      You can bring into the country up to $900 of duty free goods.
      If you claim tax back on something when you leave the country you have to include it in the $900 when you return. and the item must be shown at the airport with the Tax receipt
      E.G I claimed tax on a $600 bracelet for my wife when I left Australia. When I returned with the bracelet, I only had a duty free allowance of $300.
      If you exceed the $900 limit, you pay duty on all items and not just the items that exceed the limit.
