Definition

"Customs duties“ ("tariffs“) - although at present the precise definition is not directly enshrined in EU law, on the basis of case law of the Court of Justice of the EU (see cases 2/62 and 3/62, Commission of the European Economic Community v Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and Kingdom of Belgium; cases 52 and 55/65, Federal Republic of Germany v Commission of the EEC; Case 7/68, Commission v. Italy), they are understood as taxes, calculated on the basis of the tariffs to be paid by the importer to the host country, which make the imported product more expensive than a competing domestic product.

The concept of "customs duties" is generally used separately from the broader concept of "tariff trade regulatory measures (methods)", which is broader and includes not only customs duties but also tariff quotas and suspensions from duties.

Tinkamas importo akcizų administratorius teismų praktikos vertinimu: VMI ar muitinė?
04-09-2021

Praktikoje kartas nuo karto kyla klausimai kas yra tinkamas importo akcizo mokesčio administratorius – muitinė ar Valstybinė mokesčių inspekcija (VMI) ir kuriais atvejais? Tai ypač aktualu tais atvejais, kai importuotos akcizais apmokestinamos prekės vėliau buvo perdirbtos ir eksportuotos, kas, savo ruožtu, sudaro pagrindą svarstyti klausimą atleisti jas nuo akcizo mokesčio. Akivaizdu, jog praktiniu požiūriu itin svarbu žinoti, kuris mokesčio administratorius – muitinė ar VMI - turėtų spręsti tokį klausimą ir kokia tvarka (procedūra) bei kuomet? Straipsnyje, remiantis naujausia Lietuvos vyriausiojo administracinio praktika bei išaiškinimais, aptariami minėti probleminiai aspektai bei pateikiami atsakymai į nurodytus klausimus.

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?
