Introduction

With 85% of its population regularly using the web, Australia has great potential as an eCommerce nation. While 65% of adults shop online, 93% of its sales still come from tradtional brick-and-mortar business with only a handful of large Australian retailers selling online. This suggests there is a great potential for cross-border retaliers, especially as B2C e-commerce in Australia grew by nearly 16% in 2015.

Taxation

The taxation for a particular country depends on the local GST/VAT, as well as the item category and its declared value.

The tax & duty threshold is the amount at which a person begins paying taxes based on the declared value of an item.


CIF: import duty and taxes are calculated based on the sum of the customs value, shipping cost and insurance.

FOB: import duty and taxes are calculated only on the customs value of the imported goods.
