The European Union and Japan have opened their markets to each other

While Tokyo is trading with Moscow on the Kuril Islands, Japanese business began trading duty-free with Europeans in the largest free trade area on the planet.

Whether Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will be the Japanese politician who will solve the Kuril Islands problem with Russia is not known. But he has already become the leader who provided his country with free access to the European market: February 1 entered into force on the creation of the world's largest free trade zone. The European Union and Japan, which together provide about one-third of global GDP, signed it in July 2018.
The agreement, which was not agreed with Trump
From now on, Japanese companies can export their products to the (for the present) 28 EU countries, the most powerful economic union in the world, in which about 446 millions of consumers will be living after the UK release. For European exporters, in turn, the third largest economy of the planet with a population of about 127 million opens up in full.
To this end, Brussels and Tokyo have been going for six years. At the same time, the EU tried to create an even larger free trade zone with the United States - the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), but nothing came of it. In turn, Japan entered into the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), but the United States immediately withdrew from Donald Trump's White House.
Thus, neither the Europeans nor the Japanese could find a common language in this area with the current US president, who prefers protectionism and isolationism. But they agreed with each other. So the new free trade zone is also an unequivocal signal towards Washington. And at the same time Beijing. Brussels and Tokyo have demonstrated: they are for further liberalization of world trade on a mutually beneficial basis, according to clearly defined market rules and observing strict standards for the protection of the rights of employees and consumers. In addition, for the first time, the provisions of the Paris Climate Agreement are included in international trade agreements.
New opportunities for European farmers
European exporters will feel a specific benefit very soon: every year they will save on customs duties of the order of one billion euros, said European Commission President (EU government) Jean-Claude Juncker. Moreover, in the future, industrial products from the European Union can be sold in Japan without additional certification.
The new free trade zone promises significant benefits to European farmers. So, from now on, they can deliver meat, dairy products and wine to the Land of the Rising Sun free of charge. In particular, Tokyo abolished the 30-percent duty, which until now was imposed on Gouda cheese. EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström expects 180 percent growth in food supplies to Japan, which would mean an increase in export earnings of about 10 billion euros.
According to the Ministry of Economy of Germany, with 1 February, since the entry into force of the agreement, the duties on 91 percent of all deliveries from the EU to Japan have been canceled. After the expiration of various transition periods, customs barriers for 99 percent of European exports to Japan will disappear.
The Japanese auto industry has protected itself from the "Brekzita"
In turn, the EU on the same day ceased to impose duties on 75 percent of imports from Japan, in the future, this figure will also be brought to almost 100 percent. Thus, over the course of 7, the years will decrease and eventually the duties will disappear in the amount from 10 to 22 percent, which have so far been levied on the importation of Japanese cars into the EU.
This item was for Tokyo, given the size of the Japanese auto industry, particularly important. Until now, some large manufacturers have avoided these customs barriers, supplying passenger cars to the EU domestic market from their factories in the UK. From now on, after its exit from the EU, it will be possible to deliver cars directly from Japanese enterprises. So the looming "Brexit" clearly accelerated the conclusion of the agreement.
Both sides are also liberalizing access to services. In addition, Japanese companies will now be able to participate in the EU in tenders for government orders. Accordingly, European firms in Japan will receive similar rights.
Now in line - Singapore and Vietnam
The EU-Japan Agreement has criticized various anti-globalization organizations, environmentalists and consumer advocates. One of the main accusations: the new free trade zone serves mainly the interests of big business, large corporations.
Thus, the opponents of the agreement believe that the abolition of duties in the agricultural sector is beneficial to extremely large agro-industrial companies and will hit small farms both in Europe and in Japan. There were also concerns that the privatization of water supply enterprises would be allowed in the new free trade zone, however, the agreements reached do not apply to this area.
On the whole, the creation of the EU’s free trade zone - Japan was surprisingly silent, especially if we recall how powerful opposition was caused by the TTIP talks with the United States or the much smaller European Agreement with Canada (CETA). At that time, tens of thousands of demonstrators, mostly of left-wing political orientation, took to the streets of European cities.
The Federal Association of German Industry (BDI), the leading organization of German business, welcomed the entry into force of the agreement with Japan and called on the EU authorities to support similar agreements with Singapore and Vietnam. “In this way, the EU would widely open economic doors to the rapidly growing region of Southeast Asia and prove that it is able to effectively protect European investment abroad,” said BDI board member Stefan Mair.
The European Parliament will consider a ready trade agreement with Singapore on February 13.

