Import Duty Cases Perth Customs and Trade Lawyers

Customs Act 1901, Excise Act 1901, Customs Tariff Act 1995

We provide businesses with advice on compliance with customs related law. 

We provide advice in relation to dealings with Australian Border Force as to the correctness of information provided and we can make recommendations to ensure compliance where there are allegations on misclassification of goods, incorrect use of Tariff concession order or under valuations.

Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.  

Further information can be found here regarding our fixed fees.

We advise on all aspects of:

  • import and export of goods, including classification and quotas;
  • customs valuations;
  • country of origin issues;
  • applications for repayment or remission of duties;
  • waiver or mitigation of penalties;
  • appeals against customs decisions;
  • duty suspension;
  • innovative customs management; and
  • duty reduction initiatives.

Penalties may be substantial for some breaches of this legislation.  Penalties of in excess of $100,000 are not uncommon.  We can prepare a plea in mitigation when mistakes have been made in order to assist you in minimizing any fines.
