Customs issues fresh valuation ruling of BoPET, holographic, pet sequin films

KARACHI: The Directorate General of Customs Valuation on Tuesday determined the customs values of BoPET/holographic and pet sequin films from all origins vide Valuation Ruling No.701/2014 dated November 24, 2014 No. Misc/01/2007-II-Part-I/7844.

The Director General vide Valuation Ruling Order No. 42/2014 dated April 15, 2014 had remanded the case for issuance of fresh valuation ruling. Moreover, there were also persistent demands from the importers/users for revision of Valuation Ruling No.595/2013 dated October 8, 2013 due to downward trend of the prices in the international market of BoPET films.

Therefore, an exercise was initiated under Section 25A of the Customs Act, 1969 to determine the Customs value of BoPET/holographic and pet sequin films. The valuation methods given in Section 25 of the act were applied sequentially to address the issue at hand. Transaction Value Method under Sub-Section (1) of Section 25 was found inapplicable because the required information under the law was not available.

Identical and similar goods valuation methods provided in Sub-Section (5) and (6) of Section 25 of the act provided some reference values but due to wide variations in declarations the same could not be relied upon. In the sequential order a market inquiry in terms of Sub-Section (7) of Section 25 of the act was also conducted. Sub-Section (9) of Section 25 was, however, applied to arrive at assessable Customs values.

Meetings were held with the stakeholders on October 6, 2014 and November 11, 2014 and written and verbal contentions from the stakeholders were scrutinized.  Ultimately, the Directorate General of Valuation determined the customs values of BoPET/holographic and pet sequin films from all origins as follows.
