GST-free Purchase

GST-free Purchase

If you have plans to travel overseas, you may wish to take advantage of our GST-free purchase service, where the diamond or diamond jewellery you purchased from diamonds.co.nz is exported and collected as you travel overseas — allowing you to save the 15% GST.

This is a significant advantage of purchasing from a New Zealand-based company such as diamonds.co.nz since, if you purchase from a company that is based overseas, you will be charged the 15% Goods & services tax to import the item.

Aside from the GST-free service, we also ship overseas (delivery fees apply). If you are based overseas, GST would not apply to your order, however, please check which duties and/or taxes you will be liable for in your country of residence.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The process involves having your item(s) delivered to the airport (which diamonds.co.nz will arrange) and, once you have cleared customs and security, picking up your item(s) airside from the collection point booth before boarding your flight.

Currently, we offer this service through Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown International Airports — please see below for more details on the process for each airport.
