Check your maths...
Purchase price inc free shipping = $1367
Duty = 5% of $1367 = 68.35
GST = 10% of ($1367 + $68.35) = 143.53
Total payable to Aus Govt = $211.88
Total cost of groupset inc gst, duty = $1578
This does not include potential brokerage charges.
Also note that you may not have to pay duty as bicycle parts are not dutiable. However sometimes you might get slugged with it if the customs declaration form isn't clear about what is inside the box.
But in that case, if duty isn't applicable, you're talking a grand total of $1503.70.
