The customs and revenues authority in Ethiopia, ERCA, has decided to lift the double excise tax imposed on salt production in Ethiopia.
Ethiopian Excise Tax proclamation No. 307/2002 established a 30% excise tax on imported and locally produced iodized and non-iodized salt. Consequently iodized salt, which uses non-iodized salt, already taxed under the proclamation, as input has been subjected to double excise taxation.
ERCA committed to investigating the issue and enacting corrective measures as necessary at the first Federal Public-Private Consultative Forum.Add a comment Add a comment