Customs has described three schemes for withdrawing money abroad

The main schemes are the use of forged documents, the repeated movement of the same goods across the border and the creation of one-day firms for contracts.
The Federal Customs Service (FCS) of Russia, together with Rosfinmonitoring, the Central Bank and the tax service, identified three main schemes for withdrawing money from the country abroad. About this in an interview with "Rossiyskaya Gazeta" said the head of the department of trade restrictions, currency and export control of the FCS Sergey Shklyaev.
The first scheme provides for the use of false declarations, invoices and foreign trade contracts for transactions that have never been carried out in reality. According to Shklyaev, now all data on suspicious transactions are transmitted through the Central Bank to banks via closed electronic channels, as well as to Rosfinmonitoring, which tracks currency transactions.
The second scheme, revealed by the customs officers, is called the “carousel”, when the same product moves across the border more than once. “At first, a non-resident sells it to a Russian company, which then assigns the rights to it to another firm. That again takes out the purchase abroad and transfers to the original supplier. So the goods can go back and forth several times, and every time they pay money for it, ”said Shklyaev.
He noted that the scheme could be found after the introduction of the customs system of risk management, inspections, evaluation and examination of goods. Customs officers also report all suspicious transactions to the Central Bank, Shklyaev stressed.
The third scheme is to create one-day firms for specific contracts. “The company concludes an agreement with the supplier and transfers the advance, and then disappears. Having discovered this, we bring the participant in foreign economic activity to administrative and criminal responsibility - depending on the damage, ”said Shklyaev.
According to him, over the past three years, the volume of doubtful operations in the customs sphere has decreased by 20 times, from $ 2,09 billion to $ 80,6 million. During 9 months of 2018, 36,6 billion rubles were illegally taken out of Russia, law enforcement agencies opened 354 criminal cases. For the same period in 2017, 31,5 billion rubles was withdrawn, as well as criminal cases were initiated by 232. In 2016, these figures amounted to 56,3 billion rubles. and 279 cases, respectively, in 2015 year - 46,7 billion rubles. and 220 cases respectively.

