The Import Processing Charges Amendment Bill 2013 has been implemented by both Houses of Parliament and will commence on 1 Janurary 2014.

What does this mean for you as the importer?  This new legislation imposes an increase in the Import Delcaration Charges for goods, particularly those over $10 000 in value.

The increases vary, and can be viewed in the ACBPS notice.
