Export promotion programmes: Lithuania's case
15-01-2024

Exports of goods are an important driver of business productivity and economic growth (Mota et al., 2021). Nobody doubts the benefits of exporting today. The government aims to increase the competitiveness of business and industry in international trade and to promote job creation and economic growth by creating a business-friendly environment. Exports are an important part of business, both for the national economy and for the growth and development of businesses themselves. Economic growth, especially in small countries, is driven by foreign trade, making the promotion of exports a crucial task for a country. The dynamics and development of export growth depend on the implementation of a targeted export policy by the government, and exports are a key factor of economic growth for various countries, including Lithuania.

The customs posts and their impact on customs tax control
15-01-2024

The present research covers the interpretation of the concept of customs posts and the relationship with customs tax control. The analysis of the European Union (EU) regulations showed the essential criteria for customs posts. The Maturity model was also reviewed in order to implement the EU regulations requirements for customs posts. In customs posts the Maturity model must be used in three areas – tax administration, customs administration, and information technology implementation. To assess the practical situation, it was chosen to analyse high-risk customs posts. The situation of the Suwalki corridor and the three-month data collected by two customs posts at the Kybartai Road and Raigardas Road posts were reviewed. The analysis revealed that there is a lack of available data for researchers to conduct analysis and determine the impact of selected customs posts on customs tax control.

Customs taxes influence the decision of private persons on e-commerce in the European Union
15-01-2024

Customs taxes are a form of taxation imposed on goods imported into a country. They are typically levied on the value of the goods, and are intended to protect domestic industries from foreign competition. In the European Union (EU), customs duties are harmonized across all member states. This means that the same rate of duty is applied to the same goods, regardless of which EU country they are imported into, however, there are some exceptions to this rule. Also, not only Duties has to be paid before release to free circulation. E-commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services online. It has become increasingly popular in recent years, as it offers consumers a convenient and affordable way to shop. However, the growth of e-commerce has also led to an increase in the number of goods being imported into the EU. The influence of customs taxes on e-commerce imports can have a significant impact on private persons. For example, if a private person imports goods from a country outside of the EU, they may have to pay customs taxes on those goods. This can make imported goods more expensive, it can also take more time for delivery, and can discourage private persons from importing goods from outside of the EU. The following sections of this paper will explore this topic in more detail and will discuss the various factors that can influence the impact of customs taxes on e-commerce imports for private persons and propose a theoretical model of how customs taxes affect the e-commerce of private persons.

Customs brokers and their management: current challenges and the future
14-01-2024

Customs brokers are an important part of the customs ecosystem. Both parties - traders and customs - can benefit greatly from working with these professional intermediaries. Customs brokers take on the complex tasks related to customs clearance, protect and serve the interests of the parties involved while balancing their different needs (e.g. fast delivery vs. thorough control) and save them a lot of time so they can focus on their core activities. This topic is not new, and one might think that these areas of operation should already be established and standardised. However, discussions at the 19th Authors' Meeting showed that there are still more questions than answers in the countries of Europe and America.

Proposed U.S. Foreign Pollution Fee Act (similar to the EU’s CBAM)
14-01-2024

EU importers of cement, iron and steel, aluminium, fertilizers, electricity and hydrogen are preparing to submit their first report under the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM), based on emissions data from their third-country suppliers. What about other countries? Will they also introduce such climate measures, so that EU and other countries' suppliers (exporters) should be getting ready to prepare their emissions data? Indeed, there are similar initiatives in other countries, for example, the proposed U.S. Foreign Pollution Fee Act.

UK customs-related updates: BTOM, CDS (II)
14-01-2024

Despite officially leaving the EU’s single market in January 2021, the UK has delayed introducing full border controls several times due to concerns over cost and disruption. However, we now know that these post-Brexit checks on plant and animal goods coming into the UK from EU countries will begin at the end of January 2024. What does this mean for businesses importing these goods into the UK? We provide a summary of the changes coming into effect and how the trader can prepare for these stricter border controls.

Editors' note: Many economic operators in the EU and other UK trading partners are and will be affected by the ongoing customs changes in the UK. We start with a monthly overview of some important news from the UK. Many thanks to Mark Rowbotham, who recently joined the CCRM Editorial Board, for preparing the updates on the Border Target Operating Model (that will be progressively introduced from the end of January 2024) and the Customs Declaration Service (from 30 March 2024, the CDS will be the UK’s single Customs platform). Related developments are also interesting to follow for those who are not directly involved in trade with the UK but are interested in effective border management as the UK aims to create the most effective border in the world.

CBAM: History, objectives, scope, and its compatibility with international law (II)
03-01-2024

Note from the CCRM editors: The first part of the article provided an overview of the history, objectives and scope of the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) introduced by the EU. It also examined the issue of whether the Paris Agreement on climate change foresees border adjustment measures by countries with high climate ambitions, and posed the following question: Is the CBAM fair towards developing countries? In this second part, the author provides an overview of the provisions of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) which could justify the CBAM, his assessment of the CBAM Regulation, and shares a practical list of questions that companies can use in order to find out whether they are affected, and if so, how they can prepare to meet the CBAM requirements, in particular for the transitional period.
