Namibian Export Freight Tax
The tax authority in Namibia (NamRa) have indicated their intention to enforce a Freight tax on export cargo at an effective rate of 3.2% on the Freight charge. This will therefore be levied as a surcharge on freight for export cargo with effect from 01 December 2023. The Freight Tax is currently under discussion between Shipping Lines, NamRa and tax advisors and may therefore be subject to change. In the unlikely event that the tax will not be raised or reduced, you will receive an appropriate refund.
