Import duty & taxes when importing into Nigeria

Overview

Import duty and taxes are due when importing goods into Nigeria whether by a private individual or a commercial entity. The valuation method is CIF (Cost, Insurance and Freight), which means that the import duty and taxes payable are calculated on the complete shipping value, which includes the cost of the imported goods, the cost of freight, and the cost of insurance. In addition to duty, imports are subject to sales tax, and other taxes specific to certain commodities such as excise, sugar levy, rice levy, cigarettes levy, and automotive levy.

Duty Rates

Duty rates in Nigeria vary from 0% to 35%, with the average duty rate at 16.96%. Some products can be imported free of duty (e.g. books).

Sales Tax

VAT is levied on imports at a standard rate of 5% on the sum of the CIF value, duty, and excise and other taxes if applicable.

Minimum thresholds

There is no minimum threshold in Nigeria. Therefore, imports are subject to duty and taxes regardless of their value.

Other taxes and customs fees

  • Excise is charged on some products at rates between 5% and 30% on the sum of the CIF value and duty.
  • Sugar levy is charged at rates between 10% and 20% on the sum of the CIF value and duty.
  • Rice levy is charged at a rate of 20% on the sum of the CIF value and duty.
  • Cigarettes levy is charged at rates between 50% and 100% on the sum of the CIF value and duty.
  • Automotive levy is charged at rates between 10% and 20% on the sum of the CIF value and duty.
