Car wars: the EU announced additional tariffs on imports of Chinese battery electric vehicles
20-06-2024

China is facing increasing pressure over exports of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) as a number of countries contemplate applying measures to protect domestic markets from what they consider to be unfair and market-distorting subsidisation by the Chinese government. On 12 June 2024, the European Commission pre-disclosed new tariffs as a result of an anti-subsidy investigation launched towards the end of 2023. This follows 100% applied on Chinese BEVs introduced by the US in May 2024 and a 40% tariff on conventional and hybrid vehicle imports from China imposed by Turkey earlier in June.

Introduction of advance rulings system in Côte d’Ivoire
14-06-2024

In 2023, Côte d’Ivoire introduced a new and modern system of advance customs rulings. This development followed two workshops organised in Côte d’Ivoire in May 2023 with the German Alliance for Trade Facilitation and under the aegis of the EU-WCO Programme for the Harmonized System in Africa funded by the EU. The workshops were part of a wider capacity-building programme to support Côte d’Ivoire in meeting its WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement obligations - in particular, Article 3 of the TFA which requires signatory parties to provide an option to apply advance rulings on origin and classification.

The impact of the Turkish-Israeli trade crisis on the region
09-06-2024

Recently, trade relations between Turkey and Israel have been shaky. Although Turkey and Israel have had a free trade agreement for many years, Turkey announced that it would stop all trade with Israel, to which Israel responded that it intended to abolish the free trade agreement and also impose additional 100% tariffs on imports from Turkey. This crisis will not only affect the two parties, but possibly also EU traders.

Transfer pricing - EU law
12-11-2023

Transfer pricing is a rule that was designed in international taxation to establish which part of the income within a multinational enterprise needs to be allocated between two companies in the same group if they have a transaction between them. The rule, in general, is that they need to act as if they were third parties in order to establish the third-party price. Transfer pricing is important for determining the customs value of goods.
