Zimbra's Zimbabwean Income Authority (Zimra) has instructed its officers at the country's border posts to strictly apply the $ 200 rebate for goods imported for personal use.
In a statement published yesterday, the national revenue tax collector said that if the quantities imported by a traveler exceed the maximum quantities stipulated, then the item will be considered commercial, so it can not be considered as a rebate.
"An example is if a traveler imports seven shirts against the four approved shirts, the whole lot will be considered commercial, so the full charge should be charged on the seven shirts without allowing the four to rebate.
"Travel reductions are granted for goods up to $ 200 or equivalent imported for personal use and the goods are properly declared," Zimra said.
Zimra added that it remains an offense for any importer to import goods within the rebate limits when the goods are intended for commercial use.
Discount amounts indicate that a person will be allowed to import only four quantities of footwear, jackets, skirts, jeans, jerseys, jerseys and shorts.
Foods are not excluded from the list because there are quantities to be fulfilled for different products. Daily News
