New goods clearance rules

Category: General

The customs department has proposed new rules for the self-clearance of goods at ports without using customs agents.  A customs notification SRO1764 was released on Monday to get feedback from all stakeholders. The notification seeks feedback within 15 days of the publication of the draft amendments.  “Any objections or suggestions which may be received from any person, before the expiry of the aforesaid period, will be taken into consideration by the Federal Board of Revenue,” stated the notification.  Under self-clearance, a person or his employee, or his authorised representative, transacts customs business without using a customs agent. However, this will be subject to all procedures notified in the notification
