Import tariff

On 31 August 2018, the SARS adopted Notice R. 916 establishing a temporary full rebate on digital "smart cards" classified under tariff subheading 8523.52.10. Previously to this decision, the general import duty was 5%. Proximity cards and tags are excluded from this import tariff reduction.

This measure was the result of an investigation carried out by the International Trade Administration Commission who after confirming that there was no local production of these goods recommended on its Report No. 581 the elimination of the import tariff.

The new changes do not affect the EU, EFTA and SADC countries as they already enjoyed a full rebate.
