Certificates of Origin for exports

What is a Certificate of Origin?

Its a declaration submitted by the exporter confirming that the goods being exported were manufactured or sourced from the exporting country.

In prior years the preparation of a Certificate was a relatively easy task when exporting from Australia to another country. While the format varied considerably, it was quite simply a declaration of where the good were manufactured on the export documentation.

Under the conditions of various Free Trade Agreements however, to be able to claim reduced or concessions on import duties an importer must submit a Certificate of Origin issued by an authorized government or export agency.

You have to get it right

If the customs and importing authorities of the importing country do not accept the Certificate, the importation will be delayed and in severe cases entry will be denied. This can be a very costly situation for the importer and may take time to resolve.

To obtain an authorized Certificate of Origin, an exporter is required to be registered with the issuing authority and submit detailed supporting information to facilitate the preparation of the certificate. Fines and legal action can be imposed for false or incorrect declarations.

Experience counts

Kelly & Windsor has had many years experience in exporting and in the preparation of export documentation which is almost a science with the various regulations in the world.

Over the years we have had business with several inexperienced importers especially with China business migration applicants who are starting to establish a trading business into China.

We have been able to offer them our  professional and experienced advice on export documentation. Ask us and we can help you to export to your home country.

I noticed a Facebook post last weekend "who owns Kelly & Windsor Australia?" Is it really an Australian owned business?

We are a 100% owned Australian owned and operated business. The ownership of the company is on the pubic records and we extensively use the Australian made and Owned logo under a licence agreement with The Australia Made Campaign.

We were on TVSN with our Alpaca Gold 400 winter quilts and pillows with two shows in June which were both sold out.

These shows were the first time featuring our finest pure Alpaca Gold quilts and despite not being able to be in the studio in person, the shows were a great success with repeat orders required to fill customer back orders.
