A chance for businesses to reduce their post-Brexit customs duty bill – UK tariff suspensions
22-05-2021

Exactly a year following the publication of the UK’s Global Tariff, the UK government announced on 20 May 2021 that the UK will launch its own tariff suspension scheme, tailored to the needs of UK businesses. This means legible goods will benefit from paying no customs duties upon import into the UK. As a UK business paying customs duties currently, this is a window of opportunity to apply for a tariff suspension to reduce your future customs duty bill. What does this mean in practice, and who can apply for this benefit?

What's wrong with customs valuation in Ukraine?
22-05-2021

Customs valuation of goods imported into Ukraine is one of the most challenging stages of cross-border trade operations. It is relatively easy to determine the customs value of goods; however, it is almost impossible to convince the customs that the value is accurate and based on the actual price. Hence, there are many court appeals against customs decisions to adjust the customs value. The statistics of court proceedings on such cases are not in favour of customs. Thus, in cases involving Ukrainian customs, 80% (2330 out of 2917 considered over 11 months of 2020) of court decisions were made in favour of plaintiffs (importers, declarants, etc.).

CJEU: DAF transaction price and actual transport costs that exceed it
15-05-2021

The Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) examined a case regarding the determination of the customs value of imported goods (technical sulfuric acid). The question was raised whether customs authorities were entitled to add transport costs to the transaction price if, under the Incoterms DAF terms agreed between the parties, the transport costs were already included in the transaction price but actually exceeded it.

15-05-2021

In this article, we outline issues that holders of the procedure (who provide a guarantee to cover the amount of potential debt) might face in case the Union transit procedure or common transit procedure is not properly ended in the electronic customs systems. A real case, when the T1 transit procedure was not ended in Germany, and the goods were shipped to Russia, is provided as an example of an issue.

Customs tariff in simple terms: "mechanical and electric appliances"​ of​ chapters 84 and 85
15-05-2021

The mechanical engineering industry has a problem. Or more specifically the customs specialists at the respective companies. The departments of these companies can cooperate so well with each other and provide each other with important information for everyday work, but the customs tariff is and remains a sticking point. Simply because there is little background knowledge about it and also the limited offer of further education often focuses on the customs tariff in general. This is also one of the reasons why ERP master data around foreign trade is often not correctly maintained.

In this article, we review the judgment of the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU), in which the goods relevant at this time of year are examined, namely tariff classification of spot-on solution for cats against fleas and ticks. One of the questions raised was whether permission to place a product on the market as a veterinary medicinal product means that the product should be classified as a medicinal product in the Combined Nomenclature.

Consequences of representing at customs without formal empowerment (Lithuania)
08-05-2021

Reader’s question. A customs brokerage firm acting as a direct representative must provide to customs the power of attorney for such representation (or a contract). What are the consequences of not providing it? Is the power of attorney valid, if on the part of the client, it was signed not by the executive of the company but by, for instance, the logistics manager?
