To know how to calculate customs duty for cars,  using the Nigeria customs tariff book or Nigeria customs valuation for cars below, there are values to be considered:

1. The dollar value of your car:

First, the Nigerian customs generate these values. It is a generated fixed cost price of the car you intend to clear.

These values seldom change or do not change at all. If any change occurs in the coming times, trust us, The Clearing Agent will give you updated values always.

2. The Exchange rate (which is currently ₦405 and is subject to change at intervals):

Furthermore, this value is subject to change.

While this exchange rate is subject to change at intervals, (depending on the strength of ₦) we will keep you informed of any change in exchange rate thus, affecting the cost of clearing cars in Nigeria.

3. The percentage of duty to be paid (usually 35% duty for vehicles):

In addition, these are fixed values for cars and vehicles, other industrial vehicles may attract lower CET.

    Hello C.A.
    I’m working on bringing in a Lexus RX 350 (2012) from the US. I’d like help on getting info about the cost of Duty to expect to pay and other related cost of clearing.

  3. Segun A. says:

    Thanks for these writeup series. They are very informative and impressive.
    But while your CET table indicates up to 75% aggregate (35 + 5 + 35, or 20 + 5 + 50) for some line items, the actual Customs spreadsheet doesn’t reflect such. It is usually 40% (5 + 35, or 35 + 5). Kindly recheck, reconfirm and clarify please. Thanks in advance.
