Yes, but the invoice will actually come from the carrier / freight forwarder. They must send you the invoice and the calculation sheet showing how the charges were assessed. This document is called the Customs Entry. You as the importer of record, are required to keep it for 7 years. The GST can be claimed on your BAS. The duty, if any, and the entry fee(s) are expenses. The carrier will probably demand payment prior to delivery, and then email you the tax invoice and customs entry shortly after.
