Import tariff

On December 26, 2013, the Chilean Ministry of Public Finance passed the Exempt Decree 420 to establish new applicable discounts on customs duties on sugar for a one-month period starting on January 1, 2014. The new law established different reductions on the ad valorem customs duties. The applicable discounts were USD 122.60 per tonne of raw sugar; USD 209.99 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 1 or 2; and USD 157.55 per tonne in refined sugars qualified as Grade 3, 4 and other substandard. The previously applicable discounts were USD 139.80, USD 223.49 and USD 173.28 per tonne respectively.

The objective of this decree is to establish a relative margin for internal prices to fluctuate in comparison to the international market.
