Import tariff

On 21 March 2013, the Angolan parliament gave power to the executive to introduce a new tariff schedule (Nova Pauta Aduaneira) which will increase tariffs for various imported goods such as beverages, construction materials (e.g., roof tiles, bricks, and zinc and cement sheets) and primary agricultural goods (e.g., banana, sweet potato, and manioc). Luxury goods such as tobacco, alcoholic beverages, gold jewelry and perfumes are also included and are expected to be taxed with a maximum rate of 81% which includes 50% customs tax, 30% consumption tax, and a 1% tax rate for the National Youth Fund and for the promotion of sports activities. The goal of the mark-ups is to boost and improve domestic consumption and production. The new tariff rates are expected to come into force in 2013.
 
Updates:
On 1 January 2014, Angola introduced new import tariffs in order to boost domestic production. Until 2017, Angola aims to attain self-sufficiency. The taxes for beverages, livestock and agricultural products went up to 50 percent from as high as 30 percent.
 
On 30 July 2014, it was reported that Angola wants to introduce quotas on salt, eggs, hortifructiculture, and drinks by 2015.
