Import Duty Structure On Cars To Remain Unchanged – Budget 2015

25 767

There had been talks and banters  on the internet for the last couple of months about the changes of duty structure in the import of vehicles. One non-auto blog went on to even say that duties would be reduced  by as much as 80%. But we all knew that was not going to happen. Some analysts made some realistic assumptions that duty on used imported cars would be reduced by 5%.

But with the announcement of budget yesterday, all of that remained like a dream filled with rainbows and unicorn, a dream that we would have cheaper, more affordable cars.

With a heavy heart, I am bringing you the news that there has been no change in the duty structure of imported used cars and the duty structure from previous year will  be followed.

You can take a look at the duty structure below:

So with that news, all our hopes for a “Sasti Gaddi” have basically gone down the drain. You can now change your car, which you were prolonging due to budget.

    Yet another victory by lame and sick minded owners of the deadly Suzuki-Toyota-Honda cartel. They successfully managed to buy Ishaq Dar. But I don’t think so they will continue to do some handsome sales, people have already realized that imported cars offer far more features, luxury and safety then these dumb assemblers 🙂

    I found this screenshot from an article here at PakWheels as I’m trying to understand how custom duty works as to be careful in the future while buying a foreign import. According to this, the duty and taxes on a 1.8L would amount to 117%.
    So does it mean 117% off the original price of the car? Say, if I import a 1.8L car worth 10 lacs so including duty and taxes (117%) it would cost me 21.7 lacs? If not, please explain. Thank you.

    I have the same question. Can some expert answer this plz.

  4. Aamir Bashir says

    yep u r right, see thats the reason govt. allow on 3 yrs old car which still comes in new cars category so u pay more whenever in the world u buy 3 yr old car and 117% u pay tax

  5. Arghan Tahir says

  6. Pete Jeferson says

    why they make such kind of budgets…..

  7. ZAMY XCOUP says

    i think, 40% still prefer to go for local assemblers, 30% seems to be interested in imported vehicles. REST 30% have no preference Whatsoever as they have both vehicles under there Garages.

  8. Fawad A. Khan says

    can anyone update whats the depriciation in import duty according to year. for example if a car of model 2014 is imported will its duty be more as compared to model 2012 or it stays the same for three years bracket like constant duty.

  9. Faizan Yousaf says

    AoA. can anyone knows about new taxation rules for 2.7L or greater? I mean what will be the tax percentage on 2700cc if it has price of US$25000 on invoice. 🙂 waiting

  10. Zulfiqar Ali Soomro says

    only 40%? most of the people do not the worth of cars outside Toyota & Suzuki… a point was made in an article here at Pakwheels, people looks at the market value even before buying the car. Which proves people just buy a car for the sake of selling it.. Not for enjoying.. not many petrolheads in our country now..

  11. Furqan Khan says

    Hello everyone! I am currently studying in the United States, and plan on returning back to Pakistan after graduate school. I am ordering an Audi r8 2017 in a few months, the price is around $200,000 and 5200 cc I think. The information regarding import duties, seems to be quite vague on the internet really! I’d appreciate if you could respectfully just answer my question

  14. Anonymous Pakistani American says

    So my question is, how much would it cost for me to import it from abroad to Pakistan?

  15. Abdullah Khan says

    Brother the import duty on cars over 3700cc is 200%. That makes it over 600,000. And another thing is that it will be left hand drive. So if u really want to import one, u shud import one from England or Japan.
