Pakistan Customs Tariff [2009-2010]:

Pakistan’s Customs Tariffs get in the largest single share of national revenue. Mostdutiable items are subject to ad valorem duties that range from 0% to 30%. In many cases, a 15% sales tax on imported goods (food, raw materials, and capital goods are exempt from this tax). Alcohol is levied at a rate up to 65% but can be as high as 225%. These rates were significantly lowered in the late 1990s from an average high of 30% in the early 1990s.

Customs Tariffs are levied on major items of export, but these rates are subject to modification as measures are taken to promote or discourage the export of raw materials. Exports of certain foods used copper and brass utensils, and some hides and skins are disqualified. Trade with Israel, South Africa, and Taiwan is prohibited.

Customs Tariff is basically an indirect tax imposed on the international trade of goods either they are exported or imported. A tariff imposed on the imported goods is termed as an ‘Import Duty’ and for the exported goods, the term used as an ‘Export Duty’ but there is also a common term ‘ Duty-Free’ used for those goods which are exempted from any kind of local or national taxes. Some countries also impose taxes on duty-free products but it depends upon the number or the value of goods.

In Pakistan, when importing goods from any country, an import duty is imposed. This duty is calculated by using the CIF (Cost, Insurance, and Freight) method. This method calculates the overall shipping value in which the cost of the products, insurance, and shipment, all are included. Other import duty charges are imposed through VAT, import regulatory duty, and surcharges on some goods. Rates of duty have a range of 0% to 100% and an average imposed duty rate is of 20.67%.  GST is imposed on some products with the standard and reduced rates of 17% and 5% respectively; determined on the value of CIF, surcharge, etc. Import duty will be applied on any basis because the value of products is not taken into notice. Surcharges are applied on certain products like tobacco and alcohol. Import regulatory duty is imposed on some products determined on the value of CIF, having a rate between 5% and 50%.

Export taxes are on the goods being transported or on the services delivered to the outsiders by the residents. Duty drawbacks are also given on the exported goods.
