    Hi,

    I plan to import clothing from Europe and I received a quote from a Freight Forwarder with the following note:

    Customs clearances includes 5 tarriff lines. Each tarriff line thereafter is AUD 5 per line + GST.

    If I import clothing from Europe in Cotton, Modal or Viscose, will 5 tarriff lines will be enough?

    Many thanks.

    Hi Julia,

    It will depend on what the clothing is actually classified as. As different items may fall under different tariff codes. If they are completely different with different materials etc then you may need more than 5 tariff lines for the customs clearance.

    Just to give you an idea. Here is a link to just half the tariff codes that are classified under “cotton” textiles. The list is pretty detailed.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Cheers

    Cat :)
