Activity Centre number as well. (Example: 99 123 456 789 / 001); or

You must tell us the name and address of the person or company who sent the parcel/s to you. If you purchased goods from an internet auction
site and you do not know the seller’s address mark the address field with the seller information – for example – ‘Ebay Seller US’ or ‘Ebay Seller
Japan’ – do not leave this section blank. If known, you must provide your supplier’s CCID.
Parcel(s) Information
MAIL REFERENCE – You must record the mail reference number here. You will find this reference number on the Australia Post First Notice at the
top right of the page near the bar code. The reference number begins with N, Q, V or W. If you have more than one reference number, regarding
parcels from the same supplier you can include those numbers in the additional information box on page 2 of the import declaration.
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN – If known, you must tell us the country of origin of the goods. Country of origin means the country where the goods were
made, grown, produced, mined, etc which may not be the same country from which the goods were exported to Australia. If you do not know the
country of origin mark this section as ‘not known’ – do not leave this section blank. (A reduction in the duty payable applies to certain countries of
origin; no reduction will be applied if you have marked this section ‘not known’.)
DATE OF EXPORT or INVOICE – you must tell us the date the parcel/s was/were posted from overseas (that date may be shown on the Australia
Post First Notice). If you do not know the date of export please record the date of purchase shown on your invoice.
WEIGHT OF PARCEL/S You must tell us the total weight of the parcel/s (it may be shown on the Australia Post First Notice). If you do not know
the weight then mark this section ‘not known’ – do not leave this section blank. You must also tell us the number of parcels.
Parcel(s) Contents
DESCRIPTION OF GOODS – You must be specific and describe the goods in a clear manner. For example, 12MP digital camera, a 92 cm digital
television, a notebook computer, a silk and lace wedding dress. It is not acceptable to use terms like; gift, present, goods, equipment, gear, kit,
donation and apparatus – if you use such terms there will be a delay in clearing your goods (see example below).
CLASSIFICATION OF THE GOODS – You must classify your goods in accordance with the Customs Tariff Act 1995 (the Tariff).
You may use the short Tariff (commonly imported items) included as part of the Notice to Importers provided by the Department of Immigration and
Border Protection (the Department) (also at www.border.gov). That notice tells you what you should do if you require assistance to classify your
goods. You must provide the 8 digit Tariff number plus the 2 digit statistical code number. The tariff number determines the rate of duty that
applies to your goods (see example below).
QUANTITY - You must tell us how much or how many of each item there is for each item you have listed (see example below) e.g. for wine 2.5L.
VALUE OF GOODS – You must tell us the true and correct value of the goods (that is the amount you paid for the goods) for each type of goods
you have listed (see example below – 2 digital cameras at US$700 ea.). The Department can demand to see your invoices or other evidence that
shows what you paid. Do not provide values you know to be incorrect (even when those values are provided by the supplier). Undervaluing goods
is an offence under the Customs Act 1901. Duty is calculated on this value.

CONCESSION (Optional) – You may include information that will help determine the correct duty, GST and other taxes and charges. If you know a
GST exemption code or an item number to Schedule 4 of the Tariff (or a by-law) that applies, you should record that information here. If you intend to
claim that a free trade agreement applies, you need to state that here and you must record the ‘country of origin’ in the Parcel/s information section
of the import declaration. You may be required to provide qualifying evidence for any concession you claim.
VALUE OF POSTAGE AND INSURANCE – You must tell us the true and correct amount paid for posting the goods to you and the amount paid
to insure the goods for carriage by post and you must indicate in what currency the amount was paid. GST is calculated by including the postage
and insurance charges with the value and the duty payable.

was paid, for example – $1,400 in US dollars.
