Share Now:

VAT imposable price has to be determined adding all taxes with imposable Import Duty (except VAT and advance Income Tax).

In case of imported goods, if no tax other than Import Duty is levied, value on which Import Duty is imposable, shall be the VAT imposable price of the said goods or service.

In case of import VAT has to be assessed multiplying 15% directly on the VAT imposable value.

  • At the import level, in addition to Import Duty, Supplementary Duty, Regulatory Duty, etc. are applicable in particular cases, in accordance with the nature of import.

Method of VAT assessment at import level:

VAT imposable Value = Supplementary Duty Imposable value + supplementary Duty

Supplementary Duty imposable value = Dutiable Value + Import Duty + Regulatory Duty + Other Duties

Advance Tax imposable value = VAT imposable value
