Custom duties cut down for Gun Club

The Cayman Islands Sport Shooting Association will be able to bring in sport guns and accessories at a lower duty rate.

Custom duties on gun imports, for members of the association have been cut by about 80%. The club will now be able to import ammunition and targets, as well as import up to four guns a year duty-free. Cabinet signed off on the tariff amendments on October 14th and were published in the Government’s Gazette on Monday 24 October.

The cuts bring the tax rate for club members to the same level for registered farmers, who have special permits to use firearms on farmland to protect crops from animals.

Cayman 27 reached out to Gun Club President Eddie McLean for comments, but no response was received by airtime.
