Exporting to Zimbabwe

Question posted by Dean Wyllie, on behalf of D W Logistics in CF72

Hallo, can anyone steer me towards useful information with regard to exporting to Zimbabwe, and in view of that country's Indigenisation Programme, would it make more sense whether to export as a UK company with my physical presence either in UK OR Zimbabwe or to import as a Zimbabwe-registered company, again, with my physical presence either in UK OR Zimbabwe?

Hello Dean,
Wherever you are exporting to there has to be an exporter of record and an importer of record.
These can be individuals or companies. Companies can handle tax more efficiently particularly for import.

As a company if you don't have a physical presence you can instruct a company such as an accountant to act as a fiscal representative on your behalf.

Hello Dean

The Indigenisation Programme should not affect your ability to import goods into Zimbabwe. As Susan said, there has to be an exporter of record and an importer of record, and ideally the importer should be a local company/person. You should focus on he exporting and find a local company to do the importing for you.

I guess it all depends on what you want to do with the goods once they are in Zimbabwe.
