No. 7 of 1908.

An Act relating to Duties of Customs.

[Assented to 3rd June, 1908.]

BE it enacted by the King’s Most Excellent Majesty, the Senate, and the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Australia, as follows:—

Short title.

1.      This Act may be cited as the Customs Tariff 1908.

Incorporation.

2.      The Customs Act 1901 shall be incorporated and read as one with this Act.

Definitions.

3. (1.)  In this Act, except where otherwise clearly intended—

“Tariff” means the Tariff proposed in the Parliament on the eighth day of August, One thousand nine hundred and seven.

“Tariff alteration” means any alteration of the Tariff since proposed in the Parliament.

(2.)   The headings of the respective Divisions in Schedule A are used solely for convenience of classification and shall not in any way affect the interpretation of the Customs Tariff.

 

* Amended by Customs Tariff Amendment 1908, (No. 13 of 1908), see post, p. 123.


 

Time of imposition of duties.

4.   The time of the imposition of the Duties of Customs imposed by this Act is the eighth day of August One thousand nine hundred and seven at four o’clock in the afternoon, reckoned according to the standard time in the State of Victoria, and this Act shall be deemed to have come into operation at that time.

Duties of Customs.

5.   The Duties of Customs specified in Schedule A are hereby imposed in accordance with Schedule A as from the time of the imposition of such duties or such later dates as are mentioned in Schedule A in regard to any particular items, and such duties shall be deemed to have been imposed at such time and dates, and shall be charged, collected, and paid to the use of the King for the purposes of the Commonwealth on all goods dutiable under Schedule A imported into Australia after the time when such duties are deemed to have been imposed, or before such time if not entered for home consumption until after such time.

Application of Tariff.

6. (1.)  The rates of duty set out in Schedule A in the column headed “Tariff on Goods the Produce or Manufacture of the United Kingdom” shall apply only to goods the produce or manufacture of the United Kingdom which are shipped in the United Kingdom to Australia and not transhipped or if transhipped then only if it is proved to the satisfaction of the Collector that the goods have not, since they were shipped in the United Kingdom, been subjected to any process of manufacture.*

(2.)  The rates of duty set out in Schedule A in the column headed “General Tariff” shall, subject to this Act, apply to all other goods.

Validation of collections under Tariff proposals.

7.   All Duties of Customs collected pursuant to any Tariff or Tariff alteration shall be deemed to have been lawfully imposed and collected, and no additional duty shall be payable on any goods on which duty was so collected, merely by reason that the rate at which the duty was so collected is less than the rate of duty applicable to the goods under this Act, and no duty shall be payable in respect of goods delivered for home consumption free of duty pursuant to any Tariff or Tariff alteration.

Rebate of duty.

8.   Rebate of duty may be allowed in respect of any of the articles enumerated in Schedule B and at the rates therein set out when those articles have been used under Departmental By-laws for the purposes therein specified.

Saving of South African Preference.

9.   This Act shall not affect the provisions of the Customs Tariff (South African Preference) 1906 (No. 17 of 1906), and the duties imposed by that Act shall continue to be collected in accordance with that Act.‡

 

* Section 6, above, is amended by Act No. 13 of 1908, s. 3, by inserting after sub-section (1) the following sub-section:—

(1a.) Where in the said column no rate of duty is set out and the goods are not expressly declared to be free, the rate of duty on the said goods shall be that set out in Schedule A in the column headed ‘General Tariff.’”

‡ Section 9, above, is amended by Act No. 13 of 1908, s. 4, by adding thereto the following-provisoes:—

“Provided that no higher duty shall be payable under that Act on any goods than the duty under the General Tariff in this Act:

Provided further that no duty shall be payable under that Act on any goods which under the General Tariff in in this Act are free of or exempt from duty.”


 

Repeal.

10.  Section five of the Customs Tariff 1902 (No. 14 of 1902) and the Schedule to that Act and the whole of the Customs Tariff 1906 (No. 14 of 1906) are hereby repealed as from the time when this Act is deemed to have come into operation.
