    Default Import Duties

    I'm about to order a Uniden radio from Amazon.
    Can anyone tell me the cutoff point for having to pay duty.
    Looking at 2 items, one at NZ $650, another at $400.

    If it's under the threshold then no duty is payable but you will have to pay 15% GST on each item.

    Amazon will add the gst when you pay for it

    Also, some things still have duty , even if below $400 . Not many things it that category though .
    Its more a tarrif on certain imports

    Ordered yesterday.
    Got email today, advising delivery May 17.
    That would be a new record from the US.
    I'll believe that when it happens.
    Still waiting for an item bought on eBay 2 months ago.

    Bet any hold up will be once it arrives in Auckland Lately anything ordered from Aliexpress takes 10-12 days, takes longer to get from Auckland to Wellington than to NZ.
