Since a couple of years, Edward Scicluna added SISA to imports from abroad so every importer with each order needs to have workings done of how many kg and Litres of actual net weight of product is being imported in that order. Eg if we import a mascara, each mascara has 9ml of actual product. Workings for a medium sized order can take even 5 hrs! Shipping companies had to create entire departments to deal with the processing of the Sisa. Before the sisa is worked out and submitted, the goods are not released from customs. The sisa tax is then added to the whole order and this is reflected in the price of the end consumer. The Chamber of Commerce was working on the issue for a while to try and arrange the situation to no avail. Thanks
