Muitinės skolininko sąvokos plečiamasis aiškinimas ir jo vertinimas Lietuvos teismų praktikoje
27-02-2021

Mokestinių ginčų su muitine praktikoje ir muitinės atliekamų patikrinimų metu dažnai kyla klausimas ar asmuo, kurio atžvilgiu yra apskaičiuojama skola muitinei arba atliekamas patikrinimas, iš viso gali būti laikomas muitinės skolininku. Šis klausimas ypač akivaizdus tais atvejais, kai konkretus asmuo pats apmokestinamų prekių neimportavo (fiziškai nevežė, negabeno), tačiau tik galimai netiesiogiai arba tiesiogiai prisidėjo prie jų įvežimo bei klaidingos informacijos apie prekes pateikimo muitinei (muitinės deklaracijose). Atsižvelgiant į tai, šiame straipsnyje, aptariant naujausią (2021 m.) Lietuvos vyriausiojo administracinio teismo praktiką, nagrinėjame ir aptariame kaip turėtų būti aiškinama muitinės skolininko sąvoka ir ar galimas (bei kada) jos plečiamasis aiškinimas.

Privalomieji ES teisės aktai – hierarchija, formos ir galimybės
27-02-2021

Vienas iš kriterijų skirstyti Europos Sąjungos (ES) teisės šaltinius yra jų privalomumas. Skiriama formalioji teisė (hard law), kurios nuostatos yra privalomos, bei neformalioji teisė (soft law), kuri nors ir nėra privaloma, tačiau taip yra nepaprastai svarbi teisinės sistemos dalis. Kolega Andrius Košel puikiai apžvelgė neformaliosios teisės pavyzdžius bei reikšmę, o šiame straipsnyje panagrinėsime formaliąją teisę, jos hierarchiją, atskirų teisės aktų formų skirtumus ir taikymo galimybes.

Using importer’s knowledge to claim preferential treatment: a gift or a trap?
25-02-2021

Trade agreements have their own unique rules of origin to determine whether something has preferential origin. They also each have their own rules on how preferential origin should be evidenced. This can be confusing when a business is using multiple trade agreements. The focus of this article is on a particular method of evidencing preferential origin: importer’s knowledge. This is a relatively new concept in the EU, first appearing in the EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement, replicated in the UK-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership Agreement (CEPA) and now contained in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement.

UK car import to Ireland
25-02-2021

Importing a car from the UK has always seemed attractive as there is a much bigger choice than in Ireland, prices are very competitive, and anyone could travel freely to make their purchase. The currency exchange rate can also be favourable to Irish buyers. But importing a car from the UK has become more complicated in 2021 post Brexit. Here is an overview of the requirements for imports of cars to the Republic of Ireland from Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

U.S. export law between third countries

Customs in Switzerland: reinvention through digitalization and paperless clearance
15-02-2021

With numerous innovations such as smartphone apps as well as the elimination of Swiss sub-headings in the customs tariff numbers, Swiss Customs aims to drive digital transformation. Since Switzerland is not part of the EU customs union, shipments of goods have always had to be cleared at the Swiss border. Now, cooperation with neighboring countries is to be promoted in order to exchange the data that is now available electronically with each other. This will speed up customs clearance on both sides. In this article, you will find out what innovations are in store for EU as well as Swiss companies.

EU-UK TCA: preferential origin vs returned goods relief
13-02-2021

European Commission released Guidance on preferential treatment, origin and customs procedures to assist EU businesses importing from and exporting to the UK. One of the questions clarified: “Goods originating in the EU are exported to the UK and released for free circulation there. They are not transformed. Can they come back to the EU without paying duties?”. The only suggestion is to customs clear them as returned goods. Does the same principle apply to all EU FTAs? What are the requirements for returned goods to claim “zero duty”? What about “zero VAT”? Other requirements like Sanitary and Phyto-Sanitary?

Significance of guidelines, explanatory notes and other "soft law" acts
13-02-2021

In the European governance the EU legislation distinguishes between the so called “formal law” and the “informal law”. The latter also known as measures of soft law. Formal law compromises regulations, directives and decisions, whereby recommendations and opinions, as well as other methods of developing policy: e.g. policy guidelines are considered soft law. Practical examples of informal law in the field of customs are the Guidelines for Customs Valuation of Goods, the Customs Valuation Compendium, the Transit Guide. What is the significance of these documents in practice?

AEO: a look at other countries’ programmes and mutual recognition agreements
04-02-2021

Continuing the overview launched a year ago, we present a review of the AEO Compendium 2020 published by the World Customs Organization (WCO). There was in the previous review mentioned that, following Brexit, the EU and the United Kingdom are likely to sign an agreement on the mutual recognition of AEO programmes (which has already been signed) and that the AEO certificate will become even more desirable. We are after Brexit and before the VAT changes on low-value consignments entry in force - the number of businesses facing customs formalities is growing, as is the number of companies planning to apply for AEO status, so the topic of AEO remains important. What do we learn by reading the AEO Compendium? The compendium presents how the AEO programme has been developed in various countries over the past year, what mutual agreements have been concluded between the countries and the benefits for businesses with AEO status.
