You will be notified to pay duty... If they declare full amount when it arrives. Then you will just pay it.

Not that hard.

The trick is to request that they keep the declared value underneath AUD$1000. Ask them if they will be ok to declare the value as USD$800 and you shouldn't have an issue.

Only possible issue is that the item might only be insured for the declared value.
I've bought watches from the US and they have declared a low value and got separate insurance.

Or they can declare it as warranty repair.

I try to buy from Australian companies when I can, I tend to get better service from overseas companies though.

Don't forget that BMW is stealing from us though. I replaced the key for my 135. Approx $250 in the US and the UK but they won't sell to you unless you have a road registered car there. Here at BMW Australia it's about $750. That is outright stealing as the dealers overseas are making a profit on their prices.
Don't forget the price of postage or freight is included for GST and duty on overseas purchases.

I do not believe this is true. I believe duty and gst is only applied if the value of imported goods (excluding freight) exceeds 1k AUD. Once 1k AUD of goods is exceeded, duty and gst will also be applied to freight... Or so I'm led to believe.
