs to be listed on the shipping declaration coming back in.

Might be worth giving Australia Border Force a call to confirm.

Don't know of any, peter - but I suggest you write on the shipping label "For Repair" - and then take a photo of it, for future 'proof'.

I have a repair coming back from Singapore later this month.Regarding shipping the dealer gave me his TNT account number and was sent back at his cost.I don't plan on paying any import tax.

BTW I once paid $880 GST for a laser record player from Japan . It broke within 2 weeks so when I sent back for a full refund I also applied and got back my GST money minus $120 admin fee.
