Import tariff

On September 27, 2012, the Chilean Ministry of Public Finance passed the Exempt Decree 861 to establish new applicable discounts on customs duties on sugar for a one-month period starting on October 1, 2012. The new law established different reductions on the ad valorem customs duties. The applicable discounts were USD 148.52 per tonne of raw sugar; USD 279.78 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 1 or 2; and USD 201.02 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 3, 4 and other substandard. The previously applicable discounts were USD 207.12, USD 337.22 and USD 259.16 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.
