Large-scale customs reforms carried out in the EAEU

In the Eurasian Economic Union (Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan and Armenia), large-scale customs reforms have been carried out since 2018, as reported by the information and analytical portal belmy.by, RK-News reports. These reforms provide for a reduction in direct communication between business representatives and customs officers, and will use electronic channels more often for processing goods passing across borders, which will reduce queues and the collection of documentation for declaration. Meanwhile, the first virtual customs and remote declaration centers have already started their work. In addition, an experiment was conducted by the customs authorities of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Kazakhstan, during which they monitored the transit of goods using electronic navigation seals. This year, similar measures are planned to be carried out jointly by the Belarusian and Russian customs services, as the head of the Federal Customs Service of Russia V. Bulavin informed. Such navigation seals store complete information about the goods being moved, including deviations from the route, hacking attempts, etc. At the same time, the Federal Customs Service of Russia and the Customs Committee of Belarus plan to implement joint measures to combat gray supplies: products will be tracked from customs to cash register retail checks.

Corruption scandal in the capital of the Far East: customs fights with officials

Customs again in the center of the scandal ... but from the wrong side. People in epaulets accuse officials of corruption, and an elite construction site is accused of illegally obtaining a building permit. With such an appeal, the Vladivostok branch of the Russian Customs Academy appealed to the prosecutor's office and the governor of Primorsky Krai, DEITA.RU became known.
Construction began last fall a few meters from the training building of the Customs Academy - two 24-storey buildings with underground parking, Region Stroy LLC began building on Strelkovaya, 16в. The fact that the construction is in “inadmissible proximity” to the educational buildings of the PTA and interferes with learning is another half the trouble, the fact that customs officials are worrying about the foundation of their academic building is also. The management of the Vladivostok branch of the Customs Academy suspects that the building permit was issued illegally. The applicants stated their arguments in the appeal to the prosecutor's office of the Primorsky Territory (the document is available to the editors).
It says that the land plot was leased in May 2014 by the Department of Land and Property Relations of the Territory represented by Natalia Sokolova to complete the construction of the unfinished construction object (residential building) by the degree of readiness 5,4%
However, on the land plot located opposite the building of the educational and administrative building of the Vladivostok branch of the Russian Customs Academy, there are no unfinished projects, the applicants believe. According to the PTA staff, trees have been growing on this site for many years, and construction work has never been done.
In this regard, the Vladivostok branch of the PTA asks the prosecutor's office to check the legality of the lease agreement and to verify the presence of a corruption component in the actions of the officials who leased the land plot.
Appeals were also sent to the administration of Primorsky Krai, the administration of Vladivostok, the transport prosecutor's office, the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and other supervisory and regulatory authorities (copies of the letters are available to the editors). However, verbose correspondence with officials has not yielded any results.
The past administration of the city of Vladivostok, which issued the construction permit in April of 2018, insists that all the “documents are checked for compliance with the current legislation” and the section holds “Completion of construction of unfinished construction projects in multi-storey car parks along Strelkovaya Street 18 by reconstructing them. ” Additionally emphasizing that the contractor did not issue permits for the demolition of green spaces.
The editors of DEITA.RU were also curious and looked at google maps - indeed, only forest is in the pictures. It is noteworthy that the former director of the land department of the region, Natalya Sokolova, who now works in the mayor's office, which appears in this case, has a rather rich history of such litigation in all kinds of "incomplete". How the new land scandal in the Far Eastern capital will end is unknown. However, this is not the first such case — a similar scheme can be traced in the land scandal of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, where one of the contractors also received a land plot for the completion of the unfinished construction project. However, space images for some reason do not display those. Probably the satellite was wrong ...

Importers of feed additives have complained about the addition of 2 billion rubles. VAT

