25-11-2020

The system of sanctions for the violations, related to declaration and payment of import taxes, is currently not harmonized within the European Union (EU). Therefore, the article reviews laws of the Republic of Bulgaria (as the EU Member State), defining such penalties and highlights the importance of voluntary disclosure of offence/ violation or mistake by the taxpayer to tax authorities for the application of legal responsibility.

Problematic issues of the prosecution for non-declaration of goods under the Customs Code of Ukraine
04-11-2020

The current Customs Code of Ukraine includes eighteen types of customs offenses entailing administrative liability. Compared to the previous Customs Code, their number has decreased by a third. However, this does not result in positive dynamics towards the reduction of illegal acts as well as there are no signs that some of the acts ceased to be offenses.

Issues of the liability of customs brokers under the Ukrainian customs legislation
04-11-2020

For the offenses committed, which are related to the implementation of customs brokerage activities, the customs broker bears responsibility established by the Customs Code of Ukraine (CCU) and other laws of Ukraine. The person authorized to declare goods, commercial vehicles on behalf of the declarant has the same obligations, rights, and bears the same responsibility as the declarant. These norms are contradictory to each other. And on the basis of these norms of the Customs Code of Ukraine, the customs authority builds its further behavioural relationship with the customs broker.
