Jamaica Customs Agency is one of the major revenue-generating entities of the Jamaican government, accounting for approximately 40 percent of taxes.  Still, the government has committed to gradually reducing duties, some as high as 180 percent compounded.  As a CARICOM member state, Jamaica can apply a Common External Tariff (CET) to imports from countries outside CARICOM.  The CET typically ranges between 10 - 20 percent.
