Custom tariffs

Custom tariffs are government levies on particular products entering a country, and are commonly used to protect local industries.

To determine specific tariff rates you will need to get the Australian 'Haromonized Commodity' (HS) Codes for the products or services you are considering exporting. The next step is to contact Austrade, which can assist you to find out the relevant tariff for the destination country.

See the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service website for detailed information on HS Codes.

Prospective exporters are also advised to contact the destination country's Customs Office for verification and information on any additional import regulations.
