GST
« on: August 09, 2022, 03:23:50 pm »
How tight are people finding the GST net on imported parts at the moment.
I'm expecting some stuff shortly and wondered what my chances are of it slipping through unnoticed

Had to pay $280 GST on some clothes my wife bought which totalled $1050 in value.
Apparently they're much more keen if value is over $1k

I've had valuable car parts sail through a couple of times, you might be lucky!
Maybe they just pick on luxury goods, like $1000 rain jackets.

I've recently had low value items (under $500) from sale through.

If you buy from a large seller like Ebay, Amazon, Discogs et al they have all fallen into line and automatically add NZ GST  :(

The thresholds for grabbing GST have changed but it's still a crapshoot as to whether you get pinged or not.

Mine is a set of Bilsteins and are tax free (so far)
I have had a couple of other orders around the $400 mark slip through unscathed so fingers crossed

Phew!  Unless customs has taken to sending out accounts in arrears, I appear to have escaped the net ;)

Success! In my experience if you already have the thing you won't get a bill for it.

Usually anything under $1k nzd slides through and anything over gets banged. A lot of sites like Rock Auto, ebay etc are now automatically adding gst on

This was well over $1000 which is why I thought I would be pinged