How to appeal a customs decision

In 2018, a new procedure for appealing decisions of customs authorities was introduced (Chapter 51 of the Federal Law No. 03.08.2018-FZ of 289 “On Customs Regulation in the Russian Federation and on Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation” (hereinafter the Law).
“The departmental appeal has a number of advantages as compared to the judicial appeal,” says the head of the Baltic Customs, Sergei Senko. “Complaints in the customs authorities are examined promptly, are not subject to a state duty, the applicant also does not bear any other financial costs: for the payment of lawyers' services, the collection of evidence, travel expenses.”
As noted in the Baltic Customs, the basic principle of appeal remains the same: any person has the right to appeal the decision, the action (inaction) of the customs authority and its official if, in the person’s opinion, such a decision, action (inaction) violated his rights, freedoms or legal interests, created obstacles to their implementation or illegally entrusted to him any obligation.
The complaint is filed with the superior customs authority through the customs authority, the decision of which is appealed. The complaint against the decision of the customs post is submitted to the customs. It should be noted that filing a complaint directly to a higher customs authority is not an obstacle for its consideration, however, the period of consideration in this case will increase.
The circle of persons filing complaints has not changed significantly: they are both legal entities, organizations that are not legal entities, and individuals. However, unlike the previous procedure, the new Law does not oblige managers acting on behalf of organizations without a power of attorney to submit, simultaneously with the complaint, constituent documents, as well as documents confirming their official position.
A complaint filed by a representative of an organization or a citizen must be accompanied by originals or certified copies of documents confirming his authority. The most common example of such a document is power of attorney. It should secure the right to appeal decisions, actions (inaction) in the field of customs.
The complaint must still be filed in writing and signed by the applicant or his representative, but from 1 in January of 2022, the law provides for filing a complaint in electronic form.
The complaint must be indicated:
• name of the customs authority, whose decision is being appealed;
• surname, name, patronymic of the applicant or the name of the legal entity;
• address (location);
• taxpayer identification number (TIN);
• the essence of the decision appealed, the action (inaction) and the grounds on which the person filing the complaint believes that his rights have been violated.
“The deadline for filing a complaint has not changed - three months from the day when the person became aware or should have known about the violation of his rights, freedoms or legitimate interests. If we are talking about inaction, the same period begins to run from the date of expiration of the term for the customs authority to take a decision or perform an action. In case of missing the deadline, it can be restored at the request of the applicant. An application for reinstatement is filed simultaneously with the complaint in writing as a separate document or may be included in the text of the complaint. At the same time, there must be submitted documents confirming the validity of the reasons for missing the deadline, ”SeaNews was told at the Baltic Customs.
Chapter 51 of the Law regulates in detail the procedure for the suspension of the contested decision. At the written request of the applicant, the decision being appealed, aimed at collecting customs payments due in connection with its adoption, may be suspended subject to the provision of a cash pledge or a bank guarantee for the amount of recovery. The decision on the suspension is the competence of the customs authority that made the decision appealed.
The customs authority has the right to refuse to consider the complaint on the merits if there is one of the grounds:
• if the time limits for appeal are not met, and the applicant has not filed a motion to restore the time limit for appeal, or such a motion is rejected;
• the form and content of the complaint do not comply with the Law;
• no documents confirming the authority of the applicant's representative are submitted;
• the complaint is filed by a person whose rights and freedoms or legitimate interests of the appealed decision are not affected or there is no subject of appeal;
• if the appealed decision of the customs authority or the circumstances to be established in connection with the consideration of the complaint are subject to review by the court;
• if there is already a decision on a similar complaint taken by the same or higher customs authority.
The decision to refuse to consider the complaint, in addition to non-compliance with the requirements for the form and content of the complaint and the non-submission of documents confirming the representative’s powers, prevents the same complaint from being resubmitted.
A complaint submitted in compliance with all the rules for its submission will be considered by the customs authority within one month from the date of its receipt. The term of consideration of the complaint may be extended, but not more than one month.
The Law provides for the right of the customs body considering the complaint to request additional documents from the applicant. In this case, the time period for consideration of the complaint is suspended until the requested documents and information are provided (no more than three months after the day the request was sent).
In writing, you can complain about decisions, actions of customs posts and their officials to the Baltic Customs. Oral - to a higher official of the customs or customs post. The decisions of the Baltic Customs can be appealed to the North-West Customs Administration.
It is noted that the legislation provides for another more operational way of obtaining information about the decision taken, the action (inaction) of customs officials, which also has a number of advantages compared with a judicial appeal. Thus, in accordance with Article 265 of the Law, a person has the right to make a request, both verbally and in writing, about the decision taken, the action (inaction) of customs officials to the customs authority that made the decision or committed the action (inaction). An oral request is considered by the customs authority on the day it is received. When submitting a written request, the answer must be given in writing within ten days from the date of its receipt.
In this case, the request must be filed within six months from the date of the decision, the action (inaction) or the expiration of their acceptance or commitment, or from the day when the person became aware of the decision or the action (inaction).

Foreign online stores connect option from Russian customs

Russian buyers of foreign online stores will have the opportunity to pay customs duties directly when buying on the site, it follows from the material of the Rossiyskaya Gazeta. Until January 2019, the Russians paid a fee at the post offices upon receipt of the goods.
Foreign online stores will be able to voluntarily connect a new option in the framework of the pilot project “Post of Russia” and the Federal Customs Service. The technological solution will allow them to immediately notify the buyer when the duty-free purchase threshold is exceeded.
Now the "ceiling" is 500 euro per month. For all the excess, a fee of 30% is provided. That is, when ordering parcels, for example, on 700 euro per month, the Russian will pay 30% with 200 euro.
When buying in a foreign online store that has connected to the project of remote payment of duty, the fee through the "Post of Russia" will be transferred immediately to the treasury. If the store is not involved in the project, the buyer will still pay a fee at the post office.
Earlier, the media wrote about the new possibility of the FCS to charge additional fees on parcels from China while understating the cost or weight.
According to Data Insight, for 2018 a year, the volume of purchases at foreign online stores in Russia (cross-border sales) in rubles increased by 29%, to 348 billion rubles.

Russian customs got access to information about shipments from China

The Federal Customs Service (FCS) has gained access to information about shipments from China, including data on their cost, weight, and frequency of receipt by a specific recipient. This measure is necessary to combat illegal imports, according to Vedomosti.
Obtaining detailed information about shipments became possible after signing a special memorandum with China. Requests to the customs authorities of any countries can be sent now, but without such agreements, the answer is not guaranteed, they told the FCS.
So far, Russian customs officials have access to information only about potential smuggling, as well as products that may violate intellectual property rights, but the list will expand in the future.
According to Artem Sokolov, President of the Association of Internet Trading Companies (AKIT), 70% of cross-border e-commerce is small household appliances, electronics, accessories, clothing and footwear. They are sent as goods for personal use, so they do not pass certification and are not taxed, although they later resell these products.
From European countries, the Federal Customs Service is already receiving information on parcels, notes Elena Belozerova, head of the Foreign Trade and Customs Law direction at BCLP Law Firm. But the Chinese customs authorities did not always respond to requests from Russian customs or did not provide the information that was required, she adds.
“Now the customs will know who sent, how often the same person receives the goods, what the weight of the parcel is, at what price it went,” Belozerova explained.

