I had the great pleasure to transact a wire transfer for 3 x Seaton Catalysts (in Black Oak) this morning.
I'd like to thank Mark for his promptness in arranging the transaction for me at his end. Thanks to Blade for letting my have a listen to his fantastic setup a while back. I'd also like to thank the AUD for it's little rally back up above parity to around $1.05 (Westpac gave me 1.0147 - tightwads). Always nice to be paying less than the USD amount!
Feeling a little bit poor right now, but extremely happy that I can finally tick one of the real long term items off of my shopping list.
My, how time flies! My CAT's are currently sitting at Fedex's depot in Derrimut, Victoria. I just received the notification that the "arrangement" for duties and taxes is required and that the Importer must agree to provide payment of duties and taxes. It's Christmas, you b@stards!
Can anyone remember what it is that we don't have to pay given the FTA with the US and the fact that these speakers are Manufactured in the US? I'm sure there was some aspect of the gouging that could be deflected. Just don't want to call Fedex and pay an amount in excess of what I am actually required to pay.
