Radio & TV Tonga, Nuku’alofa, 8/01/2019

The CEO of Revenue has confirmed the Custom’s operation last year especially during the period from July to December was a success.

Kelemete Vahe says Customs recorded an increase in the tax they collected from the imported goods despite the exempt of some tax as part of the Government’s assistance during Tonga’s recovery period following the devastation of TC Gita. However no official figures have been released so far.

Vahe adds the estimated amount of tax exempted as part of the assistance to the people was close to 3 million pa’anga.

During the December operation many people imported goods including construction materials and furniture mostly from New Zealand, Australia and the US also with commercial goods mainly imported from China.
