The leadership of the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) would leave no stones unturned, in its collaboration with the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) in its bid to see the PAAR platform develop, into a one-time cargo clearance document.

The body also  counselled it’s members to tread softly in its criticism of the Pre-Arrival Assessment Reports or PAAR, as the document was always prepared and issued based on declarations, by the importer..

This decision was jointly taken by the body’s National Executive Committee (NECOM) and the Board of Trustees (BOT) last week, at the Dr. Taiwo Afolabi Conference Hall of Dikko Inde House, in Lagos.

“It is for this reasons that we need to tread softly, in our criticism of PAAR. The
document cannot be a final document for clearing purposes. The reason being that PAAR is prepared and issued based on documents, by the importer. The integrity of the documents can only be sustained, if on examination, contents of the cargo tallies completely, with the documents initially presented”, advised the National Vice President, Kingsley Emenike Nwokeoji, stressing the need for importers to be absolutely honest in their declarations/imports by raising their integrity level in trade compliance.

Perharp, it was for the reason of such challenges involving PAAR and trade facilitation, that all ANLCA members must adopt a concerted effort, through increased compliance level, in collaboration with the Customs high command, until PAAR becomes a one-time cargo clearance document, as Nigeria inches towards e-transaction in cargo clearance.

Meanwhile, new lights are being shed on  how vehicles to be classified brand new or fairly used have begun to emerge, in a bid to know those that would be slammed with the additional 35 percent automotive policy.

ANLCA National President, Prince Olayiwola Shittu, who gave inkling on this issue, noting that more focus would now be focused on mileage.

“For example- 500 miles is considered used, while 10 miles is brand new”, he explained, urging the big time cars importers to embark on the construction/operation of vehicle assembly plants, to boost Nigeria’s economy, reiterating that the 35 percent levy is only on new cars and not on used ones, until January 2015.

Some of those at the meeting as NECOM members, were the National Secretary- Dr. Emma Oparah, Acting Assistant National Secretary-Tope Ogungbemile, National Financial Secretary- Dada Livinus Agubuzo, acting National Publicity Secretary- Dr Obicee Okonkwo and all appointees.

Aside the Chairman of BOT, other board members in attendance were: Aare Sanni Shittu, Vice Chairman, Prince Taiye Oyeniyi- Secretary, Chief Peter Obih-Treasurer, Alhaji Taiwo Mustapha- Immediate past coordinator of BOT and Dayo Azeez-member of the Board.
