Pakistan uses the Harmonized System to classify goods. Customs duties are levied on ad-valorem basis. Pakistan’s overall average applied tariff in 2019 was 10.09 percent. Other than customs duty, the government charges 17.0 percent sales tax on the duty paid value of a variety of goods produced in or imported into the country. Customs duty and other charges are payable in Pakistani rupees. 

Export subsidies - Pakistan seeks to encourage exports through rebates of import duties, sales taxes, and income taxes, as well as through subsidized export financing.
