The Bureau of Customs (BoC) seized 51 high-end vehicles on Wednesday, July 26, at a showroom in Pasig City.

Customs said that the seizure stemmed from the failure of the owners to submit evidence of payment of correct duties and taxes.

The BoC added that the agency notified the registered owners of the vehicles that they have 15 days in order to submit corresponding evidence of ownership and payment of correct duties and taxes for the subject motor vehicles.

However, the agency said that the owners only submitted the registration documents of the subject motor vehicles


BoC stressed that the seizure 'shall serve as a reminder to all importers and dealerships to strictly adhere to customs laws, rules and regulations, and faithfully fulfill their duties and obligations promptly and responsibly'.

"Our primary goal is to protect the interests of the Filipino people, safeguarding the nation’s revenue, and maintaining a fair and transparent trade environment," Customs Commissioner Bienvenido Rubio said in a statement.

BoC said that 28 out of the 51 vehicles have been transferred to the BOC-Port of Manila.
