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

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.

The European Union Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism – the launch in 2023
29-01-2023

In mid-December 2022, negotiators of the Council and the European Parliament reached an agreement of a provisional and conditional nature on the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM). The agreement needs to be confirmed by ambassadors of the EU member states, and by the European Parliament, and adopted by both institutions before it is final. However, according to the agreed timetable, the transition period for its implementation is set to come into force in October 2023. What should companies do?

One court case - two lessons: tariff quotas, invalidation of a customs declaration and potential risks
28-12-2022

Tariff quotas mean less or no duty when importing goods. Most tariff quotas are allocated on a first come, first served basis; therefore, the timing of lodging a customs declaration might be crucial. What if, due to issues concerning customs IT systems, you are late and the quota is exhausted? Can you ask customs to invalidate the customs declaration and wait until the new tariff quota is opened?

Customs always rings twice: the risk of paying duties through customs agents
18-12-2022

There are various methods how you can pay import duties and taxes. One of them – paying through the agent clearing house bank account. What happens if the agent declares insolvency after receipt of payment – will the importer be required to pay to the State or not? Should the activity of an agent be strictly regulated to prevent situations like this?
