5% off Pentax Australia Store
Posted By: cpho, 05-29-2014, 06:59 AM

Because of the K-3 winning some awards, Pentax Australia has put out a coupon for 5% off all stock.
The banner says the K-3, but it works for all items.

(Very very tempted to grab a $1050 new 31mm for overseas travel [TRS for Aussies in the know])

Be careful with the TRS. It's meant for overseas tourists to Australia leaving the country and getting their GST refunded.

if you live here and bring it back into Australia and the value is greater than limit of $900 per person ( the K-3 deal with 5% is $1122 + 10% GST) so thats more than $900. They might hit you with GST for bringing in the very same item that you claimed the GST from when you departed.
Of course if there is 2 people travelling I think you can split the "value" (maximum $1800 per couple) and get away with it


Advice for travellers

QuoteOriginally posted by customs:
Bringing the goods back into Australia
If the goods are to be brought back into Australia, please be aware that they may be subject to GST. Normal passenger concessions apply and include any items for which a TRS claim has been approved. If the value of those goods together with overseas purchases exceeds the passenger concession, the goods must be declared to Customs on your return to Australia. Penalties apply to undeclared taxable goods.

If in doubt you should declare the goods to Customs and Border Protection on your return.

Customs will make some allowance for depreciation of the now used camera but the amount is at the discretion of the officer

There is a clause in the customs that allows you to buy things overseas that are necessary for the trip are tax free.

I would strongly advise to find that clause on the Customs Web site and print it out.
So that you would have it handy when being asked.
