ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On 15 February 2019, the South African Revenue Service (SARS) has adopted Notice 176 increasing the import tariff on beet and cane sugar from ZAR 369.57 c/kg (USD 0.26 per kilogramme) to ZAR 401.79 c/kg (over USD 0.28 per kilogramme). 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.
