Pay Less Export Tariff: Australia to Germany
Germany is a member of the European Union (EU) and as such is subject to the laws of the trade agreements put in place by it. Any business or individual exporting from a non-EU country such as Australia must therefore comply with the legislation and regulations put in place by this single market.
In June 2018, negotiations began for a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between Australia and the EU. An FTA with the EU would mean less export tariff from Australia to Germany, thereby opening up a huge market for Australian services and goods. These discussions were still underway at the time of writing. For the latest information on the deal, please check with the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
