at the chamber The Hunter’s Leading Business Awards

CERTIFICATES OF ORIGIN A Certificate of Origin verifies the place of growth, production or manufacture of goods and contains certification by an empowered authority. The certificates are used for customs clearance at the destination country. Certificates of Origin can also be requested by the overseas buyer or the business receiving your goods. In some instances the company receiving the goods will require a Certificate of Origin before authorising their bank to issue a letter of credit and thus payment. In accordance with some free trade agreements, Certificates of Origin are required as part of the application for preferential tariffs. For example, Australian exports must be registered under the Thailand-Australia Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) and accompanied by a TAFTA Certificate of Origin in order to qualify for the preferential rates.
