Government Closes Tobacco Tax Loophole; Only Customs-Permitted Can Import Tobacco Products

Some people in NZ imports loose-leaf tobacco and cigarettes for manufacturing cigarettes. They sell these cigarettes in the black market. The government is closing the loophole that allows these people to sell cigarettes without paying the excise tax.

As per the recent changes, only those who have customs issued import permits will be able to import tobacco products, for others it will become ‘prohibited imports’.

Minister of Customs Jenny Salesa said that such businesses are not fair for the people who have to pay full price at the shop.
