    Section A: Type of application

    Question 1

    Indicate whether the goods you wish to move are excisable goods, EEGs or other customable goods as defined.

    Question 2

    Indicate the specific type of goods you wish to move. You can tick more than one box if appropriate.

    Section B: Permission holder details

    Question 3

    Provide the legal name of the person, partnership or company the permission will be granted to, their Australian business number (ABN) and their contact details. Provide an email address if the permission holder has authorised to correspond by email.

    We will only grant permission to move underbond goods to the owner of the goods or to an agent acting on behalf of the owner. It is a condition of approving the movement that ownership of the goods is not transferred during the movement.

    The permission holder is accountable for the goods from the time the goods are removed from the dispatching location until the goods are accepted by the receiving premises. Where any of those goods cannot be accounted for, they may become liable to an amount equivalent to the duty on those goods.

    In the case of customable goods, the permission holder will also be liable for any goods and services tax (GST), luxury car tax (LCT) and wine equalisation tax (WET) applicable to goods that cannot be properly accounted for.

    Question 4

    Indicate whether the permission holder is the owner of the goods or an agent of the owner.

    You can act on behalf of the owner in one of three ways:

    • as a general agent appointed to act on behalf of the owner
    • as an authorised agent appointed in writing to act on behalf of the owner in relation to movements of underbond goods
    • as a licensed customs broker who conducts customs transactions on behalf of the owner - limited to movements of customable goods.

    If you are not the owner of the goods, you must attach one of the following:

    • a document signed and dated by the owner stating you can act as their agent
    • a letter from the owner authorising you to move the goods.

    The owner's authorisation should generally be dated within 12 months of the date of the application to move the goods.

    We cannot process your application if written evidence of authority to act on behalf of the owner is not attached.

    Section C: Details of the owner

    The owner is the person or entity who holds legal title to the goods.

    You must lodge separate applications for each owner of the goods.

    Question 6

    If you are an agent or broker (not the owner or the permission holder) provide your business details.
