Yes, if the value of the guitar+freight is over $1000. Duty plus GST is worth 15.5% of the value of guitar+freight, plus you will to pay for customs clearance (unless that is included in the freight charge by your shipper). You may have a quarantine inspection (not common, but not entirely rare either) and if so you have to pay for this as well.
Happy to help - I've imported a few!manhhung wrote: ↑Sun Sep 03, 2017 11:50 amThanks Peter for your importing information. I looked at the customs website for ages and couldn't work out the costings. Apparently importing stringed instrument that is played with a bow is duty free. I should have asked forum in the first place. Your Kellaway guitar looks interesting. I am having a look on internet about different guitars and may get back to you about that.
