Looks like the government has stalled on the tax's introduction.. citing ebay threatening to geo-block Australian buyers from international sites.. Now that would piss off a few here.. but Ebay is not the only seller in the market.and with Amazon coming and building here.. .. whats the bet a tax is on the horizon..

I have no issue at all on paying the 10% GST on everything I buy regardless of value.
It's all the other arsehole-fees & charges that they add on to taxable items over their threshhold that they need to abolish.
With that, they'd actually have more tax payers, more tax, and less people like me, who legally, within their own rules, side step them because of those extra charges.

Most things have Duty plus GST. But yeah the other fees are a killer.

You can work it out here :

But use the calc wisely - they charge you after the first freebie.

Most things?
Duty is to protect local produce, and now that we make fxck all in this stupidly run country, I figured duty would be on much less.
Been a while since I've paid it.

The eBay/Netflix tax is something different and basically requires overseas companies providing services here to pay GST on their service fees. This applies only to eBay seller fees in the case of eBay, but is obviously something that sellers will need to pass on.

Hopefully the dopes in Canberra have realised that the cost for the army of public servants [ & their office space ] to collect the money.................will cost more than they collect....

Maybe said dopes should be asking WHY does something that sells for $100 in the US costs $300 here????? Why does a cartridge of high temp Loctite silicon costs $10 from Summit & the same product is $37 at Repco???

If we were not being ripped off here, we would not need to buy as much from overseas.

where's this import duty stuff all at now?
i was looking at getting a set of sbc heads very soon thru summit, ie later this week...
am i better to buy singularly to stay under 1000$ limit or buy both together and risk it?

single 709.50$ + 144$ i-parcel postage = 854$
or
together 1419$ + 274$ i-parcel postage = 1693$
only 15$ difference buying separately.

thoughts?

I'd buy them separately and wait for the first one to arrive before ordering the second or send them to two different addresses and I assume you are working in Australian dollars and not US ones.

Mate bought some engine parts recently from Summit, was just over $1000. Had to pay gst, & I think he had to pay gst on the shipping also.

GST = Goods and Services Tax.

Shipping is a service, therefore, it is taxed.
