It is associated with the procedure CCC basic number of lawsuits arising in the field of customs. For traders adjustment of customs value of this additional cost (and often very significant).

The notion of the customs value is the basic concept in the field of international freight. Customs value, under current legislation, defined as the sum, which includes all the costs that were incurred by the importer for the purchase and importation of goods into the territory of the Russian Federation.

Customs value declared by the importer in declaring cargo through the production and submission of the declaration of customs value (TPA), which is served along with DT. Also an importer must provide the customs authority of a complete package of supporting documents.

But often the customs authority does not agree with the declared customs value of the importer. This may be due to several reasons. First of all, customs guidance documents for each category of goods, there are control values ​​of the customs value. If the value of the goods is less than the corresponding control value, the customs authority is almost always endeavor to implement the CCC, even if the customs value documented.

If the size of the CCC customs payments increased slightly, or the importer does not have sufficient documentation to confirm the value of the goods he usually agrees with the adjustment. If the importer has all the necessary documents that he may refuse to recognize the CCC. In this case, the customs authority is made a request for declaring additional documents confirming the value of the declared value.
