Electronic Duties Returns

Electronic Duties Return (EDR)

You can now register for EDR and change your details online.

Electronic Duties Returns (EDR) is a service that allows an approval holder (approved person) to electronically assess and endorse a range of duties transactions, and pay duty by way of a periodic remittance.

An approved person (EDR client) sends information to us through a Client Service Provider (CSP).

The Duties Document Matrix (PDF) identifies a list of transactions that can be processed on EDR and a general list of transactions which must be lodged with us.

Why should I use EDR?

By using EDR you can:

  • confirm the calculation of duty and interest payable on a Duties Notice of Assessment
  • view a Return Period Invoice of all endorsed transactions online
  • reduce your time and administration costs
  • control all instruments at all times, as they do not need to leave your premises
  • improve your customer service by delivering fast and efficient services
  • access a simplified settlement process.

When is EDR available?

EDR is available:

  • Monday to Friday: 7.00am to 11.00pm
  • Saturday: 7.00am to 2.00pm.

You receive instant confirmation enabling you to endorse documents.
