The government announced today that the vehicle import taxes will remain unchanged and requested the public not to be misled by false information.

There is no necessity to postpone or speed up the import of vehicles and other import goods unnecessarily because the taxes which are currently in effect will remain unchanged, Secretary to the Finance and Planning Ministry Dr. P.B Jayasundara announced.

Furthermore the Customs time limit for the clearance of imported goods has also been expanded till 8pm on weekdays and until 4.00pm on weekends to increase the speed of the clearance of imported goods.

    I am amazed why people bring God into everything. If there is a God ,he had nothing to do with this. So do not thank him or bring his name in vain.

    Increase the Tax and increase the profit of the car importers.
    Then they can share the profit with GOSL decision makers.
