Re: 194624

Welcome to CF. Your number might have confused a few people, usually people are a bit more friendly on here.

Lots of Kiwis and Aussies on here, and I've seen that question asked before, if they don't reply, try a search on here.

There is no duty and 10% GST if you can prove that the boat was built in NZ. If it was built somewhere else then you will pay 5% duty plus 10% GST.

Err, maybe the thing to do is skip sailing and head back to the drawing board. Think footy. Play to your strengths. There's a world cup to be won.

Re: NZ to OZ: Import Duties & Passage Time

oops, couldn't think of any reason someone would leave NZ and go to Aus.

World Cup? thinking of renting the house out and going on holiday to avoid it.
