The Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) has said that it has no plans to slash duty on imported vehicles into the country.

This pronouncement came against the backdrop of speculations in the industry that the service has reviewed the tariff on imported used vehicles from 35 to 20 per cent.

It was alleged that the duty rate is applicable on Common External Tariff trade portal under HS Code 8703.

However, clearing agents have insisted that the Customs must make an official statement announcing the reduction on duty.
