How do customs work out the AU$ value?
I want to buy something from overseas - the trouble is that when converted to AUD today (using xe.com)the selling price comes out at $995 which is just at the border of having to pay tax/duty, and it could be $1,001 tomorrow. I have spoken to the seller and they won't fill in a lower value. I really really don't want to pay duty/tax.
How do customs work out the value?? Does anyone know if there is any flexibilty if it comes out at $1,001 on the day??
