Import Processing Fee Increase

Dec 04

Further to our advice earlier this year. The current bill is currently under debate in the Australian parliament and the latest is that the debate was adjourned until parliament resits later this month. These new charges are still more than likely to come into effect on 1 January 2014. These are summarised as per below;

The current charges that you would be used to receiving from Australian customs are:

  • 88.00 for the first container and 24.00 per container thereafter.
  • 70.00 for LCL; and
  • 55.20 for airfreight


From 1 January for consignments over AUD10000.00 in invoice value the following charges will apply.

  • $190.60 for the first FCL and $24 per container thereafter;
  • $172.60 for LCL; and
  • $137.10 for airfreightd


The increase therefore to the importer is :

  • $102.60 for FCL & LCL shipments
  • $81.90 for Airfreight shipments.


These increases are regulatory disbursement charges which are passed on at cost at time of clearance and payable to the Australian government bodies.
