Tariffs vary depending on the product type and market. Similar to import regulations, they're frequently revised and subject to change without notice. It's important to reconfirm tariffs before you start exporting.
Austrade provide up-to-date information on tariffs and regulations in your target market.
Generally speaking, products are identified by a system known as the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System or the Harmonized System (HS). The HS has been adopted as the basis for describing and classifying goods for customs purposes by most trading nations.
The Australian Government Free Trade Agreement Portal can help you determine your product's HS Code and find out if any tariffs apply.
