  16. seems clear enough you pay https://www.customs.govt.nz/personal/move-to-nz-permanently/vehicles-boats-and-planes You can get a “household items” concession if: you’re moving to NZ, or moving back after 21 months or more away, and you’ve used the items for their intended purpose. This means you won’t have to pay GST and duties on some items. You can also get concessions on: private vehicles, including: motorcycles cars scooters motorhomes camper vans ambulances boats aircraft. If you don’t qualify for concessionsIf you don’t qualify for concessions, you will have to pay: GST on motorcycles, cars and planes GST and Customs duty of 5% on private boats (yachts and other vessels for pleasure or sport) New rules 1/12/19 buying online subject to gst regardless of value.

    surf clams most likely exported,what you get in the supermarket are dredge cockles and we all know the beds are thinning,lots of AK beach get closures.There was a bay on Ponui island that produce 50mm/70mm cockles right through the 70s well in to the 90s.Went back in 2012 and nil,what we found was a black sludge which has since found out is sediment washed from the beachlands area and even dredging silt from pine harbour,speaking of which since pine harbour has gone in the little island to the south of pine harbour had sweet mussels. The mussels there now will make you crook.The beach south of beachlands Te puna?? had cockle right up to early 2000,now nil and black sludge.
