More than ‘teething’ problems with new customs codes

| 30/07/2014 | 1 Comment

(CNS Business): The current duty codes and changes to the customs law have created some real issues and the customs department, the business community and the ministry need to find a way to get all the relevant stakeholders in a room and work through them, Chamber of Commerce President Johann Moxam told CNS Business. Despite efforts by the customs department to get the business community up to speed by working with the Chamber of Commerce to put on workshops, he said it now appears to take far longer now that it did previously to clear items from customs.

He said it was too big a problem to dismiss as “mere teething”.

“We’re now a month into the process and the complaints are growing by the day and it’s something that needs to be addresses promptly,” he added.
