I've been agonising about buying a phone from the Dick Smith NZ website.

 

There's a few threads on here about the perils of importing, and hitherto the limit was $400, after which you got clobbered with GST, Import Duty, and various fees.

 

As from the 1st Dec last year they've increased the threshold to $1000.

 

 

<i>"Customs will not collect GST, duty or charge an Import Entry Transaction Fee (IETF) on goods valued $1000 or less, unless the goods are part of a large consignment.

 

This does not apply to tobacco and alcohol products - duty and GST are collected regardless of the value.  

 

If you buy goods valued over $1000, you'll have to pay duty and GST plus the IETF and MPI levy when the goods arrive in NZ.</i>

 

 

 

 

This calculation is an estimation only and applies to goods imported for personal use after 1 December 2019.

Think you will find that DS/Kogen will charge you GST at checkout as has been the requirements for larger online retailers since 1 Dec 2019. If so there will be no further duty to pay on arrival.
