On 3 July 2013, Ghana introduced a Special Import Levy on several product groups, namely:
 

  • Machinery and Equipment (HS code 84**-85**) - additional 1 per cent levy
  • Fertilizers (HS code 31**) - additional 1 per cent levy
  • Petroleum Products (HS code 2709 & 2710) - additional 2 per cent levy

 
The measure enters into force immediately. In the initial specification, the levies were scheduled to expire on 30 June 2015. However, the 2014 budget speech foresees a termination of the measure on 31 December 2014.
