Import tariff

On 15 September 2017, the import tariff was increased to 213.1c/kg (approx. USD 0.16 per kg) on beet and cane sugar. Prior to this date the import tariff was temporarily removed, see related state act. Beet and cane sugar goods fall under the following HS code subheadings: 1701.12, 1701.13, 1701.14, 1701.91 and 1701.99.

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 to the Southern African Customs Union (SACU). In case the price dips below the DBRP, a duty is levied.

Update
On 8 June 1018, the South African Revenue Service increased the import duty on beet and cane sugar (please, see related state acts).
