Import tariff

On July 7, 2016, the Colombian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism issued Decree 1084 eliminating 143 tariff lines from the list of raw materials and capital goods not produced locally. The products on the list were exempted from import tariffs. The new import duty has been set as established in Decree 4927/2011 with values of 5%, 10% and 15% depending on the product.

 

List of raw materials and capital goods not produced locally exempted of import tariffs

On August 15, 2013, the Colombian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism issued Decree 1755/2013 establishing a list of raw materials and capital goods not produced locally exempted temporarily of import tariffs. The tariff lines included in the list enjoy a 0% import duty for a two-year period starting on August 15, 2013. However, on August 14, 2015, the Colombian Ministry of Trade, Industry and Tourism issued Decree 1625/2015 launching again a similar list with products enjoying a 0% import duty for a two-year period starting on August 16, 2015. In this sense, products removed from the list go back to the previous import-duty regime set on Decree 4927/2011.
