Import tariff

On 19 June 2009, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) allowed for a tariff exemption on liquid crystal digital displays which are used for the manufacturing of video monitors incorporating an automatic data processing machine. The good is classifiable under 8529.90.80.
 
The duty reduction was requested by Tedelex Trading (Pty) Ltd. to the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC). The ITAC then granted the rebate, as the good in question is not produced in the SACU.
 
Previously, liquid crystal digital displays had a tariff schedule of 20% for all countries in general, 9.5% for EU states, 15% for EFTA member states, and free of duty for members of the Southern African Development Community (SADC).
 
Affected trading partners
The GTA retrieves its data on affected trading partners from UN Comtrade. However, for the year 2008, the database was not able to provide the affected trading partners for Botswana, Swaziland, and Lesotho.
 
Update
On 2 December 2011, the rebate provision was suspended by SARS Notice no. 997.
