(d)        the buyer and seller are not related, or where the buyer and seller are related, that the transaction value is acceptable for customs purposes under the provisions of sub-section (3).

 

 

(2)        Subject to clause (b),in determining the customs value under sub-section (1),–

                                                       

(a)        there shall be added to the price actually paid or payable for the imported goods, if no already included in the price;

 

(i)         the cost of transport, excluding inland freight after importation, of the imported goods to the Port, Airport or place of importation;

 

(ii)        loading, unloading and handling charges associated with the transport of the imported goods to the Port, Airport or place of importation; and

 

(iii)       the cost of insurance.

(i)         commissions including indenting commissions and brokerage, except buying commissions;

 

(ii)        the cost of containers which are treated as being

one for customs purposes with the goods in question; and

 

(iii)       the cost of packing whether for labour or materials;

 

(c)        there shall also be added to such price the value, apportioned as appropriate, of the following goods and services where supplied directly or indirectly by the importer or his related persons free of charge or at reduced cost, for use in connection with the production and sale for export of the imported goods, to the extent that such value has not been included in the price actually paid or payable:

(iv)       engineering, development, artwork, design work and plans and sketches undertaken elsewhere than in Pakistan and necessary for the production of the imported goods;

 

(d)        there shall also be added to such price, royalties and license fees related to the goods being valued that the buyer must pay, either directly or indirectly, as a condition of sale of the goods being valued, to the extent that such royalties and fees are not included in the price actually paid or payable; and

 

(e)        there shall also be added to such price; the value of any part of the proceeds of any subsequent resale, disposal or use of the imported goods that accrues directly or indirectly to the seller;

 

(f)         if sufficient information is not available for any reason, with respect to any adjustments referred to above, the transaction value, of the imported goods shall be treated, for the purpose of sub-section (1), as the one that cannot be determined;

 

(3)        If the buyer and seller are related in terms of the rules the transaction value shall be accepted for the purpose of sub-section (1); whenever:

 

(a)        the examination of the circumstances surrounding, the sale of the imported goods as demonstrated by the importer, indicate that the relationship did not influence the price or

 

(b)        the importer demonstrates that such value closely approximates to one of the following Test Value occurring at or about the same time:

 

(i)         the transaction value in sales to unrelated buyers of identical or similar goods for export to Pakistan .

 

(ii)        the customs value of identical or similar goods as determined under the provisions of sub-section (7) (deductive value);

 

(iii)       the customs value of identical or similar goods as determined under the provisions of sub-section (8) (computed value).

 

 

Provided that in applying the foregoing tests due account shall be taken of demonstrated differences in commercial levels, quantity levels, the elements enumerated in sub-section (2) and costs incurred by the seller in sales in which the seller and the buyer are not related that are not incurred by the seller in sales in which the seller and the buyer are related;

 

 

[(4) Where, in relation to the goods being values, the appropriate officer is of the opinion that the importer has not, for the purposes of clause (a) of sub-section (3), demonstrated that the relationship did not influence the price or, for the purposes of clause(b) of sub-section (3), that the declared price at which the goods are imported does not closely approximate to one of the test values mentioned therein, the appropriate officer shall inform the importer of his reservations in writing and give the importer an opportunity to justify the price difference. If the importer fails to justify the price difference, the customs value cannot be determined under the provisions of sub-section (1).}

 

 

            (5) TRANSACTION VALUE OF IDENTICAL GOODS.- If the customs value of the imported goods cannot be determined under the provisions of sub-section (1), it shall, subject to rules, be the transaction value of identical goods sold for export to Pakistan and exported at or about the same time as the goods being valued.

 

(a)                In applying the provisions of this sub-section, the transaction value of the identical goods in a sale at the same commercial level and substantially the same quantity as the goods being valued shall be used to determine the customs value of imported goods.

(b)               Where no sale referred to in clause (a) is found, the transaction value of identical goods sold at a different commercial level and/or in different quantities, adjusted to take account of differences attributable to commercial level and/or to quantity shall be used, provided that such adjustment can be made on the basis of demonstrated evidence which clearly establishes the reasonableness and accuracy of the adjustment, whether the adjustment leads to an increase or decrease in the value.

