Electronic Zone Transfer System

The ELECTRONIC ZONE TRANSFER SYSTEM (eZTS) is an end-to-end solution to document transfer of goods imported tax and duty free from an economic zone enterprise to another enterprise in another PEZA zone, in the same zone or in a non-PEZA location. The system has three e-document components capturing the transfer activity from endorsement of the goods involved in the transfer and the Originating PEZA-registered Enterprise (OPRE) up to receipt of the goods by the Receiving PEZA-registered Enterprise (RPRE).

 

ELECTRONIC CERTIFICATE (eCERT) is an online endorsement filed by a PEZA Enterprise of an appointed Warehouse/Logistics Service Enterprise, the goods involved in the transfer activity and the source.

ELECTRONIC LETTER OF AUTHORITY (eLOA) allows the RPRE to submit online an application for authorization the PEZA to engage in the activity indicated in the approved eCertificate and receive responses from PEZA online.

 

ELECTRONIC ZONE TRANSFER DOCUMENT (eZTD) replaces forms 8106, 8105, 8112, 8110 and PEZA Boatnote. A single document submitted by the OPRE before any delivery which will contain the information such as the Items for transfer, quantity, units of measure and the FOB Value. The same document will be acknowledged online by the RPRE when the goods are received.

 

Full implementation is targeted by PEZA for June 2016. The memorandum for the implementation of Electronic Zone Transfers System which will include the implementing rules and application documents will be issued by PEZA prior to mandatory implementation.
