Changes to Customs Import Processing Charges

We wish to advise that the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) has now released the much anticipated Australian Customs and Border Protection Notice No. 2013/63 (refer below link) advising of the increase to the Import Processing Charges (IPC) via a two tiered approach.

The Import Processing Charges Amendment Bill 2013 has been introduced into Parliament and is expected to be passed by both Houses of Parliament within the current sitting period.

Should the legislation be passed the new charges will apply from 1 January 2014.

Please take note of the new processing charges accordingly and please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
