China-Australia FTA Update

The China-Australia Free Trade Agreement (ChAFTA) is expected to be operational by 1 January 2016. The ChAFTA preferential duty rate cannot be claimed until the agreement comes into force between China and Australia. Clients should not rely on obtaining duty free status on their goods imported from China until the entry into force is confirmed. We advise that you become familiar with all the components of ChAFTA including Rules of Origin (ROO), Certificates of Origin (COO) and Declarations of Origin (DOO).
