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 unaccompanied goods from overseas.
Unaccompanied goods are:
- goods bought via internet shopping, or
- goods bought overseas while on holiday but shipped back separately.
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 $1000, you'll have to pay duty and/or GST when the goods arrive in New Zealand. 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.
