Customs Tariff

 

 A tariff is a duty imposed on goods when they are moved across a political boundary. Tariffs are usually associated with protectionism, the economic policy of restraining trade between nations. For political reasons, tariffs are usually imposed on imported goods, although they may also be imposed on exported goods.

 
When shipments of goods arrive at a border crossing or port (Airport or sea port), customs officers inspect the contents and charge a tax according to the tariff formula. The goods are not allowed to continue transit until the duty is paid, making this the easiest way for customs officials to collect duties, and the cost of collection these duties is small.
 
Following Paris protocol and the fact that Palestine and Israel are under one customs envelop, both the Palestinian and the Israeli tariff books are the same in terms of classification codes, rules and tax rates, no matter when searching or trying to classify an item to use either of the books.
