New Zealand Low Value Goods and Services Tax

Amazon is obligated to calculate, collect, and remit 15% New Zealand Goods and Services Tax (GST) on low-value goods (LVG), items with a value of $1,000 NZD or less, classified as taxable for New Zealand GST purposes.

The New Zealand GST applies to items sold on Amazon.com by non-New Zealand resident suppliers and delivered to a New Zealand address. When you provide a New Zealand delivery address at checkout, the estimated tax applies to your items and is calculated into your order total. 15% GST also applies to any delivery charges associated with your order.

GST applies to each low value item in an order, regardless of the total value of all items in an order.

The order details display a tax breakdown for LVG items where GST is calculated, collected, and remitted by Amazon.com. An invoice with relevant order and tax details is available in Your Orders. To view, or print an invoice, go to Print an Invoice.

If the order total is above $1,000 NZD, an estimated Import Fees Deposit may apply to the order. This deposit pays any import fees on your behalf (or on the behalf of the recipient). For more information about the Amazon Global program, see About Import Fees Deposit.
