Algeria's Customs Tax Take Up 18 Percent In 2013

Algeria has posted a significant year-on-year customs revenue collection increase of 18 percent in 2013, compared to 2012.

According to Algérie Presse Service, total customs revenue rose from DZD792.84bn (USD10.9bn) in 2012 to DZD940bn in 2013.

Specifically, income derived from value-added tax (VAT) was up 16.98 percent last year compared to the year before, standing at DZD439.15bn, while revenue flowing from the domestic tax imposed on consumption (TIC) reached DZD11.11bn, marking a year-on-year rise of over 70 percent.

Other customs duties and taxes were also up by 25 percent in 2013, totaling DZD8bn compared to the DZD6.9bn recorded in 2012.

Fifteen customs offices in Algeria collected over 95.25 percent of the total customs tax take, recovering DZD895bn last year. The Port of Algiers collected most of the revenue (over 16 percent), followed closely by the Dry Port of Algiers (13.7 percent), Skikda (12.01 percent), Jijel (9.3 percent), and Béjaia (8.54 percent).

The continued improvement in revenue collection in Algeria is attributable notably to the effective controls carried now out by the Customs Administration. Control measures have been further strengthened via coordinated intervention with other institutions, notably with the Ministry of Commerce and other tax services, boosted further by the entry into force of the tax identification number (NIF).
