How can I find the applicable duty & taxes in an overseas market?

You will need the Harmonised Tariff Code (HTC) to search for import tariffs on the World Trade Organisation website. If you don’t have the HTC, this can be obtained by contacting Department of Immigration and Border protection on 1800 053 016.

Your freight forwarder may be able to assist in finding the applicable duty and taxes in overseas markets.

You can also download export and import statistics for a specific product using the HTC on Australian Bureau of Statistics website.

Free Trade Agreements signed by Australia provide preferential tariffs to Australian exporters in certain markets. Please check the Austrade website for more information. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade publish the full text and related documents of Australia’s Free Trade Agreements.
