The role of the Lesotho Customs and Excise Administration is to facilitate of cross border trade in goods as well as local manufacturing of excisable goods while ensuring that provisions of laws related to importation, exportation and manufacturing of goods are fulfilled. Its responsibilities include:

  • collection of customs and excise duties and import VAT on goods imported from outside the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) to which Lesotho belongs;

  • collection of VAT on goods imported from members of SACU;

  • enforcement of laws related to protection of the country's economic and social interests which practically translates into allowing or denying entry of goods into Lesotho;

  • enforcement of relevant laws jointly agreed with Lesotho's trading partners multilaterally and bilaterally such as the SACU Agreement, SADC Trade Protocol, General Agreement on Trade and Tariffs; specific bilateral trade agreements on preferential trade as well as unilateral arrangements under which Lesotho is beneficiary of preferential trade.

The Lesotho Customs and Excise Administration underscores the importance of facilitation for legitimate trade while the enforcement role is fulfilled without compromise. Its values cannot be seprarated from those of the Lesotho Revenue Authority (LRA) under which it has been incorporated.
