    Zagros Arabia - Erbil

    Today, Sunday (December 3, 2023), the Border Ports Authority clarified the mechanism applied to impose duties and customs tariffs on containers of goods and gold entering Iraq in accordance with the decisions of the Council of Ministers, indicating that these decisions come within the government’s measures to tighten control over revenues and financial transfers.

    Major General Omar Al-Waeli said in a media interview carried by the official news agency and followed by Zagros Arabia: “Under the direct sponsorship of Prime Minister Engineer Muhammad Shiaa Al-Sudani, a decision was issued by the Council of Ministers No. 23672 of 2023 to support the commercial process in Iraq and regulate the import process, by imposing customs tariffs for... “It is important in providing financial revenues to the state treasury, and in order to simplify procedures for importers through our federal ports.”

    He added, "The decision included the following:

    1. The customs duty for a 20-foot container will be two million dinars in lump sums, and for a 40-foot container it will be 3 million dinars in lump sums.

    2. Demarcation for divided goods without a container shall be according to the approved customs duty amounts.

    3. The import license is suspended. 

    4. Obliging the General Authority of Customs to accept the certificate of origin and invoice issued by the Chambers of Commerce, relying on the national project for the electronic issuance validity system (QR), to facilitate procedures and ensure their validity.

    5. The additional customs duty rate for tobacco and cigarettes was amended to be (20%), while the customs tariff rate was (10%).

    6. Obligating the General Authority of Customs to match the coordinator code for the entering goods with the coordinator code on the SWIFT remittance platform on the transfer platform at the Central Bank of Iraq, and it is applied starting from (phones, cigarettes, and cars).

    7. Customs matches the coordinator code for the remittance issued by Iraq with the imported goods code for the three goods above and asks the importer to prove the legitimacy of the financing, if it is from other sources outside Iraq.

    8. The decision gave importers of goods (phones, cigarettes, and cars) a period of one month to correct the customs and legal status of their goods, after which joint committees would be formed from the relevant authorities, to investigate and inspect stores, shops, and roads that contain infringing goods, and to deal with them in accordance with the Customs Law and the Anti-Money Laundering Law. ".

    He continued, “With regard to imported gold, Cabinet Resolution No. (23671) of 2023 was issued as follows:

    1. The gold importer must be a company officially registered in the Companies Registration Department and allowed to transfer abroad. 

    2. Allowing the import of gold exclusively through air ports, and it shall be registered by customs and inspected and labeled by the Federal Central Agency for Standardization and Quality Control.

    3. The fees and charges for importing gold were determined as follows:

    A- Raw gold and bullion. The inspection fee for quantities of imported gold is 50 thousand dinars for every one kilogram, and 100 thousand dinars customs duties are collected for every one kilogram.

    B - Gold jewellery, an amount of 250 thousand dinars customs duties shall be collected for every one kilogram, and 50 thousand dinars inspection fees.

    C - Amending the controls for remanufacturing gold and re-exporting it outside Iraq.

    D- Gold imported or exported in violation of the aforementioned controls is considered a violation of the law and is dealt with in accordance with the amended Customs Law No. (23) of 2018 and the Anti-Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing Law No. 39 of 2015. Joint teams are formed from customs investigation officers, the National Security Service, and the Organized Crime Directorate to investigate. Inspection of imported or exported gold is outside the controls.”

    He concluded by saying: “The Border Ports Authority, being the regulatory and supervisory body over the work of the departments operating at the border crossings, is directly following up on the implementation to achieve the desired goals of the decision, and it is one of many steps taken by the government to tighten control over revenues and financial transfers.

    This is a GOOD article imho. I had forgotten that long ago, controlling custom tariffs were necessary before the revaluation of the Dinar. I’m not implying I think the RV is going to happen at a certain time but the more items that are checked off, the better position we’re in for the RV to happen. 
    I also want the Census to happen! I don’t think the HCL will happen before that.

    SB, do you not believe the Census must happen before the HCL or am I confusing the HCL and Article 140?

    I believe they are as well. I recalled reading years ago that the census had to be completed in order for the oil revenues to be accurately distributed to each province which will be according to the population of each province. Maybe that has changed but haven’t read anything to that effect. Perhaps someone has and can point me to it.
