New Zealand Customs and Shipping

We dispatch with a completed CN23 form as required by Customs. We include the necessary duplicates including the invoice which is also saved to your My Account page online at our website when you log in.  The invoice only shows the price you paid for our products with shipping on an itemised line, there are no sales taxes or customs duties collected by Spectrumceuticals Pty Ltd. New Zealand sales tax and customs duties are outlined below as a guide and may not necessarily be correct or up to date with New Zealand requirements.

Sales Tax:

Note that for goods imported by parcels post, the total Customs value threshold is $399 NZD, if your order is above this value customs will charge you 15% GST. Note that the $399 NZD is inclusive of our $15 NZD flat rate express shipping so total product purchases should not exceed $384 NZD in any one order. It is the customers responsibility to pay this amount to NZ Customs, goods maybe held up if payment is not made in cases exceeding this amount.

Customs Duties:

The maximum value of any individual purchase is $1,000 NZD inclusive of GST and freight otherwise it is deemed a commercial importation and a Customs Client Code has to be raised by the importer (you) and documentation as to a business entity has to be proven. A customs client code is a unique number that identifies individual importers and is required as part of the import process for shipments valued at NZ$1,000 or more. To apply for a client code fill in the NZCS 224 form on the NZ Customs website.
