South Africa 24 hour Advance Manifest Rule

Dear Valued Customer

Following the advisory published 20April 2018 regarding the Reporting of Conveyances and Goods (RCG) to SARS (South African Revenue Service), we would like to remind you of the importance of submitting Shipping Instructions (SI) prior to the advised SI Cut-Off date and time.

ONE must receive complete and correct Shipping Instructions (SI) before the advised SI Cut-off date and time to successfully complete our submissions to SARS. If, due to late SI receipt, ONE judges that submissions cannot be completed on-time (latest 24 hours prior loading at each loading port) cargo will not be loaded. You can contact your local customer service representative for the exact SI cut-off. In order to avoid cargo not being loaded on vessels destined to South Africa, please take the necessary action to ensure timely SI submission.

SARS has also revised the grace period where penalties will not be levied against filing parties till 31 October 2018.

We will continue to keep you informed of any further development. If you have any questions, please contact your local ONE office.

Thank you for your support.
