The word "nil" in columns (4) and (5) appearing against any class of goods in the first schedule denotes that no import or export duty is applicable to that class of goods.

Payment of customs duties or taxes can be made by cash, cheque or bank draft. Payment by cheque requires prior lodgment of security, normally in the form of a banker's guarantee to ensure the securing of the amount to be drawn.
