Received the First Notice from Australia Post ?
You have been expecting your international parcel to arrive and instead you receive from Australia Post, notification that your parcel is being held by customs.
The most common reasons that parcels are being held by customs is they may want to inspect the item further or that you need to pay import duty. For goods with a value equal to or less than AUD1000 there are generally no duties, taxes or charges to pay. You will need to pay duties and taxes on some goods (like tobacco, tobacco products or alcoholic beverages) regardless of their value.
In most cases, all that customs will require from you is confirmation that the value of your parcel is of below $1,000.00 you may need to provide evidence of your payment receipt of your parcel purchase.
However if your parcel has a value of more than $1,000, you will need to customs clear your parcel with a formal customs clearance declaration.
The declaration will be assessed for Duty,Goods & Services Tax (GST). You will need to lodge the import declaration with Australian Customs and then pay the calculated amounts before your parcel will be delivered to you.
