New TRS rules? Goods no longer included in cap?

Generally changes with a each shift change, allowing for any cross shift processing. They are a word (or based on)for ease of remembering.
Same system was in use when I was at Perth Airport in the late 1970's. If it aint broke ----. It changed from an older system of putting a ring around a city on the then, many generations ago, pax card which had a map of Australia printed on it.
 
I also heard them say that the scheme is for tourists only and not for aussies shopping and travelling. If it is, why do they allow us to claim?
We've always been able to claim duty free. The stupid thing with this rule is instead of buying from a local retailer and supporting an aussie business, they are basically pushing us to just buy overseas. Take it out of the box and 99% of the time they would even know you are bringing it back in.
 
My mate just bought an expensive watch and claimed TRS, declared it on the return and just got waved through

Based on a sample size of me doing the same thing once before, I'd say he was lucky. Then again, I'm still dirty about that whole incident even years down the track.

There was a recent episode of Border Security where they re-charged the GST for a $16,000 Rolex that someone had purchased on a different trip, four weeks prior.

It looked unused though, and the person seemingly was doing this for many many items and making the trips deliberately.

Perhaps they are looking at the frequency too?
My mate was a first time and about $8k watch which was on his wrist when they were coming back

Does that show do more than Chinese tourists bringing in undeclared food?
