Import tariff

On 27 November 2009, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued Notice no. 1093 exempting the import tariff on Mango juice concentrate.
 
The duty reduction was requested by Magaliesberg Citrus Company (Pty) Ltd. to the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC). The ITAC in turn recommended a tariff exemption, as the good in question is not produced in sufficient quantities in the SACU.
 
Rebate provision
In order to protect domestic producers, the duty free import issubject to a permit, which is only granted as long as a shortage of the goodin question exists.
 
Hence, the government did not change the tariff schedule, but introduced a rebate provision classified under 460.04/2009.80/01.06 with the following description:

  • Mango juice concentrate, with a Brix value exceeding 25, in such quantities, at such times and under such conditions as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit

 
The regular tariff schedule is 20% in general, 7.6% for EU member states, 20% 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.
