Home » General » Zimra On Car Imports

The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority says it handled a total of 38 341 imports of second hand vehicles from Japan through Beitbridge Border Post between January and December last year. Car imports through Beitbridge Border Post have started dwindling as many dealers now prefer to use less busy border posts such as Plumtree, Chirundu and Kazungula.

zimra’s director of legal and corporate affairs Ms Florence Jambwa, confirmed the developments yesterday.

“For the year 2013, a total of 38 341 motor vehicles were imported while a total of 7 670 vehicle imports were processed through Beitbridge border post between January and February this year,” she said.

Ms Jambwa said the rates for excise duty on vehicle imports were dependent on the engine capacity and year of manufacture. “These range from 25 percent customs duty for vehicles with an engine capacity of 1500cc and below to 40 percent customs duty for those with an engine capacity higher than 1500cc,” she said.
