Hi guys,
just purchased a Dakota Digital gauge set.
Do I have to pay duty on it, as it is made in the USA?

It's comes in over $1000 shipped unfortunately.
I was sent a notice in the mail last week from Aust post that I had to fill out a form etc.
I did this online, and I am awaiting a response, as I guess it will have to pay some money...... of course!
Just wondering if they were going to slug me with duty on top of the GST as well???

Duty? No because there is no Australian gauge manufacturer being protected and/or due to a free trade agreement..

Sales tax / GST?
Possibly. Yes if the goods and shipping are over a AU$1000.
No if they aren't.
If the shipping is not added into the cost of the goods, congrats on your freebie, but it's supposed to be as quoted from their website by Frank..

They will add other customs clearancing/arsehole fees..
Been there, done that.

Steve you have to be careful with that.

If there are local manufacturers here, it doesn't mean you can import it duty free straight away.

That scenario only helps you if you are applying for a tariff concession with customs, then you have to apply for it, spend 2000$ and hopefully get it

Hardly worth the time and effort for guys like us.

To claim US preference rates, the best way to do it is for you send your supplier/shipper a sample US- AU FTA certificate and let them fill it in.

On that form ,they can state the type of preference, with parts it will most likely be PS.

If anyone wants this form, let me know.

There are a lot of parts coming out of US that are not made in US, I've seen many times people trying to claim US preference rates on stuff that is made in China, shipped to US and then shipped here.

HS/Import code for gauges is 9026 1020 59 , US preference rates are applicable.

Yeah, when I get stuff from Summit, every part is listed and it's country of origin. Lots of stuff not made in the US now.

Pretty soon there won't be any local manufacturers in the US or here ...

Bring on 3-D printed parts !

People don't give a sh!t, Frank. They say they do, but then they shop for price or brand name and couldn't care less about origin.
Eagle are selling thousands of connceting rods while Childs and Albert and perhaps others went out of business 6-7 years ago.

People jump for joy with free-trade agreements because they'll save $1000 on a brand new fully imported Japanese car, and then wonder why the car industry here is fxcked.

The real patriotics are those who put their money where their mouth is by shopping for, and then paying the extra for locally made, or products made in countries who have similar living standards as us which help us maintain our living standards also..
If there's one thing I hate, it's those pretending to be patriotic with their Taiwanese made Aussie flags waving out the windows of their fully imported Hyundais on Australia day. Jerks.

Hahaha, I agree mate.

The problem is the government and assholes at the top.

Somebody stands to make a lot of money from FTA's but it won't be you or me and especially not our kids.

They are jumping mad for FTA's with Japan, China and South Korea, but nobody is saying what they are getting in return...

I used to be an import agent for one of the Australian big companies (let's say the name starts with Bunn...), after 15 years of having their logistics contract they canceled it and gave it to a Hong Kong based Chinese company.

I guess you wouldn't read about something like that in a newspaper.

True blue? It's all a joke.

Not just the car industry.......can't wait for that free trade agreement with China. Imagine all the cheap stuff we could get.
