Orders of Amazon Global Store items that are shipped into Australia may be subject to taxes, customs duties, and fees (“Import Fees Deposit”), depending on their value.
For products which have a customs value greater than $1,000 AUD and shipments which have a combined value greater than $1,000 AUD, Amazon Global Store will estimate and collect the taxes, customs duties, and fees which may apply to your order. Amazon Global Store will also permit the shipping carrier to clear your shipment through customs on your (or your recipient's) behalf. For your convenience, Amazon will estimate and collect at checkout an Import Fees Deposit together with the item price, and such funds will be used by the carrier to pay the relevant taxes, customs duties, and fees on your behalf, to the appropriate authorities.
The Import Fees Deposit is an estimation of the taxes, customs duties, and fees that may apply and isn't an actual calculation of those charges, the actual charges may vary from this estimate. In addition, customs regulations, tax, duty, and fee rates applicable to certain goods may change between the order date and the date of entry.
Where your Amazon Global Store Order has a combined value greater than $1,000 AUD, and includes products which have a customs value of $1,000 AUD or less (low value imported goods or LVIG), both GST and an Import Fee Deposit may apply, but you will only be charged for the GST once.
Amazon Global Store orders which have a customs value of $1,000 AUD or less will not include an Import Fee Deposit, but will include applicable GST. See About GST on Low Value Imported Goods (LVIG).
