DG Valuation revises Valuation Ruling No.854/2016

KARACHI: Director General Customs Valuation Syed Tanveer Ahmed has granted the Revision Petition filed by M/s DIC Pakistan Limited and revised the Valuation Ruling No. 854/2016 determining customs values of ink colors.

Ahmad Raza of M/s DIC Pakistan Ltd producing offset printing inks submitted that yellow, magenta, cyan and black are four major colors which constitutes around 75-80 percent of the volume (called process colors). The others are spot colors and made from these four colors. In the four basic colors the increase in value is around 18 percent whereas increase in lemon Yellow is 5.0 percent, bronze Red 2.0 percent and in other colors is between 2 to 7 percent.

His basic argument was that if value of basic colors was increased by 18 percent then other colors value should also be increased by 18 percent at least. Chinese origins yellow dyes increased by 18 percent whereas Korean origins were increased by 11 percent.

 If these prices increased on the basis of raw material their prices should have been increased by equal margins.

The company representative challenged the ruling as the prices mentioned in the ruling are still very low.

After due deliberation, DG Valuation revised the Valuation Ruling No.854/2016.
