The key Features of Duty2Go
• Vehicle Information
Duty2Go is integrated with a data repository. Data for all vehicles are stored at this location. The Duty2Go app plugs-in to fetch details for Vehicles & Light Duty Trucks.
You will be required to enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), and this will pull all data and display same on screen. One unique item this search makes available is the manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). This represents the price at which the producer of the car sells for. This Value forms the basis of the Cost of the Vehicle. Other vital data that comes from a search of VIN are; Vehicle Make, Model, Trim, Body Type, Transmission, Year of Manufacture, Fuel Type, Color, Drive Type, etc.
• How Import Duties are Calculated
The build up to arrive at Total Payable Duty by Importer, comprises of inputs such as; CIF, VAT, NHIL, Import Duty, Special Levy, ECOWAS Levy, Exam Fee, GCNET charges, and other ancillary charges. All these are derived as percentages prescribed for each and calculated automatically and displayed by Duty2Go in real-time.
