All vehicle imports, whether brand-new or used, purchased or donated, are subject to a 40 percent customs duty on top of the 10 percent value-added tax and ad valorem tax ranging from 15 percent to 100 percent, depending on its piston displacement. The vehicle is assessed based on book value and not on its purchase price or acquisition cost.
