Basis for Determining Customs Value for Duty Purposes

The Customs Division of Ghana Revenue Authority, wishes to clarify to the trading public the methods, procedures and processes it follows when valuing goods for purposes of taxation; as is currently done at the Customs Technical Services Bureau (CTSB).  These methods and procedures are as approved by, and in consonance with, World Trade Organisation (WTO) Agreement on Customs Valuation (ACV), and Customs Act, 2015 (Act 891)


The primary basis for determining customs value is the transaction value. The transaction value is the actual price paid or payable for goods imported into the country. This shall be adjusted to include the following: freight (cost of transport of the goods), charges for loading, unloading and handling associated with the transport for importing the goods into the country; and insurance (Please refer to Section 67 of the Customs Act 2015, Act 891.
Additionally, any adjustments and/or additions (Article 8) made to the price paid or payable (i.e transaction value) shall also be factored in where applicable.

The following conditions have to be fulfilled for transaction value to be accepted:
(a)    that there are no restrictions as to the disposition or use of the goods by the buyer;
(b)    that the sale or price is not subject to some condition or consideration for which a value cannot be determined with respect to the goods being valued;
(c)    that no part of the proceeds of any subsequent resale, disposal or use of the goods by the buyer will accrue directly or indirectly to the seller;  and
(d)    that the buyer and seller are not related, or where the buyer and seller are related,  the relationship has not affected the value.
Where the Customs value cannot be ascertained on the basis of the transaction value, the other methods of valuation shall be applied, in hierarchical order, namely:
•    The transaction value of identical goods
•    The transaction value of similar goods
•    The deductive value method
•    The computed value method
•    The fall-back method.
Where there is reason to doubt the accuracy of the declared values, ACV permitsGhana Customs Administration the right and duty to request for additional information from the importer or reject such values and provide written explanation or justification for so doing.In order to provide an objective and scientific basis for doubting the accuracy of declared values, Customs may use Valuation Data base or benchmark values for risk management purposes.
The general trading public is therefore advised that in valuation practice, the cardinal principle underpinning the acceptance of a declared value as transaction value i.e. the price paid or payable is to provide TRUE, AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE trade documents viz:
I.    Commercial Invoice evidencing the sale/purchase;
II.    Bill of Lading covering the goods as described in the Manifest;
III.    Detailed and Comprehensive Packing List;
IV.    Any other applicable trade related document(s)
If all the above conditions are met by the importer or his /her agent, the transaction value would be accepted and a Customs Classification and Valuation Report (CCVR) issued within forty-eight hours.
