Some Changes in the Law of Baggage Shipping in New Zealand!!

Jul 24th 2013 at 8:19 PM

The access baggage company always tries to keep you well informed of the all the updates regarding rules and regulations in the Law of Shipping baggage in New Zealand. Today we have received information by our agents in New Zealand, They informed us about the new Laws and Regulations which may affects you.


Today a resident arrives in New Zealand after its shipment of goods or product did, His shipment was imported by a foreigner resident, whose residential status was not finalized, hence a deposit was submitted to the New Zealand customs in the value of the tax and duty which concerns that if no concession were ever existed for that importer. At that time the importer was able to apply to have the deposit refunded once it has arrived at the residency status. This regulation is about to get change and is going to put in effect on 1st of December.

Excess baggage to NewZealand

What are the Changing being made?

If the importers of the goods doesn’t hold a document of authorized permanent residential address in New Zealand, or they haven’t arrived to the New Zealand at the time of importation of goods then the shipment of goods doesn’t qualify for concessionary entry.

If the concession conditions did not meets then the goods should be entered on import entry or duty entry, or if GST is still requires to be paid. Which means; later if importer even obtains a qualifying visa this revenue will not be refundable because at the time of importation, they didn’t qualified for the any type of concession so, revenue was not paid in error.

So what does this entire means?

This means you have to be in New Zealand at the time of your goods arrives, or other duties or GST will be charged on your shipment or consignment, Even if you managed to meet the criteria for tax and duty free entry of your goods. And if you arrived after your goods delivered then no concession will made for you, Not only that but you will also lose the right to reclaim any tax or duty paid during the time of entry of your goods.
