As far as I am aware this is no import duty on smart phones from China however if the goods are landed in the UK before re-export to Morocco you need to pay 20% VAT before they can be taken out of customs. When they are re-exported, VAT can be claimed back

Most large Chinese smart phone manufacturers already have distribution networks all over north Africa so you would need to make sure you use your own brand on the mobile otherwise they may not want to sell to you.

You need to pay Moroccan import duties according to the certificate of origin (China). I know some of the larger Chinese mobile handset manufacturer let me know how you get on.
