What's My Duty estimator

Customs duty estimator is the easy way to estimate how much duty and/or GST you may need to pay to Customs if you're buying goods or receiving gifts from overseas.


  • Customs doesn't collect duty or other fees if you bought goods valued less than NZ$1000, unless it's part of a large consignment or it's alcohol or tobacco products.
  • If you bought goods valued over NZ$1000, this estimator will tell you how much duty/GST you might have to pay.

Customs will not collect GST, duty or charge an Import Entry Transaction Fee (IETF) on goods valued $1000 or less, unless the goods are part of a large consignment.

This does not apply to tobacco products and the like and alcohol products - duty and GST are collected regardless of the value. Further information on the amount of duty and GST payable on alcohol and tobacco products can be found at Allowances and charges.

If you buy goods valued over NZ$1000, you'll have to pay duty and/or GST when the goods arrive in New Zealand. You will also need to apply for a Customs Number if you don't already have one. The Import Entry Transaction Fee (IETF) and the Biosecurity System Entry Levy (BSEL) have not been included in this estimation. For information on the IETF, visit the Goods Clearance Fee page. For information on the BESL, visit MPI’s website.
