31-01-2024

Praėjusius metus Lietuvos vyriausiasis administracinis teismas baigė ir naujus 2024 m. pradėjo priimdamas 3 nutartis susijusias su prekių tarifiniu klasifikavimu.

Combined Nomenclature 2024 (and how we... classify dragons)
26-11-2023

Editors’ word: 2024 is the year of the wood dragon (Chinese zodiac sign). How do we classify such a dragon? :-) We can start the discussion with wood and its products, among which we find a dragon tree* (4407 29), and an old legend says that when a dragon dies, it is reborn as a dragon tree... such an interesting fact in the run-up to the New Year. Despite the importance of dragons in 2024, we won't find anything new about them in next year's Combined Nomenclature. However, we invite you to take a look at the other changes - check for any new developments related to your imports or exports. Thank you to Virginija Dordzikienė for the overview.

A storm in a tea kettle
17-09-2023

A few days ago, an Israeli court accepted a claim by an importer of electric kettles against the customs authority, regarding the classification of the products for customs purposes. The court adopted the importer's position that the kettles should be classified in subheading 851610 of the HS as "immersion heaters" and rejected the customs position to classify them in subheading 851670 as "other electro-thermal devices". This ruling is an example of the court's creative interpretation of old terms, considering the advancement of technology.

Cat scratching post - is it a piece of furniture (CN 9403)?
20-07-2023

Fertilisers, honey, car seat parts, inflatable couches, etc. These are just a few of the goods on the classification of which the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) has recently ruled. In the present case, the question was whether a cat scratching post could be classified as other furniture and parts thereof (heading 9403 of the Combined Nomenclature (CN)). Or is furniture understood to mean objects intended only for human use?

Case of classification of unassembled goods OR How to save €389 973?
30-04-2023

An unassembled good must be classified as a complete good. For example, if you import disassembled bicycles, you still have to declare them as bicycles and pay the import duties due on the bicycles. But maybe you could be smarter and save the import duties by declaring half of the bicycles’ parts in your name and the other half in a friend's name? In addition, perhaps it would help to place the parts under different customs procedures before releasing them for free circulation?

Galimai sankcionuojamų prekių klasifikavimo iššūkiai
30-04-2023

Aktualioje administracinio nusižengimo byloje vėl buvo sprendžiamas „amžinas“ klausimas, į kurį aiškaus atsakymo teismų praktika taip ir nesuteikia: Ar privalo deklarantas fiziškai tikrinti prekes prieš jas deklaruojant muitinei, jei nekyla abejonė dėl duomenų teisingumo? Antra vertus, gal ji turėtų visuomet kilti, jei prekė gali būti sankcionuojama? Bei kitas, retesnis klausimas: Ar gali muitinės pareigūno surašytas Prekės klasifikavimo aktas tapti juridiniu pagrindu pakeisti prekės kodą, ar vis tik reikalinga Muitinės laboratorijos išvada?

Car seat protector and pocket net: parts or accessories?
16-04-2023

Can the net for making pockets in the rear part of seats and the protection for the inside of seats be classified under subheading 9401 90 80 of the Combined Nomenclature (CN) as parts of seats? The "value" of the answer to the importer is EUR 300 000! The Court of Justice of the European Union has provided clarification on this point.

The classification of goods – It’s what you don’t know that brings you in trouble
26-03-2023

This is not a scientific paper claiming to be absolutely complete - it is rather a short examination (born out of the practitioner’s view) of the complexity of classification based on a simple article (with minor variations) and a pointing out of the (often, usually) missing information to classify an article completely (automated?) based on existing (tabular?) data. Let us now consider the complexity of classification in the EU nomenclature using a simple example. Let's take as an example a screw, more precisely a hexagon head screw.

Classification of a pipe transportation device: an article of aluminium or a container?
12-03-2023

Let's take a look at the second judgement issued by the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) earlier this year on the tariff classification of goods (the first one was on classification of inflatable couches). This case is about a pipe transportation device: Should it be classified as an article of aluminium or a container? Accordingly, the import duty rate is 6% or 0%. The CJEU also clarified what a ‘container’ means for tariff classification purposes.

This shows that business is constantly confronted with questions of the proper classification of goods, which, for certain goods, we will overview. In this article, let’s start with the classification of inflatable couches: Are they furniture or camping equipment? The duty tariff would be 3.7% or 12%, respectively.

Inward processing in the EU: Does the duty rate always depend on the commodity code for the goods?
09-03-2023

Classification under a tariff subheading is not an end in itself but serves to determine which measures, tariff or other, should be applied to the goods concerned. However, in case of inward processing in the EU, the question has been raised, whether the duty rate of the processed goods at the time of release for free circulation must be applied in certain cases even though the tariff classification, customs value, and origin of the imported goods are the basis for the duty calculation.
