Lodging of Import Declarations


It's a requirement to lodge an Import Declaration for imported goods within 20 days of those goods entering NZ.

In situations where a Broker has not received payment for their services from the importer, the Broker should still lodge an Import Declaration entry and select on the TSW lodgement the Customs method of payment as “Cash”.

When the Broker requires delivery, they are to email revenue@customs.govt.nz, include the JBMS lodgement number and request the lodgements method of payment be amended to Broker or Client Deferred.
