Exporting to Australia

UK companies looking to export to Australia will be aware of the multiple advantages of doing business in the country: it’s English-speaking and has a similar culture and legal system as well as comparable accounting and regulatory practices. Its proximity to the emerging markets of the Asia-Pacific – some of most rapidly developing economies in the world – is a massive advantage, and it has a strong economy itself, with an average annual growth of 3.4% in the decade preceding 2013.

All of these factors should provide great motivation for UK SMEs looking to export to Australia but it’s important to consider the challenges of exporting there, and how these can be tackled, as well.

Probably the biggest challenge of doing business in Australia is the country’s size and its distance from the UK. But with the right delivery service, you can more often than not have your goods arrive in Australia in a matter of days rather than weeks. Transglobal Express rates for deliveries to Australia are widely recognised to be amongst the best on the market and we offer these reduced prices without compromising on the quality of your delivery – you can rest assured that we use only the most well recognised and established global brands including UPS, DHL and TNT.

Send documents by Courier to Australia

Whether you’re sending letters to a relative, an important business contract to an associate, or a certificate confirming your qualifications to a potential employer, sending documents to Australia is very simple. If your correspondence is not urgent or of much personal or commercial importance, you may opt to send it by traditional mail. However, sending your documents via a courier will mean quicker transit times and a more professional service. Better still, it could even be cheaper. Our UPS Express Envelope service offers truly excellent rates for document delivery to Australia. Since we offer rates of up to 70% less than UPS’s standard charge for document delivery, for about the same price as a Royal Mail special delivery, you can swiftly send documents to the other side of the world. What’s more, documents are not dutiable and therefore not subject to customs clearance, so all document deliveries to Australia are likely to be swifter than parcel delivery.

Australia Customs Information

All shipments from the UK to Australia must pass through Australian customs before being allowed into the country. As long as the correct documentation is completed in advance of the shipment, this is usually a relatively quick process. As with any parcel delivery to a country not within the European Union, when shipping to Australia from the UK, you will need to provide four copies of a customs invoice to your driver when they arrive to collect your parcel. This is a document detailing the contents and value of your consignment which the relevant authorities use to process your parcel and calculate customs costs. We produce these automatically for you during the booking process and they can be downloaded and printed once your order is complete. If you are sending personal effects, we have Australian customs forms available on the documentation section of our website to assist the swift transit of your parcel.If you are shipping personal effects to Australia, for example, you should fill in the Unaccompanied personal Effects Statement

Our hazardous and prohibited page displays a list of the most common items that couriers will not accept on a door-to-door delivery service. However, each country has its own restrictions and so our own list is by no means exhaustive.

If you’re shipping to Australia, it’s a good idea to check the website of the Australian Customs Service in advance of your shipment. Many countries restrict the import of seemingly harmless things, and Australia is no exception: the import of certain novelty erasers resembling or smelling like food, is restricted, for example! Though by far the vast majority of products will be accepted, it’s best not to assume that this is the case – always check!

Importing from Australia?

Importing from Australia can be just as simple as exporting goods from the country and Transglobal Express are able to offer excellent rates for import as well as export services between Australia and the UK. Fill in the simple form for a quick, no obligation import quotation.

Transit Times to Australia

Considering Australia is about as far as you can get from the United Kingdom, transit times can be surprisingly fast. If you’re exporting or sending parcels to major commercial centres including Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, documents can take just 3 working days and parcels 4 days to arrive at their destination. Shipments to Alice Springs in the Northern Territory could take 6 days (5 days for documents). You can calculate more accurate estimates of your transit time by entering your collection and delivery postcode into our transit times calculator tools on our Transit Times page.
