Customs Clearance

Engage with an experienced customs broker to avoid delays and save money.

Seabridge offers the services of an in-house customs broker to assist with the clearance of individual shipments, or to facilitate clearance as part of a larger logistics solution.

There is much to learn when importing goods to Australia and engaging a knowledgeable customs broker is crucial to saving time and money. Australia’s strict quarantine laws work to protect our borders against exotic pests and diseases. Imported goods are also required by law to be assessed for duty, GST and other taxes, as well as in some cases community protection risks. The consequences for not adhering to these laws can be costly delays, but also significant fines and prosecution.

Customs Clearance

Seabridge customs brokers are fully government licensed and accredited to provide a full and comprehensive service to every Australian port and as part of a global network. Seabridge can facilitate the clearance of goods through customs and quarantine ports throughout the world. On your behalf, Seabridge will prepare the required documentation and/or electronic submissions, calculate (and facilitate payment of) taxes, duties and excises, and communicate with the relevant government authorities for hassle-free clearance of your goods.
