FEBRUARY 2020 – VOID PLAN

We will rearrange the cargo to the available sailing during this period. For any further void sailings, we will send updates once they are advised. Please be noted we count the blank sailing week base on the first call China port, therefore, some China ports calling later might already enter into next week which please better refer to the actual POL ETD.

Free Trade Agreement between Australia and Hong Kong, China – Entry into Force

Australian Customs Notice No. 2020/02
The Free Trade Agreement between Australia and Hong Kong, China (A-HKFTA) will enter into force on 17 January, 2020

Hong Kong originating goods
Hong Kong originating goods are those that meet the requirements of Division 1M of Part V111 of the Customs Act 1901.  The Australian Border Force will publish further information about determining the originating status of goods and materials on the A-HKFTA web-page:  www.abf.gov.au/importing-exporting-and-manufacturing/free-trade-agreements/hong-kong

Hong Kong Originating Goods
Schedule 13 of the Customs Tariff Act 1995 (Customs Tariff Act) sets out the preferential customs duty rates that apply to Hong Kong originating goods.  Goods classified to tariff subheadings not listed in Schedule 13 have a ‘Free’ rate of duty from the date A-HKFTA enters into force. On entry into force, all Hong Kong originating goods are entitled to a ‘Free’ rate of duty, except for excise-equivalent goods.  The customs duties applied to Hong Kong originating excise-equivalent goods are listed in Schedule 13 and will be indexed consistent with the equivalent rates listed in Schedule 3 to the Customs Tariff Act. Customs Tariff Working Pages for Schedule 13, and amendments to Schedule 4, are Attachment A. The Online Tariff will reflect the updated rates for Hong Kong originating goods from commencement.

Claiming preferential rates of customs duty
The Integrated Cargo System (ICS) preference scheme for A-HKFTA, relevant country code and the applicable Preference Rules are outlined in the table below:

Refund circumstances
The Customs (International Obligations) Regulation 2015 has been amended to provide for the refund of overpaid customs duty in the circumstances outlined in the table below.  The information presented here is of a general nature and does not constitute legal advice.

Further information
