Import tariff

On 23 May 2014, upon the advice of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (ITAC), the South African Revenue Service (SARS) issued Notice R. 377, introducing new rebates for the industrial use of other pile fabrics, knitted or crocheted, of man-made fibres under tariff heading 6001.92 for use in the manufacture of footwear with uppers of textile materials classifiable in tariff chapter 64.
 
While the tariff line has a general duty of 22% (with reduced duties of 10% 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 mixtures of fruit juices are henceforth entitled to a full rebate.
 
The ITAC introduced the rebated on the basis that the abovementioned products are not manufactured in the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) and that the duty provisions would appreciably reduce manufacturing costs and would enable the industry manufacturing the footwear in question to increase its profitability, its price competitive position, and its domestic market share.
