Import tariff

The Special Commodity Levy was increased through Extraordinary Gazette No. 1996/50-2017 on the following palm oil products - 

  • Palm oil imported in a packing of 210 liters and below from LKR 170 (USD 1.125) to LKR 175 (USD 1.158) per kg. (HS 1511.90.20)
  • Other palm oil from LKR 170 to LKR 175 per kg. (HS 1511.90.90)

This amendment was initially announced for a period of 6 months but has later been amended in January 2017 (see related State Act).

The SCL is a composite import levy and no other duties or taxes are applicable to the said products except the levy. 

* LKR to USD conversion as on 9 December 2016 - 151.08 LKR / USD.
