Regulations for importing Personal Effects into New Zealand

Up to now, where a returning New Zealand resident arrived after their shipment did, or goods were imported by a foreign national whose residence status was not finalised, a deposit was paid to New Zealand Customs to the value of the duty and tax which would apply as if no concession existed for that importer. The importer was then able to apply to have that deposit refunded once they arrived or received residency status (assuming that they fulfilled the normal other criteria for duty and tax free importation).

This regulation is about to change and is put in effect on 1st of December. So what is changing?

If the importer of the goods does not, at the time of importation of the goods, hold a document authorising permanent residence in New Zealand, or they have not arrived in New Zealand at the time of importation of the goods then the goods do not qualify for concessionary entry.

If the concession conditions cannot be met then the goods must be entered on an import entry and duty and/or GST is required to be paid. This revenue is not refundable even if at a later stage the importer obtains a qualifying visa, as at the time of importation they did not qualify for the concession and therefore the revenue was not paid in error.

So what does that mean to you?

You must be in New Zealand when your goods arrive, or duty and/or GST will be charged on your shipment, even if you meet the other criteria for duty & tax free entry of your goods. No concession will be made if you arrive after your goods do, and you will not have the right to reclaim any duty or tax paid at the time of entry of your goods
