ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 10 February 2017, the import tariff of 31.89c/kg (approx. USD 0.02 per kg) on beet and cane sugar was removed. Beet and cane sugar goods fall under the following HS code subheadings: 1701.12, 1701.13, 1701.14, 1701.91 and 1701.99. In March the import tariff was reintroduced, see related intervention.
The SARS uses a variable tariff formula in order to adjust the import duty to a dollar-based reference price (DBRP). The DBRP represents the lowest duty-free price an importer pays in order to import goods the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). In case the price dips below the DBRP, a duty is levied.
