Customs clearance is a complex process. Clearing your imported and exported goods through Australian Customs and quarantine involves many regulations and different government departments. It often requires extensive documentation such as permits and certificates, ensuring that all customs and quarantine rules are met.
The primary customs authority in the country is the Australian Border Force (ABF) who are responsible for border protection. They regulate imports and exports at ocean ports and airports. The ABF have a broad range of powers under customs legislation, including searching and seizing your goods.
As you can imagine, dealing with these departments in Australia plus their counterparts overseas is a time-consuming and often confusing task. Any errors could lead to delays, fines, and other complications if you get the process wrong which could have serious ramifications for your business.
