The Customs and Excise Bill is currently awaiting its Second Reading in Parliament. Customs is working on draft regulations required for implementation of the Bill relating to duty drawbacks (refunds where duty-paid goods are later exported). We would welcome your feedback on this matter.

From 1 August 2017 exporters of indigenous timber will need to have a single use permit number to clear their export entries through Customs’ computer system.

The Customs rates of exchange for entries lodged on 14/08/2017 to 27/08/2017 (inclusive) to 28/08/2017 to 10/09/2017 are now available here.
