Hey guys need some help here.
the AEM CAI package i odered from US is with the Australian custom and i need to go and pick it up.
I don't have experience with this before, does that mean now i need to paid tax? Any idea how i could avoid this or paid less tax?
Any help/suggestion would be appreciated guys!

I'll ask around and see if any of my mates have had this situation/problem.

hmm....i THINK that may mean you need to pay the tax..
my AEM just got delivered to my door...so I musta been lucky :)
altho...I know that it was inspected, so i'm not too sure...

I'm asume the sender have also send through a invoice.
in that case i'll be paying the full tax, damn it.
and now i have to drive all the way to parramatta (very far from where i'm) to pick it up.
Anyway thanks for the input i'll let u guys know how i go with it.

From experience, if you purchase anything over $300 AUD, then you will have to pay tax on it. Its a pain!

I don't think the guy have send an invocie with the package.
reckon i can make up a fake one under $300 AUS

I ordered AEM Gen 2 CAI today and got him to ship it without an invoice in the package, that should get around it... Hes postage the invoice in a separate envelope ;)

is that it?