(c)                Where the costs and charges referred to in clause (a) of sub-section (2) are included in the transaction value of identical goods, an adjustment shall be made to taken account of significant differences in such costs and charges between the goods being valued and the identical goods in question arising from differences in distances and modes of transport.

(d)               If, in applying the provisions of this sub-section, there are two or more transaction values of identical goods that meet all the requirements of this sub-section and clauses (b),(d),(e) and (f) of sub-section (13), the customs of the imported goods shall be the lowest such transaction value, adjusted as necessary in accordance with clauses (b) and (c).]

 

            (6) TRANSACTION VALUE OF SIMILAR GOODS .- If the customs value of the imported goods cannot be determined under the provisions of sub-section (5), it shall, subject to clauses ©, (d), (e) and (f) of sub-section (13) and rules, be the transaction value of similar gods sold for export to Pakistan and exported at or about the same time as the goods being values, and the provisions of clauses (a), (b), (c) and (d) of subject (5) shall, mutatis mutandis, also apply in respect of similar goods.

 

 

            (7) DEDUCTIVE VALUE .- If the customs value of the imported goods cannot be  determined under sub-section (6), it shall, subject to rules, be determined as follows:

 

(a)                if the imported goods or identical or similar imported goods are sold in Pakistan in the condition as imported, the customs value of the imported goods shall be based on the unit price at which the imported goods or identical or similar imported goods are so sold in the greatest aggregate quantity, at or about the time of the importation of the gods being value, to persons who are not related to the persons from whom they buy such goods, subject to the deductions for the following:-

(i)                  either the commission usually paid or agreed to be paid or the additions usually made for profit and general expenses in connection with sales in Pakistan of imported goods of the same class or kind;

(ii)                the usual costs of transport and insurance and associated costs incurred within Pakistan ; and

(iii)               Omitted.

(iv)              The customs duties and other taxes payable in Pakistan by reasons of the importation or sale of the goods.

(b)               If neither the imported goods nor identical nor similar imported goods are sold at or about the time of importation of the goods being value, the customs value shall, subject otherwise to the provisions of clause(a) of the sub-section, be based on the unit price at which the imported goods or identical or similar imported goods are sold in Pakistan in the conditions as imported at the earliest date after the importation of the goods being valued but before the expiry of ninety days after such importation.

(c)                If neither the imported goods nor identical nor similar imported goods are sold in the country of importation in the condition as imported, then, if the importer so requests, the customs value shall based on the unit price at which the imported goods,  after further processing, are sold in the greatest aggregate quantity to persons in the country of importation who are not related to the persons from whom they buy such goods, due allowance being made for the value added by such processing at the deductions provided for in clause (a).

 

            (8)COMPUTED VALUE .- If the customs value of the imported goods cannot be determined under  sub-section (7), it shall, subject to rules, be based on computed value which shall consist of the sum of:-

 

(a)                the cost of value of materials and fabrication or other processing employed in producing the imported goods;

(b)               an amount for profit and general expenses equal to that usually reflected in sales of goods of the same class or kind as the goods being valued which are made by producers in the country of exportation for export to Pakistan; and

(c)                the cost or value of all other expenses as specified in clause (a) of sub-section (2).

 

            (9) FALL BACK METHOD .- if the customs value of the imported goods cannot be determined under sub-sections (1),(5),(6),(7) and (8), it shall, subject to the rules, be determined on the basis of a value derived from among the methods of valuation set out in sub-sections (1),(5),(6),(7) and (8), that, when applied in a flexible manner to the extent necessary to arrive at a customs value.

 

            (10)      Sub-sections (1),(5),(6),(7), (8) and (9) define how the customs value of imported goods is to be determined (***). The methods of customs valuation (may or may not) be applied in a sequential order except reversal of the order of sub-section (7) and (8), at the importer’s request, if so agreed by Collector of the Customs.

 

            (11)      Nothing contained in this section or the rules, shall be construed as restricting or calling into question the rights of the appropriate officer of customs to satisfy himself as to the truth or accuracy of any statement, information, document or declaration presented  for customs valuation purposes.
