Malawi Revenue Authority  to auction seized items Thursday

Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) has sent a warning to all Malawians to clear their items by the end of business on Wednesday March 27 2019 or risk losing already earned properties.

Some of the seized vehicles

A brief notice seen by Nyasa Times indicates that the sale by public auction of all uncleared items including vehicles starts tomorrow 28th March 2019 at its Customs & Excise Warehouse in Blantyre.

“With only a few hours to go, we would like to appeal to importers whose goods or vehicles were seized for non-payment of Customs duties to clear them today or else they will be sold by public auction” reads part of the statement.

Many Malawians have been crying foul over exorbitant tax fees while importing goods.

Last year, the World Bank said Malawi’s tax regime remains prohibitive to attract meaningful foreign direct investment (FDI).

In a Malawi Economic Monitor report, the bank said there are wide concerns regarding Malawi’s taxation system which it also noted that it is negatively impacting private sector growth.

All uncleared vehicles remain property of MRA, and its MRA which registers vehicles so you know the story. no need for change of ownership the one who buy at auction becomes the new owner.
