Hi Shopify Community,

 

Again - I posted a question earlier that was pretty rookie, this one is like rookieness on steroids... but a very real problem for me because I have stock landing in the next fortnight. Thanks for taking the time to read and respond.

 

I have approx US$15k (AUD$21k) worth of stock coming via TOLL from my Chinese manufacturer in the next 14 days. 9 boxes arriving all at once. 

 

1) Who do I pay my duty import tax to?

2) When do I pay it, upon receipt of goods, or does customs need payment before they release stock?

3) How do I pay it?

4) Am I better off using a broker - and how much do they cost?

5) Am I better off trying an Import Declaration online via ICS?

 

If you could get back with some detail generally on what worked for you and how it' much appreciated! Thanks again for your time!

 

Regards,

Jared

All,

 

Sincerely apologise! I was pulling my hair out for no reason. I have it sorted - turns out my manufacturer send via toll and I get notification upon delivery for which I visit TOLL and pay GST and duty on my stock for which they release. Apologies for all the silly questions.
