5 Tips for Importing from Asia 1. Visit regularly and make sure what you are told exists really exists, and is owned by who says they own it and not a third party masquerading as the owner. 2. Find out who else (in a major customer sense) – especially in Australia or New Zealand that your potential supplier produces for. 3. Get expert chartered accounting advice on trade agreements, import duties and GST. 4. Get mentored by an expert then start small before placing large orders. Beware of ‘quality fade’. 5. Pay attention to financing and working capital requirement options in your planning and budgeting.
