Information for the credit limit increase effective as at February 2022.

What is the legislative authority for this credit limit increase?

The Chief Executive has made this decision under section 123(2) of the Customs and Excise Act 2018. 

Why has Customs increased my credit limit?

Over the last few years businesses have adapted well to ever changing global supply chain challenges, which have included significant changes to the way they order goods. Customs has decided to increase selected credit limits that businesses hold with us to allow trade to flow more smoothly.
