With minimal duties on most goods imported into Australia you may be deceived into believing it’s not important to your business, however have you considered how much additional sales you would need to turn over to increase your bottom line profit by 5%? The answer is generally that a significant increase would be required.
Where there is no local Australian production of substitutable goods you may be entitled to make application for a Tariff Concession Order that, if granted, will eliminate your import duty exposures.
