Bill To Establish South African Customs Authority Fails Again

by Lorys Charalambous, Tax-News.com, Cyprus

15 May 2017


Legislation to create a dedicated customs authority in South Africa has again failed to be adopted in Parliament.

Opposition parties reportedly blocked the Border Management Authority Bill because of concerns that it would mean that the South African Revenue Service would no longer be responsible for the collection of taxes at the border, potentially putting collections in jeopardy.

Although a vote was held in favor of the bill on May 11, there were not enough lawmakers in attendance to seal its passage, after a walkout by opposition parties.
