Import tariff

On 2 December 2011, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) exempted certain monitors from the customs duty. Instead of amending the regular tariff structure, the SARS created three new rebate provisions:
 

  • 316.23/00.00/01.00: Goods of any description (excluding mounted or populated circuit boards and display panels, irrespective of their degree of completion and any apparatus classifiable in heading 85.28), at such times, in such quantities and under such conditions as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit, for the manufacture of monitors not incorporating television reception apparatus, classifiable in tariff subheadings 8528.51.90 and 8528.59.90

 

  • 316.23/8529.90/02.06: Display panels (excluding any apparatus classifiable in heading 85.28) not equipped or presented with mounted or populated circuit boards designed for purposes other than pixel control, and inverters, whether or not incorporating a back lighting unit but not equipped or presented with any other components, at such times, in such quantities and under such conditions as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit, for the manufacture of monitors not incorporating television reception apparatus classifiable in tariff subheadings 8528.51.90 and 8528.59.90, provided that the Commission is satisfied that the manufacturing process for monitors not incorporating television reception apparatus includes the mounting and populating of unpopulated (blank) circuit boards

 
 For rebate provision 316.23/8529.90/03.06 the reduction is full duty minus 12.3 percent:

  • 316.23/8529.90/03.06: Display panels (excluding any apparatus classifiable in heading 85.28), not equipped or presented with mounted or populated circuit boards designed for purposes other than pixel control, and inverters, whether or not incorporating a back lighting unit but not equipped or presented with any other components, at such times, in such quantities and under such conditions as the International Trade Administration Commission may allow by specific permit, for the manufacture of monitors not incorporating television reception apparatus, classifiable in tariff subheadings 8528.51.90 and 8528.59.90
