FOOTWEAR MANUFACTURERS TO IMPORT DUTY-FREE SAMPLES
The Federal Government has allowed manufacturers of Footwear to import samples of raw materials, products and articles without payment of customs duty. Earlier this facility of duty free import of samples was available to manufacturer-cum-exporters only. But now Federal Board of Revenue has issued SRO 16(1)/2008 dated 4-1-2008 wherein footwear manufacturers have been allowed duty-free import of samples of an individual value not exceeding US$ 100. This measure will go a long way in helping the industry to import samples and use them in R&D work.
The SRO has already been placed on the FBR’s website: www.fbr.gov.pk
