    Question 14

    You need to indicate the type of duty-free operation (including the relevant permission to sell duty-free) you are applying for. Choose from the following:

    • On airport inwards duty-free
      • These shops are licensed to sell excisable and customable duty-free goods to travellers arriving in Australia on international flights. These stores are located at international airports before Customs clearance.
       
    • On airport outwards duty-free
      • These shops are licensed to sell excisable and customable duty-free goods to travellers leaving Australia. Goods sold in these shops are not placed in sealed bags. These stores are located at international airports after Customs clearance.
       
    • Off airport outwards duty-free
      • These shops are licensed to sell excisable and customable duty-free goods to relevant travellers leaving Australia on international trips. The goods sold are placed in sealed bags and presented for inspection by authorised collection agents when leaving Australia. These stores are located on the 'landside', such as in the city centre, or at international airports before entering the Customs controlled area.
       

    Question 15

    Indicate whether you have an agreement with 'Duty Free Security Company Limited' for docket retrievals at the airport. If you are an 'off-airport' outwards duty free operator you will need to have an arrangement in place.

    Note: You must pay excise duty within 21 days after the end of the month for goods itemised in dockets that have not been retrieved. You do this by completing the Duty-free operator return (NAT 10405) form.
