6.6. Border taxes
Introduction of fees on all motor vehicles exiting and entering Zambia
This measure will effectively increase transportation costs for both businesses and individuals.
As a landlocked country which is primarily reliant on road transport, this will have major cost repercussions for all industry sectors and increase the cost of doing business, making Zambia less competitive.
The Minister proposes to increase various user fees and charges to recover costs. This would include statutory fees and charges for services provided by government institutions.
Unless the fee increases are matched by an increase in efficiency, this measure will have an overall detrimental effect.
All of the above measures will take effect from 1 January 2017.
