The Tariff Concession System (TCS) is designed to help industry become more internationally competitive. The system reduces costs to the general community by allowing duty-free entry for certain goods where there is no local industry that produces those goods. Certain classes of goods including foodstuffs, clothing and passenger motor vehicles are ineligible (‘excluded goods’).
A Tariff Concession Order (TCO) will be granted on imported goods if .
Substitutable goods are Australian-made goods which have a use corresponding to a use of the imported goods.
It is important to note that, in determining whether substitutable goods are available, the assessment does not consider whether the Australian goods compete with the imported goods in any market.
It is important to provide all information and relevant attachments. If you fail to meet all the requirements outlined in the form your application may be delayed or rejected.
We will walk you through the whole Tariff Concession Order application process. We will complete and submit all the required paper work, database searches and communicate with potential local manufacturers on your behalf.
