10% of Gold Tax

Sri Lanka announced a 10 percent tax on gold imports Friday 21 June 2013 in what observers said was a bid to curb smuggling to India as global markets trading in the precious metal reported sharp price drops to 2010 levels.

Earlier this week India -- the world's largest consumer of gold -- hiked import duty on the precious metal to eight percent to stem surging demand and reduce the country's ballooning current account deficit, as consumers sought to exploit the fall in prices.

Sri Lanka's Central Bank last week said the island had seen a marked increase in gold imports during the second quarter of this year.  $150 million worth of gold was imported by the end of May this year compared with a total $100 million worth of imports during all of 2012.
