I want to buy a 1500€ projector in the EU and bring it back into Australia but I am worried about getting charged some tax if the value bin Australia is a lot more.
From memory when I arrived back into AUS last week through customs, you have to declare items valued over $AUD1000 which have been purchased overseas. You run the risk of getting caught and perhaps fined if you don't declare it so it really depends on how much you value the item, and if you declare it in the first place. about 8 years ago
You are supposed to declare the combined value of all purchases bought from overseas and any duty free bought in Australia (prior to leaving) upon entering Australia. I have just checked the card you fill in upon entry. The $1000 is for when you have it posted to Australia. about 6 years ago
