hey guys I am looking at purchasing a second hand macbook pro off someone on these forums. They are in America and I live in Australia. Just wondering how much i may be charged for bringing this into Australia. Is it something like 10% ??

If its over $1000 you will be required to pay GST (10%) on the AUD price of the item, there will also be a processing fee of around $50. Just went through this when I imported a 70-200 and its a pain in the neck.

Don't forget that $1000 includes postage not just the cost of the goods.

It means that postage etc will be added to the value of the imported item before tax is calculated.
