Import tariff

Effective 18 May 2012, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) introduced new rebates for the industrial use of products under tariff headings 5404.1, 5404.90, 5407.20, and 5512.19, concerning various synthetic fabrics and monofilament for use in the manufacture of artificial turf classifiable in tariff subheading 9506.99.20 (Artificial turf in the form of sports fields playing surfaces including marking lines, presented unassembled).
 
While the tariff lines have general duties of 15 to 22% (with reduced duties for imports from EU and EFTA member states, and duty exemptions for imports from SADC countries), imports for use in connection with the production or manufacture of goods are henceforth entitled to a full rebate.
