Do I really need a custom-clearing agent such as SP Customs?

While the temptation to mitigate an extra cost by importing or exporting on your own is always there, we are here to offer some hard truths. There is a plethora of government regulations and intricate laws you need to be well aware of in order to minimise the potential of costly delays or errors when clearing customs, as the world of importing and exporting can be a tricky one, should you undertake it alone.

Ultimately, SP Customs wants to save you the headache.

Australia has very strict quarantine and shipping tariff regulations that should be dealt with by an experienced customs broker such as SP Customs, so engaging us is always recommended. As well as the possible hurdles listed above, imported goods are also required by law to be scrutinized and officially assessed for a number of other issues such as duty, GST, and other taxes your goods may incur. Without the right knowledge or shipping solutions, clearing customs really can be a difficult proposition, so that’s why it is imperative to at least consult with us before deciding to import or export out of the country. We will handle all the required paperwork, the challenges around duties, possible taxes, required permits, as well as satisfying all the appropriate government bodies to guarantee a trouble-free clearance of your precious goods.

As part of our service, we will ensure the following:

  •     All the appropriate lodgement of required import declaration forms to the ACBPS (Australian Customs and Border Protection Service) are ticked off
  •     Streamline the electronic clearance regulations and conditions involved with your shipment
  •     Liaise with the Department of Agriculture in order (if required) to obtain a quarantine clearance for your shipment
