The Roles of our Melbourne Customs Brokers and Customs Clearance Agents
When you work with a Wallace International customs clearance agent and broker, they will deal directly with the Australian customs authority on your behalf.
Making sure that the correct tax and duties go through becomes one of the primary concerns of your licensed customs broker and brokerage. There are many tasks your Melbourne customs broker will look after without you being caught up in the process including:
- Communicating with agencies and government bodies such as the Department of Home Affairs, the Australian Border Force, and the Department of Agriculture.
- Deciphering information to make it clear for you.
- Adhering to cultural heritage laws if you are transporting artefacts.
- Observing all biosecurity rules if you are transporting animals or plants.
- Ensuring that your shipment adheres to Australia’s strict Quarantine regulations.
- Identifying and applying accurate import taxes.
- Assisting with filling out or filing paperwork such as the electronic lodging of Full Import Declaration, Tariff Advice, Valuation Advice, and Tariff Concession Order applications.
- Adhering to import requirements, policy by-laws, and Free Trade Agreements.
- Packaging quality assurance.
- Selecting the appropriate transport method and cartage.
- Minimising Customs duty.

Ryan and Brendan! Thank you very much for all your assistance in arranging the transportation from China. We were 1st time importers so we have learnt a lot of lessons over the past couple of months. Your patience and advice has been greatly appreciated and we look forward to working with you on our future shipments.
Josh… thank you so very much for all you have done for me and the Festival over the past 6 months. Always so helpful, courteous and precise with your information. The freight was always delivered and picked up bang on time, which was the best bit, after all this time.

I have been with Brendan and Dallas for over 24 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. They understand the industry and how it works, are on the cutting edge of any changes and developments and are quick to advise. Their service is second to none! I would highly recommend the Wallace team to all importers and wholesalers and I regularly do!
Although Wallace International provide a number of services, it is their unrivaled assistance and diligence in all facets of custom clearing, importing from Italy, China, Malaysia, The Philippines, Brazil and The United States is greatly valued. We look forward to an ongoing relationship with Wallace International and its staff in the future.
Just a short email to say that Dallas who has been looking after our Sea- Freight is a very efficient and courteous worker. It’s not often that Natalie has asked me to email suppliers we deal with, but she insisted that I let you know that he is credit to Wallace International.
Thanks to you and the team for arranging the underbond, saving us on storage fees and moving this shipment through so quickly
