The Old Customs Building (Sinhala: කොළඹ පැරණි රේගු ගොඩනැගිල්ල) is located facing the Colombo Port at No. 11, Chaitya Road in Colombo Fort, Sri Lanka.

Constructed during the British period (1815-1948), this two-storeyed Neo-Classical building housed the customs house before it became the head office of the Ports  Authority (Welandawe & Weerasinghe, 2016).
