This tariff finder is designed to help goods exporters and importers maximise benefits from New Zealand’s Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) and compare tariffs in 136 other markets. Goods exporters and importers can use it to check the tariff applying under each FTA and in many non-FTA markets.
The tariff finder also shows the rates for each year while tariffs are being phased out under FTAs. It sets out the rules of origin for goods and provides information about documentation and additional requirements that apply.
The tariff finder can also be used to compare the tariff commitments for different products across all of New Zealand's FTAs and 136 other markets.
In this tariff finder, all FTAs are presented in the harmonised system (HS) 2012. Full FTA tariff schedules, can be downloaded here.
There are inevitably a lot of acronyms and abbreviations used in international trade. A quick reference guide to those most frequently used is included here (external link) .
Some search results for non-FTA partner markets may show the tariff line description in a foreign language (French or Spanish). This is the language used by that country in their Most Favoured Nation (MFN) tariff schedule and is recognised by the World Trade Organisation (WTO) for their tariff submission. This finder is based on data submitted to the WTO, however each market’s customs authority responsible for operating the latest applied tariffs should be consulted to confirm any changes, updates and additional detail.
