Just a general reply on importing into Oz as I buy a fair bit of my stock from overseas. We have 5% import duty and 11% GST for a start and much lower order volumes generally. Frieght costs on less than container lots are also much more expensive/unit too.
Also you really need to be looking at the exchange rates 3-6 months ago when the equipment was actually ordered and or paid for in a lot of cases.
Side issue on importing electrical equipment into Oz is also electrical compliance costs need to be defrayed over X units too.
So the answer is that over the next while we should expect SOME reduction as the benifit of the strong Aussie Peso takes hold.
