You’ve arrived here because you want to know the latest cost of clearing cars in Nigeria today this 2019 and that will be discussed in this article.
Nigeria can’t be said to be a country that manufacture cars except the few car assembly companies in the country. In fact, about 99% of the vehicles on Nigerian roads are imported. This means almost all the cars we see around have tariff levied on them as at when they were imported. This tariff is one of the ways the Nigerian Government generate revenue through the service of the Nigerian Custom.
It is also important to note that most of the cars on the Nigerian roads were not imported new. This is because a lot of Nigerians can’t afford new cars. These vehicles are usually cheap but coupled with the tariff imposes on them, they become expensive.
In the past, the cost of clearing a car depend largely on the year it was manufactured. In recent years, this had changed, and now the cost of clearing a car now depends on the amount the car was bought.
This new system was introduced to discourage the importation most especially used products. With the current situation, the cost of clearing a car is about 70% of the amount the car was bought. This is the main reason people prefer to follow the illegal route of car smuggling.
This means a car worth 2 million Naira will be cleared with 1.4 million Naira.
