Cabinet approves Customs, Excise duty SI


CABINET has approved the customs and excise regulation 2024, a statutory instrument (SI) intended to provide a legal framework for the licensing and accreditation of customs clearing agents.

Prior to 2019, the mandate relating to licensing of customs and clearing and forwarding agents was gazetted through customs rules by the commissioner general of the Zambia Revenue Authority.

However, the provision for licensing of customs clearing and forwarding agents was removed from the customs and excuse general regulation of 2000 to provide for standalone regulation.

The customs clearing agents will, going forward be required to be licensed by the licensing committee.

The 2024 regulation approved by cabinet, will enable the operationalisation of the licensing committee and also specify the mandate, tenure and powers of the licensing committee. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE
