    Nath had previously commmented that “I bought the UCS falcon – and paid GST on it.
    I have since received a bill from DHL for GST and import duties!
    I’ve lodged complaints with LEGO and DHL, and the LEGO people are trying to tell me I have to pay these duties (which includes double-paying GST).
    This seems wrong, and it has been months with no resolution…”

    Can he (or anyone else) comment on whether the above is an issue for anyone else and whether they were required to pay additional fees or not.

      Tim, that is complete BS! I haven’t heard of this happening to anyone else. I had to pay overseas transaction fees levied by my bank but that’s another story. I checked the home affairs website (the offical government website for all matters relating to imports) and it clearly states that if a retailer collects GST and then GST is levied again at the border then the consumer must seek a refund from the retailer. If LEGO Australia are not coming to the party on this one then call the consumer watchdog (ACCC) to lodge a complaint. Go to their website https://www.accc.gov.au or call their info line on 1300 302 502.

      I don’t know how accurate this information is but I have heard that the shipping goes through DAI Post and you need to contact them to get it cleared. Sorry if this is incorrect it’s just something that I had heard. http://www.daipost.com/contact/

    I too raised this question when the set was released and the general consensus was that Lego Australia is the importer, thus they collect the GST. If you purchased through the S@H Australian website then it should not cost you anymore than the stated price of $1299.99. Lego Australia would be well aware of this and should be supporting you.
    Let us know how you go.

    Can possibly relate to import duties on items over $1000. I’ve had to pay like 12%import tax on eBay purchase over $1000 before. Made the deal not worth doing. That was over two years ago. Now I have recently heard there was some talk of Australians having to pay gst on items bought on line, but thought that wasn’t introduced yet. I certainly haven’t had to do that on LEGO Shop items tho

    LEGO Australia needs to be called out on the way they conduct business here if that is the case. They are operating as LEGO Australia with their offices based here. As such they need to adhere to Australian consumer laws. As they are trading more more than $70,000 worth of goods annually they are required to collect the GST, which is reflected in the prices on the LEGO shop@home.au website and passed onto the consumer. They are importing the goods, not the consumer, and as such any import duty payable (that is separate from the GST) should be paid by them, regardless of the value. Secondly, there is absolutely no disclaimer on their website to the effect of “we do not take responsibility for any extra import duties payable on purchases”. There is a disclaimer about potential bank imposed international transaction fees though. Michael, you have a relationship with LEGO Australia, can you possibly ask for clarification on this issue with them as this could potentially affect anyone here at some point? Particularly as the bar has now been set with prices breaking through the $1000 AUD barrier, a trend likely to continue with sets such as the rumoured Hogwarts Castle coming out later in the year.

      I don’t know that it will be Lego’s fault here. Maybe an overzealous customs agent. I was just raising it as it was mentioned by “Nath” on a previous post on this site. I do not think the duties would be owed however if it is a hard process to go through to prove they are not owed then I will try to get this through a retailer rather than Lego. I was hoping that he would be able to let us know his process. Hopefully he is the only one who had this issue as I have not seen it mentioned elsewhere.

    Sorry to drag this thread out. But extra info I can see:

    My latest SHOP. LEGO.com.au purchase of $530 had gst specifically on the invoice they emailed back to me. Shipping listed as no fees.

    Then on their website they state:
    “Items in your order may be subject to taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country (“Import Fees”). The recipient of the shipment is the importer of record in the destination country and is responsible and for all taxes, duties, and import fees.”

    https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/Shipping-Handling

    It also notes that “all goods are shipped from Europe”.

    As listed above, yes we pay gst for the item and that should appear on your invoice.

    The other fees would relate to import charges on items over $1000. Customs do hold up items when import fees are due. Not sure if import fees attract gst. I have had a shop.lego order over $1000 and not paid any import fee so Tim might be right in that it’s an over enthusiastic customs officer. Hope so.

    Cheers guys.
