Botswana Used Motor Vehicle Parts

Postby bridgat » Mon Nov 17, 2008 2:19 am

The Botswana government does not impose restrictions on the importation of remanufactured, rebuilt or used motor vehicle parts into the country.

For purposes of calculating duty rates, remanufactured or used parts are treated as new parts. The Botswana customs department applies the same rates of duty and tariffs for all motor vehicle parts irrespectve of age. Duty rates range from zero percent to 54 percent. Embassy can provide a full list of duty rates by article description if requested.
Quotas or limitations may be imposed on certain new capital machinery which qualifies for rebates. Used goods are not rebatable, hence exempt from this restriction. Like all other business operations in the country, importers of used motor vehicle parts must have valid trading licenses and import permits issued by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

Botswana has two major vehicle assembly plants which are the principal suppliers of parts. The balance is mostly made up of imports from South Africa, mainly either locally produced or originating in Europe. U.S. goods can compete only if less expensive than comparable spare parts already on the market, a difficult prospect due to higher shipping costs. External trade data indicate that the market for motor vehicle parts is slowly growing, with imports for 1998 (Jan - Sept) accounting for about USD 43.2 million, an increase of about 10 percent over the same period in 1997. Available data does not differentiate between old and new motor vehicle parts, making it difficult to assess the market for used parts.
