TARIFF CONCESSION ORDER (TCO)

In our competitive, regulatory, and international trade environment, importers can have difficulty in understanding their entitlements for Tariff Concessions and refunds.  We at Curlett Cannon & Galbell have the expertise to prepare successful Tariff Concessions Applications that can save you significant sums in import costs that you may have thought were out of your reach.  

The Tariff Concession System (TCS)  

Australian Customs Service state that “The TCS assists industry to become more internationally competitive and reduces costs to the general community by the reduction of duties where there is no local industry to protect.  Customs objective is to make Tariff Concession Orders (TCOs) where the criteria for issuing those Orders are met, while administering the TCS in an efficient and effective manner, and providing well-reasoned decisions.”   For full details of TCS, visit the Australian Customs website  

WHAT IS A TARIFF CONCESSION ORDER (TCO)?  

The objective of the Tariff Concession System is to assist Australian industry in becoming more internationally competitive by providing concessions on duty for imported goods if substitutable goods are not produced in Australia.    Substitutable goods are defined as Australian-made goods that have a use corresponding to a use of the imported goods.  Therefore, where there is no local industry that produces those goods they may be imported duty-free via having obtained a Tariff Concession.  Certain classes of goods including foodstuffs, clothing and passenger motor vehicles are ineligible (‘excluded goods’).  

PROCESSING THE TCO APPLICATION  

Typically, the government has made this difficult and time-consuming for business owners, directors, managers to provide the supporting data and complete the application.   We being experienced specialist area, we undertake this complexity on your behalf.  We gather, collate, all the required technical, database research information and communicate with possible local manufacturers.  We then complete and submit the Tariff Concession Order application and constantly monitor and respond to Australian Customs queries and objections until finalisation.   You can download the application form (Form B33) from the Australian Customs and Border Protection website.
