Keep an eye on customs case law or Who has enough money to throw away?
03-04-2022

‘Compliance’ with statute law has given rise to a lot of publications and debates. However, when considering compliance, it should not be forgotten that case law also influences a company’s organisation and processes. Can you think of any court cases which are having an effect on your internal operations? Using the current proceedings on ‘reimbursement interest’ as an example, this contribution shows that court rulings can influence customs practice in companies and so it is important that you follow court proceedings from the outset. This is because even pending proceedings may enable you to earn money with customs or at least avoid throwing it away. Court judgements do not always operate to the detriment of the economic participant.

Do we have time to prepare for the introduction of trade defence measures?
31-12-2021

Importers, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, are often unaware of trade defence instruments (TDIs) and face the consequences of newly introduced measures unprepared, thus incurring unforeseen costs. Is it possible to prepare for this and thus, albeit partially, manage the risks associated with the introduction of TDIs? One mean to manage such risks would be regular monitoring of the regulatory environment. Of course, this requires resources, but it is equally important to know the process and deadlines for setting the TDI, as well as why different sizes of measures apply to the same product imported from the same non-EU country and where to find the necessary information. Thus, this is to be discussed in the article.

Trąšos. Paskutiniu metu nuolat girdime: baltarusiškų trąšų tranzitas, rusiškų trąšų importas. Ši tema ne tik spaudoje nuolat gvildenama, ją nagrinėja ir teismai. Apžvelgsime aktualią Lietuvos vyriausiojo administracinio teismo nutartį trąšų apmokestinimo importo mokesčiais (antidempingo muitu) byloje. Verslas ginčijo Muitinės laboratorijos išvadas dėl prekės klasifikavimo, tad prisiminsime ir žinias šia tema, kuriomis dalinosi pranešėjai š.m. gruodį vykusioje 5-oje Muitinės praktikų konferencijoje, kurią rengė Muitinės praktikų asociacija.

Anti-dumping duties. Is the tariff classification of goods still important?
09-12-2021

In recent case law, the Court of Justice of the European Union clarified what determines the application of anti-dumping duties on specific goods, such as tariff classification of goods or other criteria. Although different criteria are preferred in practice, for the first time, a step has been taken to separate the tariff classification from the characteristics of the product subject to trade regulation measures.

The fall and partial rise of EU-US trading relations
13-11-2021

In spite of recent challenges, the EU-US trading relationship is underpinned by deeply integrated economies. The European Commission website describes this relationship as defining world trade and contributing as much as 40% to world GDP. Despite both the EU and the USA being modern developed economies, competition for global market share in addition societal changes brought about by an increase in globalisation has influenced trade policy. This has been particularly evident during the Trump presidency. This article tracks this difficult spell that we look to be emerging from and looks forward to what is hoped will be a détente in trade tensions between the two trading powerhouses on either side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Governments should consider waiving taxes on transport costs until we are back to “normal”
06-11-2021

The exponential increase in transport costs over the past few months has placed a strain on importers and on economic recovery. One solution would be for governments to waive taxes on these costs. In Israel, the law already allows for such an exemption in the case of special circumstances beyond the importer’s control.

Planning tariff changes: suspensions
28-09-2021

The possibility of tariff suspensions is actively used by businesses in the EU - importers save significant amounts of duties. It is also important for EU exporters, for instance, exporting their products to the UK, where tariff suspensions are used as well and may result in increased demand for certain products from the EU. We are talking to Žydrė Bartaškienė, Adviser of the Tariff Division of the Customs Department, about various aspects of this topic - news, tariff classification of goods, financial planning in business, and others.

The case study is about a company, which brings in a lot of equipment and manufactures some equipment in Northern Ireland (which is in a unique situation as it has become part of two customs territories this year - the UK and the EU) and then exports 95% of its products again. What does the company need to do to engage in the new customs environment between GB, Northern Ireland and the EU?

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.
