Hi Ozspec, don't know if this is useful but just had a quote from Ever Global in Sydney to ship Honda Jazz from Port Kembla (NSW) to Colombo RORO at $1950+insurance as wanted. There is a schedule floating round on the net somewhere detailing the sliding duty scale on import of cars owned os by SLs. Wld be interested to hear of any more info u scource on such import activity - cheers, Scooter

Follow-up. Guess u saw that schedule as kindly pointed out by Mars. I'd seen an English language one somewhere but simply can't remember its location! Was that a definite stop on the blue permits?

Heard it's temporarily for gifts not sure about blues

Interesting thread,

im looking for the import tax calculator excel spread sheet was floating here.

im not sure how that is valid now. i want to send a Nissan xtrail diesel auto (2010) registered,

its goes here around A$30000 - but not sure how much will be it when goes to sri lanka - after tax ofcourse

on road in sri lanka.

It will be a gift permit too - or can be blue permit.

cheers

found the calculater

i put Rs 3723738.00 amount not sure where we place suv's ? is it placed under diesel cars between 2000cc - 2500cc bcoz this vehicle is 2000cc

total came to - Rs13,721,502.20 is this correct roughly tax : 138%

did the calculation on this link

Gift permit imports are economical if you send a car which is 9-10 years old. Otherwise they are not.

BTW I heard there's some issue with the diesel in Sri Lanka and Xtrail engines. Not sure exactly what it is. Pls do a search/ask someone or ask A*W.

thanks for the reply mate,

yea i think its the 2008 model had the issues bcoz i think that was the first diesel model came out.

the one im interested is the gen3 diesel im guessing all the bugs been fixed.

i heard about the petrol issue in sri lanka. also if you have a gift permit you can bring down 6yr old max. so the current normal import ristriction is 2 yrs

cheers

hey buddy, your calculation is wrong. It's not viable to bring diesel vehicles to SL due to the high tax. This is not true if you have a valid permit.

non commercial diesel vehicles 1600cc > 2000cc = ~250%

non commercial diesel vehicles 2000cc > 2500cc = ~268%

if your xtrail is advertised as 2000cc, it is usually less than 2000cc. i.e. falls in the lower tax bracket.

The tax figure you have used is for petrol vehicles.

Hi,,

Very interesting topic I was planning to address in te forum. I also want to send my vehicle which is 8 years old

it is still used by me. I have all the informations requested by CE6 form. But, money i sent to srilanka

was converted to Rupees and invested in building a house, fixed deposts and a in a business worth of 12M rupees.

So i don't have any documents to show tht I sent money to sri lanka. It was done 5 to 6 years back and I have scrapped all the receipts.

If I show my deposits, house legal documents and my business registration in sri lanka will that suffice to

convenience that i have sent money from abroad.
