Cost of Clearing Cars in Nigeria 2022

Most imported cars in Nigeria are not exactly new, they are already used foreign cars, some of them are accidented cars of different brands like Toyota, Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Honda, Hyundai etc. Now, you may wonder why the price of these cars are still on the high side. The answer to this is the high cost of clearing cars in Nigeria.
According to government policies, every imported car has to be cleared by the Nigerian Custom Service, or else the car would be assumed to have been smuggled into the country. In order to avoid confusion, singular payments required at the port are narrowed down as the cost of clearing cars. These payments include:

  • Customs duty
  • Terminal fees
  • Clearing agents charges
  • Shipping company fees

It is also important to note that taxes and duty rates are required of all imports, notwithstanding the value. The above charges, taxes and duties makes the cost of clearing cars almost twice the price of the car.
In 2021, the policy of calculating the cost of clearing a car based on the year of manufacturing, was adjusted to be based on the total cost or value of the car.

Nigerian Custom Duty on Imported Cars 2022

In April 2020, there was a 15% reduction on import duties for cars, according to the new ECOWAS directives. So, the import duties which was usually at 35% became 20%.
However, the management of the Nigerian Custom Service tampered with what seemed to be a good news to Nigerian car dealers and users, by introducing a levy of 15% on both new and used imported cars, for the National Automotive Council (NAC). This levy was perceived as a means of maintaining the 35% import duties, and this created uproars and arguments from prominent people in the country, like George Okafor (chairman of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders, PTML chapter).
There is no resolve to removing the 15% NAC levy yet. So we can assume that the custom duty rates on both new and already used imported cars, still remains 35%.
