    USA doesn't do 'duty free' and remove sales tax for overseas sales like UK does with VAT. At least USA sales taxes are typically between 0% to 8.5% anyway, just buy from a state that doesn't have sales tax (Delaware or Oregon).

    Fucking joke.

    Wait till we start ordering 1000's of small items at 50c each with no intention of paying auspost and letting that junk sit there. Its going to be doomed in no time.
    They'll double down on the dumb and start charging processing fees.

    actually write to your local MP, saying that at the next election you will vote for whichever party that jams this idea where it belongs, up the arse of gerry Harvey.

    Everyone should start ordering thousands of 50c items from China with delivery to Gerry fucking Harvey.

    And boycott his stores while we're at it. Fuck Harvey Norman.

    From what I've been hearing, nothing official yet mind you, is the international carriers will be tasked to collect GST along with the usual D&T on arrival. If that's true then it's entirely possible that you could end up being hit for GST twice, it's important to note with the expection of admin fees the carriers can only collect what the ATO/Borderfarce/Gerryharvey tell them to.

    If only we had a platform, say a YouTube channel with two and a half million subscribers, where a video explaining how to make your 50 cent protest could be posted.

    The only good that comes from HN is when they occasionally have a good price on something, so you use them to price match and buy from somewhere else.

    This is what is unclear. Buy a $5 item from ebay and have to pay, I don't know, say $10, $20, $50 fee to collect 50 cents GST.

    what would stop you say sending it via NZ?

    option for a freight forwarder operation?

    Main freight could clean up.

    Probably cheaper to just pay the cunty Gerry tax.

    I think NZ still has a $400 limit on importing foreign goods with no gst?

    So I've been thinking about this.

    Scott Morrison is the Treasurer so ultimately this is his attempted cash-grab.

    The 50 cent crotchless panties and the fuckaround to collect GST on them, should be a message he gets himself.

    He has an office in Cronulla;

    Postal Address
    PO Box 1306
    Cronulla NSW 2230

    Office Location
    Suite 102 Level 1
    30 The Kingsway
    Cronulla NSW 2230

    Phone Enquiries
    Cronulla02) 9523 0339
    Canberra02) 6277 7340
    Fax02) 9523 8959

    Yes he also has an address in Canberra, and in the Treasury, but that's going to be full-on Govco and they will probably intercept "suspicious" packages from China with a bit more vigor...

    Suite 102 Level 1 looks 100% to be a serviced office, just a front. But it would still be effective IMHO.

    You can also send the panties to your local Federal MP as well, but pick their local office address in their electorate, not the one in Canberra.

    So here's the plan;

    Starting from 1st July 2018, 50 cent crotchless panties or other junk from Aliexpress, sent to Scott Morrison at the address in Cronulla.

    The China Post ePacket labels have a customs declaration on them, I would be asking the seller to mark the value at $50 instead of 50c, just for added fuckery.

    As far as I can tell, if you put down an alternate address and phone number, then there is no traceability on the parcel as to who ordered it, it just has the Ship To address on it
    I never get printed invoices inside the parcel, printing shit on paper costs money, so they never put an invoice in there.

    Also there is no "Aliexpress" marking on the packet, just the sellers name/address which looks totally fucken made up to me anyhow.
    No.3 Lane 4 Qiao Lian Dong Yang Mei banTianJie Dao longGangQu shenZhenShi guangDongSheng yeah get the fuck outta here...

    I'd be happy to make a video explaining this, posting it on Facebook and then to the PF groups so be shared and have viral reach, but I don't have the creative skillz to make it hip and punchy like the professional FB floggers so it may not be exciting enough to capture the short attention span of the millennials....

    Speaking of getting screwed.

    An ideal gift for Mr Morrison at the seemingly fair value for money price of USD1.06 inc shipping

    US Amazon rarely delivered overseas anyway, in my experience.

    Might order some baller AW11 suspension bits from T3 prior to July and use this as an excuse otherwise!

    I often use Amazon to drop stuff into my Shipito, so that could be why im still seeing US Amazon as I have a US address linked to it.

    I expect it will be a massive clusterfuck and they will come up with a revised threshold where GST kicks in on imports.
    At the very least, I know I'm right about the clusterfuck bit

    $1000 seemed like the perfect threshold. Even an annual tally and over that threshold you start paying would be better than EVERY_SINGLE_PACKAGE.