Arbitration took the side of entrepreneurs in a dispute with the fiscal authority

The Arbitration Court of the Chelyabinsk Region ruled in favor of the RusPromTehSnab company, which imports electric motors for grain crushers, in a dispute with the customs authorities. The fiscal authorities, as the instance found, illegally charged businesses for payments for imported equipment.

Conflicts related to additional payments — primarily duties — are permanent in the relationship between importers and customs officers. One of these resonant processes was a dispute between RusPromTehSnab LLC and the Chelyabinsk Customs, as previously described in detail by Pravda UrFO.
As you know, when importing goods into the Russian Federation in the declaration indicates its classification code, which is the basis for the calculation and calculation of customs duties. The customs authority has the ability to double-check the specified code and charge a multi-million dollar duty for the last three years of supplying this product. At the same time, the importer is not saved by the fact that deliveries can be carried out regularly for a long time under the same code, which previously did not cause any claims of fiscals.
“In September last year, customs initiated the inspection of our products. They opened the container, seized the engines for examination, and about a month later decided that the goods were incorrectly classified according to the customs code for the declaration of the TNVED, ”Pavel Goncharov, commercial director of RusPromTechSnab, recalls the sources of the conflict.
As a result, the product was, according to the head of the company, 11-interest duty. The amount of 1,5 mln rubles was written off from the company's current account. Since for the entire period of deliveries surcharge could reach 10 million rubles, Pavel Goncharov did not rule out the closure of society.
However, the customs officers themselves referred to the provisions of the law, allowing them to unilaterally review the results of previous inspections and charge additional fees. In some cases, the declarant may face criminal liability.
“If the key technical or qualitative characteristics of the goods are incorrectly indicated and this has affected its classification, then this fact forms the composition of an administrative offense, the sanctions for which can amount to two unpaid sum differences in the budget. In the case when the monetary difference is significant, the declarant may also fall under criminal liability, ”Stanislav Vasev, the deputy head of the Chelyabinsk Customs for economic activities, explained the actions of the employees.
However, during the preparation of the application to the court by lawyers representing the interests of the importer, it became clear that fiscal authorities committed a significant number of gross violations, including when revising the classification code.
“The most surprising thing is that the customs authority submitted to the case file two versions of the contested classification decisions, which differed from the decision sent to the declarant. That is, after the application was submitted to the court, the customs authority worked on the mistakes made by the customs authority and indicated as irregularities in the application to the court, but from the first time it did not work out all the errors, therefore another version of the decision for the same number from the same date as the decision being appealed. Total in the case file were three decisions of customs with different content. In addition, the customs claimed that the declarant imported a different type of engine than stated and documented the declarant. At the same time, the customs authority made conclusions based solely on the conclusions of customs experts who have no relation to electrical engineering, as it turned out in court, one of the customs experts is a radio amateur, and he was convinced that this was enough to be considered an expert.
It must be remembered that the expert of the Central Forensic Customs Administration, in which the product was studied and which is included in the structure of the customs authorities, is first of all the senior or chief, but definitely state customs inspector, therefore the expert opinion is not independent, complete and objective . That is why we filed a petition for a forensic examination, independent of the opinion and influence of the customs authority, which, in fact, confirmed our correctness, ”said Peter Lesnikov, managing partner of the foresters law firm, told the details of the process.
As a result, on December 17 arbitration ordered the return of illegally collected funds to the company. The court satisfied the requirements of RusPromTechSnab LLC, declared illegal the decision of Chelyabinsk customs from 6 of September 2017 on the classification of goods by TNVED, ordered the state body to return to society the excessively charged customs payments, and also to recover from the Chelyabinsk customs legal costs in the amount of 172 rubles, and RUB and RUB for the amount of X. in the amount of 3 thousand rubles.
Experts meanwhile pay attention to the significance of the decision of the instance for Russian importers. “Despite the unprecedented law in the Russian Federation, the judiciary constantly analyzes previous court decisions. Therefore, we can safely say that the decision made yesterday will allow entrepreneurs to save millions of rubles, and sometimes save the business from bankruptcy, ”said the source, specializing in legal disputes with customs authorities.
