Duty Rates (27 Feb 2015)

From 27th February 2015 onwards, Sri Lanka has a new tax scheme declared by Ministry of Finance. Depreciation table has been removed which was used with previous tax calculations. Importation of vehicles manufactured up to 3 years from the landing date is possible with the new regulation, which was 2 years with the previous regulations. New amendments to the previous tax structure made the process simple, but the tax rates of commonly imported hybrids between 1000c to 2000cc were increased.

Depreciation Table (Before 27th February 2015)

Difference of the date which the vehicle was manufactured, and the date it is landed in Sri Lanka is taken for calculating the vehicle used period. This table is no longer applicable after 27 February 2015 for duty calculations.

  • Vehicle used period from 3 months to 1 year – 95% of FOB value
  • Vehicle used period from 1 year to 2 years – 90% of FOB value
  • Vehicle used period from 2 years to 3 years – 80% of FOB value
  • Vehicle used period From 3 years to 4 years – 75% of FOB value
  • Vehicle used period From 4 years to 5 years – 65% of FOB value

Estimated tax of commonly imported vehicles

Here are the tax rates of commonly imported vehicles to Sri Lanka. These are estimated figures based on the FOB values declared by Sri Lankan customs for a specific model of a vehicle, with a Yen rate of 1.13. Actual values may vary slightly in few thousands. All figures given in Sri Lankan Rupees.

These rates are same for any option package within a selected model (for example for S or G grade of a Toyota Aqua tax is the same). Also since the depreciation table is removed, if you import a vehicle manufactured in 2013 or 2015, the tax will be the same.
