From 1 October 2018 Customs will have a new Act. The changes mainly affect our business customers. Find out what this may mean for your business.
Export payments and refunds
When you export anything, you must pay an export entry transaction fee or an outward cargo transaction fee.
Export entry transaction fees
- NZ$12.01 (including GST) – items you’re exporting under the Secure Exports Scheme (SES)
- NZ$17.94 (including GST) – items you’re not exporting under an SES.
Outward cargo transaction fees
- NZ$11.51 (including GST) – every ECI for items you’re exporting by air
- NZ$28.83 (including GST) – every ECI for items you’re exporting by sea.
If you re-import items for which you claimed a duty/GST refund or drawback, you must pay the usual duty and other applicable charges.
