Tariff Concessions

What we can do for you

ICN provides its clients with assistance in dealing with Australian Customs Service processes. ICN assists in determining whether or not specific industry capabilities exist in Australia.

The benefits of ICN's services

  • The option to consider local suppliers prior to ordering from overseas
  • The right information to know your cost exposure to customs duty, at the right time
  • The chance to receive our services at no cost if the timing is right.

Tariff Concession System (TCS)

Under the Tariff Concession System (TCS), cost saving tariff relief is granted if substitutable goods are not produced in Australia at the time a Tariff Concession Order (TCO) application is lodged.

ICN is the only organisation recognised by the Australian Customs Service to ascertain whether such goods are produced in Australia. To limit your cost exposure to tariffs and duties, it is recommended that you contact ICN early in the procurement process.

Fees

ICN's assistance on general enquiries that provide a genuine opportunity for Australian industry in the early stages of a project will be provided free of charge. Dedicated project services (eg. secondments) will be subject to negotiation.
