Yes, when importing goods into New Zealand, you may be required to pay Goods and Services Tax (GST). GST is a consumption tax, and in New Zealand, it is currently set at 15%. The GST is generally applied to the customs value of the goods, which includes the cost of the goods, shipping, and insurance.
In addition to GST, you might also be subject to other duties and taxes, such as Customs duties and/or Excise duties, depending on the nature of the goods you are importing.
It’s crucial to consider that specific rules and exemptions may apply, and the New Zealand Customs Service can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information.
