Default Re: Guide: Buying, shipping and customs for imported riding gear

Just as a warning note to anyone importing anything. You are now being charged customs and GST. And by default the customs dept seems to just write down the max of 28% GST on everything. So I would be really careful unless you're willing to fight it out at the department.

What do you mean ? Is the duty now 28% GST + 50% customs ?

Yes on the duty calculation sheet which the postman brings there is a separate entry for the GST
