Definition

“Import taxes” - the term is used to define the totality of customs-administered taxes (taxes paid to customs administrations/ authorities) applied in the EU, which, in accordance with the national legislation of the EU and EU Member States, are levied on imports of goods, including customs duties, import VAT and excise duties. These taxes are distinguished by the fact that their calculation (determination of the moment of taxation, taxable value, definition of taxpayers and other tax elements) is also based on customs legislation.

Databases

The EU duty tariff applicable to a product can be found by entering the product code (eight-digit Combined Nomenclature code) in the TARIC database. VAT and excise duties are national taxes, their rates are indicated in national databases, for example, in Lithuania LITAR, in Germany EZT. A single database for all the import taxes is Access2Markets.

One car for me, another one for the state - import taxes in Israel
30-10-2022

An excellent article published in CCRM about one year ago reviewed the main import taxes in Brazil, the EU and Ukraine and the means and basis of calculation. The article demonstrated that, in some cases, the import taxes exceed the value of the goods themselves, meaning that the taxes are more than 100%. I may comment that, in my view, the State of Israel is kind of a pioneer in this field. In several sectors, Israel imposes very high import taxes, especially on passenger cars, where the taxes exceed the value of a car.

Anti-dumping measures may be applied against imports of a product at an export price below its ‘normal value’ (usually the price of the product in the domestic market of the exporting country) if such dumped imports cause injury to a domestic industry.

Extinction of customs debt - does it include VAT and excise?
25-09-2022

Knowing how provisions of one or another customs and tax legislation are applied, protects business from financial and time losses intended for the resolution of disputes in courts. In this review of the judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union, we draw attention to the aspects related to excise duty and VAT debt for goods illegally imported into the EU from the third countries - whether it is extinguished together with the import duty debt.
