Calculation of Transport and Insurance on FIDs

Thursday, 9 October 2014
View this newsletter

ICS status: Functionality problems
ICS status: Functionality problems

Please be aware that an issue has been discovered with the ICS calculations routine affecting the calculation of GST for all import declarations where a Transport and Insurance amount has been explicitly provided.

Impact
When an import declaration is lodged the importer/broker has the option of providing a Transport and Insurance (TandI) amount. Where the TandI is not provided the ICS will calculate an amount based upon the difference between the Cost Insurance Freight (CIF) and Free On Board (FOB) amounts and use this derived amount in further GST calculations. The issue discovered is that the ICS calculations module is ignoring any TandI amount provided and always deriving a TandI amount from the CIF/FOB amounts for use in GST calculations. The result is that an incorrect GST amount may be being calculated.

Timeframe
All import declarations lodged between Wednesday 10 September and Thursday 9 October where a TandI amount has been provided may have been affected. The impact is a possible incorrect calculation of GST.

Immediate Resolution


ACBPS have identified a fix with a plan to implement as soon as possible. The delivery schedule will be confirmed today and further advice provided.

Rectification
ACBPS are focused upon delivering a resolution to the issue. Once a plan is finalised further details will be provided outlining the necessary steps to address the impacted import declarations.
