Excisable (Australian-manufactured) or excise equivalent (imported) goods are the following goods on which excise or customs duty has not been paid:

  • alcohol or alcoholic products (excluding domestic wine)

By fuel and petroleum products, we mean goods such as:

  • crude oil and condensate

  • bio-fuels - such as biodiesel, ethanol
  • solvents - such as white spirits, mineral turpentine
  • lubricants - such as oils and greases

Other customable goods are all other imported goods that are subject to customs duties, including customable wine products.

Underbond goods are goods on which excise or customs duty has not been paid.

The owner deals with EEGs for movement permission purposes if they own the underbond goods to be moved and any one of the following applies:

  • they have a customs periodic settlement permission
  • they hold a customs warehouse licence to store EEGs.
