Import tariff

On 23 December 2020, the New Zealand Customs Service granted tariff concession on warming draws classified under the tariff subheading 8516.79.19. The decision follows the application issued by Miele New Zealand Limited to the New Zealand Customs Service in November 2020. On the subject products, the New Zealand Customs Service granted a general tariff concession to all importers. Previously the import duty on the subject product was 1.7%. The tariff concession retrospectively enters into force in 1 September 2020.

Tariff concessions are generally approved for goods where no suitable alternative goods are produced locally in New Zealand.
