November 3, 2014 11:59 pm
The Fiji Export Council will be carrying out more consultations with its members in the North on the review of the Fiji Duty Suspension Scheme.
Fiji Export Council CEO Jone Cavubati says they have had consultations in Nadi, Lautoka and Ba – which had a good mix of those who were under the scheme and those who were not.
“Most of the recommendations were the inclusion of packaging, bottles, spare parts and consumables. Currently we only have raw materials, new machines and equipments that can be put in under the scheme. While raw materials enjoys duty free and VAT for new machines and equipment is only duty free but VAT is payable.”
Forty eight members of the export council are trading under the duty free suspension scheme.
After the consultations a report will be tabled for Government by the end of November.
