Home Foreign AffairsTanzania DiasporaDonation to Charitable Organizations and NGOsProcessing of Tax Exemption

Recipients of donations from the diaspora are required to follow the normal customs procedure of clearing goods through a registered Customs Clearing and Forwarding Agent. The agent will apply for the tax exemption to the Commissioner for Customs & Excise if exemption for such goods is provided for in the tax laws. The Commissioner will issue an assessment of the taxes and duties involved and submit it to the Treasury which will in turn issue a cheque for the exempted taxes. As soon as the Commissioner receives the cheque for the exempted tax / duty from the Treasury, he will release the goods to the owner.

This clearance process is fast under the Custom’s automated system of ASYCUDA++/ASYSCAN where data related to import transactions are electronically keyed in and submitted to the system for processing. Under this automated system, import documents can be lodged even ten days before the arrival of goods and this speeds up the process of documentation and finally examination of goods as soon as they land.
