About Jacobsens

Welcome to the new improved Jacobsens online solution. Jacobsens has been a trusted customs service since 1955 and continues to offer valuable customs information.

With Jacobsens you are able to search or browse the online Common External Tariff (CET) of the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) which comprises the Republics and Kingdoms of Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, South Africa and Swaziland.

You can calculate customs duties on specific products when imported into SACU and review past and present legislation related to South Africa’s international trade.

Current customs exchange rates convert foreign currency to local currency in order to calculate the customs value for determination of customs duty on commodities specified in the Tariff.
