Has anyone a clear understanding of how these new rules work? Plenty of results on a search eg
but still not crystal clear.
My impression for items up to $1000
1. The big guys eg Amazon, Alibaba, Ebay etc will be GST registered and charge GST at source so nothing else to pay?
2. If the seller is not GST registered and the goods attract less than $60 gst & duty, then there is still no charge. Over this and the old rules apply and you will pay gst, maybe duty and the associated clearance fees.
3. If you use the NZ Post Youshop mailing service not sure if large retailers would charge GST?
I just brought some Jabsco stuff in from Defender, had miscalculated the landed value which was just over NZD$400 so copped the charges. Still alot cheaper than buying from Lustys.
Interested to hear other peoples experiences
