The Customs Act provides that only the owner of goods or a customs broker licensed by the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Customs can submit an import declaration to import those goods.
Because of the complexity of the laws governing the importation of goods into Australia (similarly to those of most other countries) and the potential financial and other implications of lodging an incorrect entry, most importers of goods choose to engage a customs broker to act on their behalf.

The Customs Act deems a declaration made by a customs broker on behalf of an owner of goods as made with the knowledge and consent of the owner. The Customs Act can operate to deem a customs broker the owner of the goods but this does not relieve the owner of the goods from liability.
