GST on Imported Goods from 01 October 2019

GST on Aliexpress, Alibaba and other overseas purchase.

From October 2019, overseas purchases from Aliexpress, Alibaba and other overseas suppliers will be adding GST on goods valued under $1000. Hence, price will increase on all overseas purchase.

Offshore suppliers would be required to register for GST in New Zealand & file GST just like any other business in New Zealand. 

The plan is to bring all overseas retailers on a small level playing field with the local retailers.
