CJEU guidelines on the selection of identical or similar goods for determining the customs value

Photo by Tom Paolini on Unsplash

Customs administration shall exercise due care in analysing the facts, gathering information and evidence for the use of each of the alternative methods for determining the customs value. This includes the duty of the customs authorities to consult all the information sources and databases available to them. Are customs authorities obliged to check information systems maintained by the EU? May identical or similar imports (which have not been challenged) of the same trader be excluded? What is the period, in which identical or similar imports are considered to be ‘made at the same or around the same time’? We look at the CJEU's answers to these questions.

Kaip sutaupyti importo mokesčių? arba Kuo svarbi pirmoji įvežimo į ES vieta?
01-02-2023

Skaitytojo klausimas: Prekės iš Taivano FOB sąlygomis gabenamos į Klaipėdą. Pakeliui Hamburgo uoste perkraunamos (tik perkraunamos, daugiau niekas neatliekama) iš vieno konteinerinio laivo į kitą. Ar importuotojas gali transportavimo Hamburg – Klaipėda kaštus traukti tik į PVM apmokestinamąją vertę (t. y. neapmokestinti muitu)? Jei taip, ką daryti tokiu atveju, kai vežėjo sąskaitoje yra nurodyta bendra suma už visą maršrutą – ar užtektų jo pažymos dėl transportavimo kainos Hamburg - Klaipėda?

Customs valuation of raw materials and waste as subject of the circular economy
18-01-2023

In the EU Customs Valuation Compendium, we can find a Commentary on the customs valuation of waste. The need for regulation of this topic is growing together with an aim to meet the objectives of the circular economy. The Commentary is one of the newest interpretative instruments that has been published, so let's take a look at the clarifications it provides, including a practical case study.

Adjustment of the customs value of goods: judicial clarification in the Hamamatsu case
18-01-2023

The German Federal Tax Court has ruled in a case referred to the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) for clarification. The main question put to the CJEU was: can the transaction value be based on the initial price paid if a fixed adjustment is subsequently applied, calculated by means of a pro rata apportionment mechanism, despite the fact that at the end of the year, in the event of an adjustment, there will be a repayment of import duties or an additional payment? The CJEU has given a striking, albeit not entirely clear, ruling in a case that retrospective adjustments (upward or downward) to transfer pricing are not taken into account in determining the customs value of goods. Here is an overview of the case and the highlights of the German court's decision.

Baltic Master case in the CJEU: once again about related persons and the use of customs valuation IS
31-07-2022

On 13.06.2022, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a decision in the Baltic Master case (C-599/20) on two relatively unrelated issues. The first, whether customs must establish an objective legal relationship between the buyer and the seller in order to consider them as related persons. The second, whether customs can rely on the value of a single comparable transaction found on the national customs valuation information system (IS), denying the acceptance of the declared value of the goods (air conditioning units). In this article, we discuss interpretations provided by the CJEU; and we look forward for the national verdict of the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania (SACL).
