Government waives import duties on barrels for Christmas season

According to a Government of Montserrat Memorandum each household on Montserrat will once again be able to receive barrels over the Christmas period, starting now, without having to pay the normal import duty charges.

The memo which is based on SR&O No. 56/2012 informs of  Cabinet’s approval of  the waiver of the customs duties on barrels for the period November 1, 2012, to January 15, 2013.

There will be a flat fee of $50 per barrel arriving at Port Little Bay and no importer will be allowed to use this measure to bring in items for resale.

This practice has become the norm over the last several years. Each household will be limited to two barrels.
