Import tariff

On February 27, 2012, the Chilean Ministry of Public Finance passed the Exempt Decree 316 to establish new applicable discounts on customs duties on sugar for a one-month period starting on March 1, 2012. The new law established different reductions on the ad valorem customs duties. The applicable discounts were USD 256.77 per tonne of raw sugar; USD 367.04 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 1 or 2; and USD 300.88 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 3, 4 and other substandard. The previously applicable discounts were USD 237.37, USD 335.16 and USD 276.49 per tonne respectively.

The objective of this decree is to establish a relative margin for internal prices to fluctuate in comparison to the international market.
