Audit, Compliance and Biosecurity

To succeed in a competitive global economy, companies must take advantage of every occasion to maximise cost reduction while ensuring regulatory compliance. The VoxTrade audit program will appraise a business’ transactions and reveal where savings can be realised and where compliance irregularities may cause financial or sanctions exposure.

VoxTrade audits review all customs compliance related matters, resulting in a tailored solutions focussed on the desired results the business wants to achieve.

Compliance Audit

The Government mandates that industry complies with customs-related law in all transactions involving the importation or exportation of goods to and from Australia, regardless of revenue (import duty, GST etc) risk. Customs is currently responsible for monitoring 26 separate pieces of legislation, all of which customs are able to audit all imports or exports against for compliance.

VoxTrade can conduct a ‘Compliance Audit’ under similar conditions, processes and methodology as would be the case should customs audit the client. The results of a full compliance audit will provide a compliance rating based on customs’ own audit parameters, a ranking on the Customs Compliance Continuum, and the likely customs operational response to that client, based on that ranking.

Tariff Audits

Alternatively, VoxTrade can audit a client’s transactions to ensure they are paying the minimum legal duty and based on the assessment outcomes, assist them in filing claims within the appropriate statutory time frames where refunds or credits are available. (See Tariff Classification and Tariff Concessions Section).

DAFF Biosecurity

Biosecurity is a critical link in Australia’s supply chain. Australia has some of the most advanced legislation and systems in the world for dealing with this aspect of trade and understanding a business’ obligations ensures forward planning to mitigate delays, unexpected costs, potential fines and prosecution.

Understanding the complex issues of biosecurity concerning packing and treatment requires specialist knowledge, an area VoxTrade excels in.

VoxTrade only uses DAFF accredited advisors to assist you in these matters.
