Import tariff

A Special Commodity Levy (SCL) of Rs. 155 per kg. (~USD 1.07 as on 16 June 2016) was imposed on imports of Crude Palm Olein. Since the SCL is a composite levy, it replaces a general customs duty of 30% or Rs. 66 per kg.(whichever is higher), 15% VAT, 7.5% Ports and Airports levy, and a 2% Nation Building Tax.

This change in levy had been announced for a period of 6 months but was later extended on 9 December 2016* before being reduced on 18 January 2017.
