Malawi

Use of customs brokers

The Customs and Excise Act (Chapter 42 of the Laws of Malawi) allows applicants (legal or natural) to make and lodge declarations in their names as long as they can demonstrate competence, without mandatory requirement of use of a broker.

However, the Malawi Revenue Authority, a body that administers the Customs and Excise Act licenses the Brokers in accordance with the laid down process in the mentioned Act and Regulations.
