Paying the right and complete customs duty is one thing any vehicle importer in Nigeria should not compromise. Failure to pay the right duty can lead to Nigerian Customs Service impounding your vehicle. It can also get as serious as you forfeiting your vehicle.
Yesterday being 2nd of October 2019, a circular was released by Nigeria customs Service, stating that all vehicles detained or subject to detention should be allowed to pay the correct and complete Customs Duty with the 25% penalty levy. There are other terms and conditions added to this. You’ll find it in the full circular.
AOB Fatunde, who is the ACG of Customs, signed the circular on behalf of the CG. The circular also mandated officers involved to treat the matter as urgent and to tender reports of such dealings to the Customs Headquarters on a weekly basis.
The Comptroller-General has directed that henceforth, all vehicles detained or subject to detention should allowed to pay the correct and complete Customs Duty with the 25% penalty levy.
