Soni Motors Thailand is Thailand's and Dubai's top car exporter, Thailand's top auto exporter and Thailand's top 4x4 exporter of Right Hand Drive and Left Hand Drive vehicles to the Americas. We established our dominance in export of Right Hand Drive vehicles and have been Asia's top auto exporter to Right Hand Drive American countries including Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, Bermuda, Antigua Barbuda, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia, Guyana, Suriname, and Falkland Islands.

We are proud to be Thailand's top car exporter to Trinidad and Tobago.

More than 336,000 cars were sold in Venezuela last year, an 81 percent increase over 2006 amid steady economic growth, according to the Venezuelan Automobile Chamber. During the same period, the number of locally assembled cars fell by 1.3 percent. Venezuela’s Industry and Commerce Ministry issued permits to import 219,000 vehicles, including motorcycles, in 2008. Due to rising inflation and deteriorating economy car imports have declined.

Import Regulations

Tariffs:

  • As a member of the Complementary Convention in the Automotive Sector and/or Andean Automotive Policy with Colombia and Ecuador, Venezuela shares common external automotive tariffs of 35 percent for automobiles (range from 20 to 35 percent, but most are at 35), 15 percent for trucks and buses (range from 5-35 percent, but most are at 15; 10 percent for Ecuador), and a concession rate of 3 percent for CKD kits available to assemblers participating in the regional/local content scheme (see below).
  • Automotive parts (HTS 8407-08 and 8708) tariffs range from 5 to 15 percent.

Taxes:

  • VAT 14.5 percent, based on price of vehicle: CIF value, plus duty paid, plus customs fee
  • Transfer/local customs and service tax (5 percent), based on CIF value
  • Customs handling fee (2 percent), based on CIF value

Other Measures:

  • There are no limitatio ns on the types of models imported, and no special import permits are required.
  • Local assemblers are free to assemble vehicles of any model and are also allowed to import vehicles. However all local assemblers are subject to a "Foreign Exchange Program", which amounts to 50 percent of foreign exchange outflow in the case of passenger cars.
  • Significant progress has been achieved in removing a non-tariff barrier involving certification requirements. This was based on obligatory quality and manufacturing standard certificates required for certain imports where the Venezuelan standards office COVENIN had established standards for Venezuelan products. Since customs demanded to see an "official" certificate to the effect that the imports complied with similar standards in their countries of origin, importers had the problem in cases where either such standards did not exist or no official standards institute was established which could certify adherence to standards. In the case of U.S. products, there was no official institution which could certify adherence to for instance ASTM or ASI standards or similar. However, importers have by now been able to overcome this and COVENIN appears to accept a statement by the foreign manufacturer to the effect that established standards have been applied. In cases, where the importers have not been able to provide any type of certification, COVENIN is now requesting a quality test by a local testing laboratory, a costly and time-consuming procedure, which the importers are protesting. COVENIN obligatory standards exist for the following products: batteries, safety belts and safety belt anchors, McPherson struts, brake cylinders, helicoidal springs, steel wheels, brake servos, radiator caps, safety glass, spark plugs, tires. retreading material, V-belts, rubber belts, mufflers, steering terminals, wheel lugs, water hoses, brake disks and drums and suspension parts. This list is subject to changes as COVENIN might add other items.
  • There are no labeling, marking or packaging requirements. Since there is some resistance by end users against non-identifiable manufacturers or countries of origin, it is advisable to print on the package or label the name of the manufacturer and his address or at least "Made in the USA". In the case of generic parts, it is helpful to list the automobile brands, model and model years for which the component is applicable.
  • Luxury Tax: 10 percent over $30,000.

Regional/Local Content:

  • Under the Andean Automotive Policy, a regional/local content scheme was established so that vehicles and parts could be traded amongst all three countries duty-free. For example, the 1995-96 minimum requirement was set at 30 percent for automotive parts and passenger vehicles with a capacity of up to 16 persons and merchandise transport vehicles of a total weight of 4.5 tons (Category 1), and at 15 percent for other types of vehicles (Category 2).
  • To enjoy the privilege of importing CKD material with a 3 percent import duty, assemblers must incorporate local content of 33 percent for Category 1 and 18 percent for Category 2.

Based on current information we understand that the regional content requirement in 2000 was 24.8 percent, and will increase to 34.7 percent by 2009.

Import Restrictions:

• The Andean Automotive Policy prohibits imports from other countries of used cars, trucks, and buses, as well as new vehicles from previous years. It also bans trade in these vehicles among the member nations.

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.
