Thailand top car exporter to The Caribbean Common Market

soni is thailand's top car and 4x4 exporter to CaribbeanIn the Caribbean region, a free trade zone called the Caribbean Common Market exists. This free trade zone essentially creates one common market for all countries that are considered members of the CARICOM. The CARICOM member countries include: Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad. For the purpose of this report, countries included within the Caribbean Common Market are referred to as "member countries", and countries that are not a part of this Common Market are referred to as "non-member countries."

Theoretically, all goods produced within the common market can move freely throughout the common market, and should not be subject to any import duties, license restrictions, quotas or other barriers to entry. Goods imported into any of the member countries from non-member countries are subject to import duties and other import restrictions.

This does not mean, however, that goods exported from one member country to another member country are not subject to any taxes. Although goods produced and exported within the common market are not assessed with any import duties, they are subject to internal taxes. These additional taxes are also levied on goods imported from non-member countries.

caribbean top car importer exporter thailandAccording to the rules of the Caribbean Common Market, member states are free to raise additional revenue by way of the application of internal taxes, as long as these measures do not discriminate in favour of the domestic production of the state in which they are produced. Essentially what this means is that if the island state levies a tax on an item, it has to levy it on all goods imported and on all goods produced in the country.

The CARICOM has signed many trade agreements for one way trade for the export of goods, such as CARIBCAN with Canada, but have not signed any agreements for the importation of extra regional (non-member) goods. Therefore, all goods imported from outside this Common Market are subject to the same import duties. This means Canadian goods are taxed at the same rate as goods imported from any non-member country.

Each member country also has its own set of exceptions to the Caribbean Common Market Trade Agreement. Many of these exceptions are designed to provide specific protection for specific goods. In some cases these measures are implemented to protect a viable local industry that would be seriously affected by any imports. These "exceptions" are approved by the CARICOM Secretariat, the governing body for the Caribbean Common Market.

The Common External Tariff

CARICOM top new used car exporter importer thailand japanThe Common External Tariff (CET) of the Caribbean Common Market, which is a common system for their custom tariff structure, was introduced in January 1991. The CET provides a harmonized coding system, and a consistent tariff rate structure for the importation of goods from outside the CARICOM region, with set minimum and maximum duty rates for all the member countries. Each island now uses a seven-digit nomenclature based on the Harmonized Commodity Description and Coding System. This has dramatically improved the consistency of rates and classifications of goods, thus making it much easier to import goods into these countries, and have them classified consistently. This means that goods imported from Canada to any of these member countries will be subject to the same classification, and will eventually be subject to the same rate of import duties.

Summary

The importation of goods from outside the Caribbean region and the application of customs duties is one of the most significant sources of revenue generation for the countries of the region. Discussions are on-going with Canada and the United States to become part of a Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) and while progress continues in this direction, there is much concern over the full and fair opening of these markets to international competition. Programmes have been put in place to assist the manufacturing industry in becoming globally competitive, but there is little doubt that the FTAA will result in business closures across the region. The loss of revenue generated through this mechanism will create a vulnerable situation for all of the countries, including the more developed countries, such as Barbados.

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand is no exception. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor's lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer. When you work with Soni you have the peace of mind to know that we have been voted Thailand's most trusted dealership and Thailand's most trusted auto exporter five years in a row and it is for this reason that we have over 80% of the auto exporting market share in Thailand.
