Biuro mašina ar tikrinimo įrankis?
25-03-2021

Ar banknotų tikrintuvas priskirtinas prie biuro mašinų ar prie matavimo arba tikrinimo įrankių? Situacija įdomi tuo, kad dėl tapačių prekių buvo priimti du privalomosios tarifinės informacijos sprendimai – pagal vieną iš jų ši prekė priskirta kombinuotosios nomenklatūros (KN) 8472 kodui, t.y. biuro mašinoms, pagal antrąjį – KN 9031 kodui, t.y. matavimo arba tikrinimo įrankiams. Komisija įgyvendinimo reglamentu suklasifikavo prekę KN 8472 kodu. Ar toks klasifikavimas teisingas ir galiojantis? Į klausimą atsakė ir išaiškinimą pateikė Europos Sąjungos Teisingumo Teismas.

Cases of repayment of import duties (EU and UK)
18-03-2021

Reader's question. Is it possible to recover import duties if the imported goods are exported? For example, a Lithuanian company imports goods from China (releases them into free circulation). After a few months, it happens that unchanged goods are sold and exported to a company in Switzerland. In such a case, could the Lithuanian company apply for a refund of import duties? Because the goods were exported and the company itself, if it had foreseen that such a situation would arise, would not have released the goods for free circulation but would have placed them in a customs warehouse. We also operate in the UK, what would be the rules there in a similar situation?

Atstovavimas muitinei tikrinant prekes
18-03-2021

Skaitytojos klausimas. Esame muitinės tarpininkų įmonė. Susiduriame su problema, kad forminant muitinės deklaracijas centralizuotos sistemos principu (pavyzdžiui, deklaracija forminama Klaipėdoje, o prekių pateikimo vieta yra Vilnius) prekių tikrinimo atveju (raudonas kanalas) kartais reikalaujama, kad prekių tikrinime privalomai dalyvautų muitinės tarpininko įmonės darbuotojas. Kadangi vykti į kitą miestą būtų didelės laiko ir kaštų sąnaudos, ar galima įgalioti tikrinime atstovauti kitą asmenį (pavyzdžiui, vairuotoją)?

11-03-2021

‘The aircraft tractor’ hauls an undamaged vehicle - the rate of the duty is higher than it hauls a broken-down vehicle! The correct classification of goods is important for the proper and correct payment of customs duties.

Transforming Customs operations management teams into strategic players
11-03-2021

Within companies, Customs operations management teams are typically slow to adopt new technology. Yet by adopting trade software solutions, they could centralize and automate their Customs and trade compliance processes and harness the value of data, saving time and money and informing strategic decisions. Although this article mainly addresses companies, it is also of interest to Customs administrations who want to understand the solutions and tools that are available on the market and that enable companies to modernize their Customs and trade compliance processes.

Food and feed safety: identifying missing links to unleash the full benefits of cooperation
11-03-2021

In the Netherlands, the Customs Administration supervises the flow of goods that enter or leave the European Union (EU) via the country’s external borders. “Supervision” is to be understood in a broad sense, and includes all acts aimed at establishing compliance with the wide range of legislation that governs international trade in goods with the EU.

Improving Strategic Trade Detection and Classification through Machine Learning
11-03-2021

Ensuring the enforcement of a national strategic trade control (STC) system is a key requirement for all Customs administrations. Strategic goods comprise weapons of mass destruction (WMD), conventional weapons, and the materials, technology and equipment that may be used in their development or delivery. Many of these commodities have both civil and military applications and are called dual-use goods.

TradeTrust: accelerating the digitalization of international trade
11-03-2021

Singapore is spearheading the implementation of TradeTrust, which is a framework comprised of a set of globally accepted standards to facilitate the digitalization of documents used in international trade and logistics and their interoperability, and also a set of software components that connect to a blockchain backbone IT infrastructure. Economic operators and public and private institutions using TradeTrust will create a global network of trusted partners for the exchange and verification of digital trade documentation across borders. The ultimate objective is to enable a more seamless flow of goods between trading nations and reduce the inefficiencies and complexities generated by the use of paper-based documentation, making cross-border trade simpler and safer.

Importo mokesčių grąžinimo atvejai
06-03-2021

Ar yra galimybė susigrąžinti importo mokesčius, jeigu importuota prekė yra eksportuojama? Pavyzdžiui, Lietuvos įmonė importuoja prekes iš Kinijos (išleidžia į laisvą apyvartą). Po kelių mėnesių susiklosto taip, kad parduoda jas (niekaip nepakeistas) įmonei Šveicarijoje ir eksportuoja. Ar tokiu atveju Lietuvos įmonė galėtų kreiptis dėl importo mokesčių sugrąžinimo? Nes prekės buvo eksportuotos, o pati įmonė, jeigu būtų numačiusi iš anksto, kad susiklostys tokia situacija, būtų neišleidusi prekių į laisvą apyvartą, o padėjusi jas į muitinės sandėlį.

Harmonization of procedures is still work in progress
04-03-2021

The authors of this article argue that harmonization should be high on the agenda both of those who make, and of those who enforce, legislation. To illustrate, they explain some of the issues faced by businesses due to the lack of harmonization of rules, or to the non-harmonized implementation of these rules. Three topics are addressed: the difficulty of identifying preferential rules of origin for a given HS code; the process to obtain a Customs registration number in the European Union; and the implementation of the AEO Programme in Ukraine.

Given increasing concerns about food security and food safety and the need to fight hunger and eliminate food waste, a review of the current processes for implementation of the World Trade Organization (WTO) Sanitary and Phytosanitary Agreement and adoption of information technology to enhance workflows would benefit both the import and export economies, as well as trading partners.

Digitization of ATA Carnets: overview of the ICC pilot project
04-03-2021

The ATA[1] Carnet is an international Customs document that permits duty-free and tax-free temporary admission of most goods for up to one year. It enables countries, businesses and border agencies to expedite the Customs process by utilizing unified, ready-to-use declaration forms and eliminating the lodging of a guarantee, bond or cash deposit in the country of temporary importation. At the end of 2020, the ATA Carnet procedure has been implemented in 78 countries and Customs territories. In each one of them, the Customs authority appoints a National Guaranteeing Association (NGA) which guarantees payment of import duties and taxes in cooperation with foreign NGAs around the world. Under the NGA’s umbrella, there can be multiple issuing associations (IAs) in each country to process Carnet applications. Processing fees apply as well as a surety bond which will be returned if the Carnet has been used correctly. The International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the institutional representative of over 45 million companies worldwide, is responsible for administering the global guarantee chain affiliated with all NGAs.
