Advice about Tariff Concession Orders

Tariff Concession Orders (TCO) are an Australian Government revenue concession that exists where there are no known Australian manufacturers of goods that are substitutable for imported goods.

    In order to claim a TCO in accordance with Australian law, your imported goods must:
  • firstly be classifiable to the tariff classification to which the TCO is keyed to; AND
  • precisely meet the description given in the TCO.

There are currently 15,000 existing TC0s, and these can be found at the links on this page.

It is possible that an importer may be able to use one of these TCOs to claim duty free entry when importing goods. It is recommended that you insert as many commonly used words that describe your goods as possible into your search, as it is possible that a number of different TCOs may apply for those goods. You will also need to ensure that your goods meet the tariff classification listed in the TCO.

If you import goods, and claim a revenue concession through a Tariff Concession Order, you need to be aware that penalties may apply if your goods do not precisely match the TCO description and/or its tariff classification.

The onus is on an importer/broker to correctly enter the goods, including declaring which particular TCO applies. It is therefore incumbent on an importer/broker to be satisfied that the TCO description and tariff classification applies before claiming concessional entry. As an importer you may wish to engage the services of a licensed customs broker or freight forwarder to facilitate entry of goods into Australia. Please be aware that customs brokers may charge a fee for this service.

Importers using an existing TCO are advised there is inherent risk in using a TCO that may have been applied for at a different time and by a different applicant. It is recommended that applicants seek a Tariff Advice to confirm that their goods are eligible for a particular TCO. This will provide certainty of the classification of the goods, and their eligibility for any particular TCO.

If there is no existing TCO for your goods, then you can lodge an application for a new TCO. Manufacturers are advised they can object to any application for a new TCO. In addition, manufacturers can seek to revoke a TCO at any time.