The additional charge of VAT for the import of feed additives in Russia can lead to bankruptcy of companies and an increase in prices for Russian livestock products. The president of the Russian Grain Union, Arkady Zlochevsky, warned about this in a letter to Deputy Prime Minister Alexei Gordeyev.
Over the past 14 years, importers of feed additives have been paying VAT at a preferential rate of 10%, declaring their goods when imported as “products used for feeding animals”. They are included in the list of goods approved by a government decree, which are taxed at the 10% rate.
But since 2017, the Federal Customs Service has begun demanding importers of feed additives to recalculate VAT from 10 to 18% and pay the difference over the past three years, Zlochevsky Gordeeva writes (23 has a copy of the letter from 2019 in March). A different approach of the FCS and importers of feed additives in the calculation of VAT may cost the last 2 billion rubles, given in the letter calculations based on estimates of the Ministry of Finance.
Food products and vitamins are part of the premix - vitamin and mineral supplements to animal feed. According to the National Fodder Union, the turnover of the premix market in 2018 amounted to about 63 billion rubles, and the production volume was about 472,7 thousand tons. More than 90% of the ingredients for premixes are imported, said executive director of the union Sergey Mikhnyuk.
The situation may end in bankruptcy of suppliers of imported feed additives, which will lead to price jumps on Russian premixes and adversely affect the cost of domestic livestock products, warns the president of the Russian Grain Union and asks the deputy prime minister to help solve the problem.
RBC sent a request to the representative Gordeev.
Earlier, business ombudsman Boris Titov turned to Gordeev with a request to pay attention to the situation. He said that at the end of December 2018, the Ministry of Finance published a letter stating that when importing feed additives to them, the VAT rate 18% should be applied, and from 1 January 2019 - 20%. At the same time, according to the changes in the government decree of 6 December 2018, the feed additives were included in the list of goods subject to preferential VAT 10%, but the norm takes effect only from the new tax period, which comes 1 April 2019. According to the information of the business ombudsman, the FCS is currently checking the already completed transactions on the import of feed additives for retrospective additional VAT charges up to 2,5 billion rubles. Titov asked the vice-premier to initiate conciliation procedures in the government in order to save importers of feed additives from massive VAT assessment on such transactions.

Customs does not give the go-ahead. Why baby food may disappear from store shelves

Purereshki and pap for the little ones may disappear from the shelves of stores in Russia. All because of the fact that soon will come into force the new rules for the importation of baby food, for which manufacturers do not have time to prepare. However, the Ministry of Agriculture claims that at the same time a fake will leave the market. The shortage of which products should be expected and for whom it will hit harder - in the “360” material.
On the eve of the Customs Union Commission submitted proposals to tighten control over the transportation of food across the border. The document passed the first stage of discussion and can be adopted on April 11. According to him, veterinary certificates and import permits will need to be issued for certain groups of goods, and manufacturers must be included in the register of enterprises of third countries. In particular, the new rules on carriage relate to imported products in which animal fat is replaced by vegetable. This category includes baby food, diet products and a number of dietary supplements.
The initiative has already been welcomed by the Ministry of Agriculture. Such rules will save the Russian market from the dominance of counterfeit products, told the "Kommersant" in the department. "The measure will be implemented in the framework of electronic veterinary certification and will not affect the bona fide suppliers," representatives of the ministry promised.
However, the largest manufacturers of baby food have a different opinion. As “360” was told in Danone Russia, due to the new transportation rules, some types of baby porridge and mashed potatoes may disappear from the shelves. According to the estimates of the holding, now in the country the share of imports in this segment reaches 90%, which will inevitably lead to a shortage of products on the market.
"The decision may lead to disruption of product supply, primarily due to the fact that the market was given only a month to prepare for it - until April 11, and the conditions for meeting the new requirements are not clarified," the manufacturer stresses.
According to the current document, the measures will be as tough as possible: European manufacturers of products must begin to issue veterinary certificates for deliveries, enter the official list of importers of the EAEU, their plants must be tested by the Russian regulatory authorities, it is necessary to issue an import permit.
“According to the experience of market participants, such procedures take more than one year. However, importers are still not aware of exactly what requirements will be imposed at all when importing goods starting April 11. Preliminary consultations with customs experts show that there is no single interpretation of the new situation, ”warn the press service of Danone.
At the same time, import restrictions apply not only to the products themselves, but also to the ingredients for the production of infant formula in Russia: vitamin-mineral complexes, ingredients containing casein, lactalbumin, highly concentrated whey protein, chemically pure lactose, and other substances, says Danone.
As a result, if the new rules come into force, then children and adolescents with special nutritional needs will suffer first of all, market participants interviewed by 360 will explain. This will affect the segment of specialized products for children with certain diseases or complex health conditions: severe allergies, metabolic disorders, prematurity. The list includes special products, adapted mixtures, you will find them more often in pharmacies than in stores, since they are part of the treatment of these diseases, are prescribed for medical reasons.
“And for children under one year old they can be the only source of food. Nevertheless, now in Russia about 5-7% of the total volume of sold infant formula is counterfeit. Therefore, we must act very carefully here, ”said State Duma Deputy Alexei Kurinniy in a conversation with 360.
Dr. Isabella Stefanova, Doctor of Technical Sciences, and the chief researcher of the technology laboratory of children's and special products, is in solidarity with the deputy. According to her, domestically produced baby food products are really lacking in the market.
“Producers prefer not to invest in this segment due to its low profitability. Even with the current situation on the shelves there is a shortage of baby food, which is produced, for example, from poultry meat. If the import is removed, the situation will become worse, ”predicts the interlocutor of“ 360 ”.
At the same time, to prevent the inevitable shortage, the business has already voiced its options. Danone proposes to exclude from the list of products products containing less than 50% animal fat, and to establish a transitional period of at least 2,5 year.

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.
