Customs officials at the Nimule border point have registered an increase in the amount of money collected in importation taxes.
Speaking to journalists, the Acting Director of Customs Duty in Nimule, Emanuel Goya did not reveal the amount of previous collections but said the figure has gone up to as much as 30 million SSP for goods being brought into the country every month.
Emanuel Goya said the increment is partly a result of the reorganization of the tax department by the national government.
The Director made the revelation during the visit of a delegation led by the Under Secretary for the Ministry of Commerce, Trade and Investment, Simon Nyang Anai.
The team visited the custom office to assess its operations.
