PRODAT (PRODUCT DATA) Message SARS Overview
Tariffs are amended on a regular basis and get published in the Government Gazette. Agents then need to update their master files with the amended information in order to supply the correct tariff information on declarations. This is a time consuming, tedious capturing and checking effort. With the introduction of the PRODAT message, tariff amendments are automatically downloaded from SARS’ Loose Leaf Tariff System and forwarded to parties requesting such information. This data can then be processed automatically by the recipient’s computer system, eliminating the capturing and checking process.
