customs import charges 

Any shipment valued over $1,000AUD (value of the goods) will incur Custom Taxes, Import Taxes, GST and other duties regulated by Australian Federal Law.

Some of our sales may incur Duty, Taxes and other charges depending on the Import regulations of your country (the value of the goods and so on).  

As the recipient, you are liable for all import duties, customs and local sales taxes levied by the country you are shipping to. Payment of these is necessary to release your order from customs on arrival. We are unable to advise the amount this may be as order values vary and destination country rules and regulations apply.

Once we have received notification from Customs with the duties charge DPA Baseball or Customs will notify you. To ensure the earliest possible delivery of your order, please pay the amount supplied to you. Shipment will not be released until the full payment of the duties charges are received.

Here is an estimation of the type of charges and fees you will have to pay - 

  • Import entry costs and processing charges - Customs will charge you a fee (typically under $200 AUD) for processing your goods.
  • Customs import duty is calculated as a percentage of the price you paid for the goods. The duty rate can range from 0% to 10%, but the rate for most goods is 5%.
  • Goods and services sales tax (GST) will also be charged based on the following:
    • The valuation of the goods plus;
    • The customs import duty amount plus;
    • The cost of insuring the goods and transporting them to Australia.
    • GST is charged at 10% of the final amount.

This is just intended as a general guide - These charges can be influenced by what you’re bringing in, excise taxes, free trade agreements, and many other factors.
