What Does a Customs Broker Do in Perth?

The main responsibility of a customs broker is to make it easier for products to be imported and exported by adhering to all applicable Australian customs requirements. Your customs broker will primarily act as an intermediary between you and the Australian government, but they will also: 

  • Assign your imports and exports the proper tariff classification
  • Get the paperwork ready and deliver it to the Australian Border Force (ABF)
  • Deposit import declarations, licenses, certifications, and other documents as needed to speed up the clearance procedure
  • Ensure adherence to national and international laws
  • Determine and pay all necessary taxes, tariffs, and fees on your behalf
  • Make sure you get the proper refunds when needed
  • Check the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and duty amounts are accurate.
  • In order to ensure adherence to all tax laws and obligations, communicate with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and other pertinent government offices
  • When necessary, facilitate quarantine clearance and communicate with Australia's Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Forestry (DAFF) about biosecurity
  • Give guidance on all facets of the import and export process, such as customs laws, tariff adjustments, free trade agreements, duty drawbacks, refunds, and other cost-saving strategies
  • Assist in the resolution of conflicts and the filing of appeals against customs rulings.

How long does customs clearance take in Perth 2023?

In Perth, customs clearance duration varies from a few hours to several days. If documentation issues arise or detailed inspections are required, the process may extend. Engaging a customs broker can expedite and streamline customs transactions.

How do I get custom clearance in Perth?

Obtaining customs clearance in Perth involves compliance with import regulations, and accurate documentation including a Bill of Lading or Airway Bill, a commercial invoice/packing list, and a properly filled customs declaration form. An import declaration must be lodged with the Australian Border Force (ABF), and duty, Goods and Services Tax (GST), and other taxes paid. The ABF may inspect goods to verify declaration information and check for prohibited items. After inspections and fee payments, goods are released by customs.

Do you have to pay for customs clearance in Perth?

Customs clearance in Perth and across Australia typically incurs costs, including duties based on the type and value of goods. A Goods and Services Tax (GST) of 10% applies to the taxable importation value, which includes the customs value of goods, any duty payable, and transport and insurance costs. Hiring a customs broker for managing the process also requires payment. Additional costs may include storage, delivery, inspections, and more fees.

How much does a customs clearance agent or broker charge?

The cost of a customs clearance agent or broker varies based on factors like shipment complexity, range of services provided, the value of goods, and whether the shipment is local or international. More complex shipments or those involving specific regulations may attract higher fees. Brokers offering comprehensive services including logistics, shipping coordination, and documentation assistance may charge more. Fees can also be based on the value of the imported or exported goods.
