St Helena : St Helena: EXCEMPTION OF WATER BOTTLES LIFTED
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 28.09.2013 (Article Archived on 26.10.2013)

The temporary exemption of water bottles (including bottled water) and water containers from Customs Duty has now been lifted





 



EXCEMPTION OF WATER BOTTLES
LIFTED



The temporary exemption of water bottles (including
bottled water) and water containers from Customs Duty has now been lifted.
Throughout the period of the water shortage on Island, there was a raised
concern that if the situation worsened retailers could not meet the demand of
the public. Reducing the level of duty was done to encourage retailers to
purchase more items to benefit the needs of their customers.



 



Due to the current state of the water situation, the
exemption will be lifted commencing from the next Cape Town to St Helena trip
expected to arrive 10 October 2013, and will no longer apply to retailers’
importing bottled water to the Island.
