The Australian Trusted Trader (ATT) Program is a voluntary trade facilitation program that offers certain benefits to ‘trusted traders’ provided the business is trade compliant and has sufficient supply chain security controls in place. There has been significant interest in the program, particularly given that trusted traders will be offered duty deferral and streamlined reporting arrangements (slated for introduction later this year). Streamlined reporting is expected to result in significant savings to traders through a reduction in processing costs.

Other key benefits include:

  • dedicated Australian Border Force (ABF) account manager
  • priority trade services
  • streamlined processes to obtain Accredited Status for priority processing of the Temporary Skill Shortage nomination and visa applications
  • access to Mutual Recognition Arrangements 
  • a light touch at the border
  • locking down the trader’s ABN to approved service providers 
  • use of ATT logo
  • monthly import and export reports
  • a seat at the table with ABF on key policy issues and invitations to ATT only events
  • bespoke benefits specific to each trader.

Currently, the ABF has accredited 133 traders and 67 service providers with numerous others awaiting qualification. With the ABF is aiming to accredit 1,000 businesses by June 2020, now is the time for clients to give serious consideration to joining this Program.
