Export tax

On the 1 July 2015 the East African Community (EAC) imposed a development export levy on hides and skins. The duty rate is set at 80% on the Free On Board (FOB) or USD 0.52 per kg; whichever is highest applies.
 
According to UN Comtrade, no trading partner exceeded the GTA threshold of USD 1 million in the affected tariff lines in the year prior to the intervention. Thus, no affected trading partners have been identified.
