It says gross collections totaling $12.89 billion was $988 million more than the $11.9 billion projected by the finance ministry.
The agency also says it has surpassed the year to date target by five per cent with gross collections of $43.63 billion.
It says formal commercial imports represent more than 80 per cent of the Agency's total collections.
And it notes that an increase in Import Duty and General Consumption Tax collections and the recently introduced Customs Administration Fees has contributed to the surpassing of targets.
