    Default Duty on Alcohol

    We have just had the first of 3 shippers come round to give us an estimate. Still waiting for the final figures. He mentioned that our wine rack (all 12 bottles of cheap plonk) would attract duty if we brought it in the container. Has anyone got any idea how much duty would be charged? We don't really want to rush drink it but..........

    I'll post this link from the Custom's site . It gives a list of import charges for alcohol, but my tired brain can't latch onto whether these are payable only if you're having to pay GST on your belongings or if it applies across the board to anyone importing alcohol. Maybe it's for importers who want to bring alcohol into NZ to sell on.

    On here it says....

    If you do have dutiable goods in your shipment, you may be asked by Customs to supply documentary evidence (e.g. sales receipts, invoices, insurance papers etc.) to ascertain your ownership of the goods, period of ownership, and their value. There is no duty free entitlement for unaccompanied tobacco or alcohol, and there are restrictions or prohibitions on certain other items.

    Thanks for the link, MB. It looks as if we will only have to pay a small amount for our wine so we may bring a few bottles with us.
