    Hello Mashite:

    There are three kinds of duties are levied on imported goods to southafrica:
    - Customs duties (including additional ad valorem duties on certain luxury or non-essential items);
    - Anti-dumping and countervailing duties
    - VAT (which is also collected on goods imported and cleared for home consumption).

    Duty Rates
    Duty rates in South Africa vary from 0% to 45%, with an average duty rate of 18.74%. Some goods are not subject to duty (e.g. laptops, electric guitars and other electronic products).
    Sales Tax
    VAT applies to most imports at 14% of the sum of FOB value, any duty and excise payable, and a 10% upliftment of the FOB value.
    Minimum thresholds
    There is no minimum threshold in South Africa, i.e. duty, VAT and other taxes where applicable, are payable regardless of the import value.
