May 19, 2020

South African Revenue Service

Various Schedules to the Customs and Excise Act have been amended.

The South African Revenue Service published the raft of notices in Government Gazette 43317.

Schedules 1,2 4, 6 and 10 are amended.

The following note is inserted into all five Schedules:


“Any reference to the Kingdom of Swaziland and BLNS in any provision of this Schedule shall, with effect from 19 April 2018, be deemed to be a reference to the Kingdom of Eswatini and BELN, respectively, in terms of the provisions which existed before 19 April 2018.”

The amendments acknowledge the change of name of Swaziland in 2018 to Eswatini.

They also confirm the change in reference to BLNS to BELN in order to accommodate the name change.
