EAEU change simplified procedure for customs declaration of goods

On October 1, 2021, Decision No. 138 of the Eurasian Economic Commission’s Board dated October 27, 2020 will come into effect to provide for amendments to the procedure for customs declaration of goods using transport (transportation), commercial and (or) other documents as a declaration for goods.

Now, during a simplified customs declaring procedure, participants of foreign economic activities will have to submit an e-declaration for goods in respect of which duties and taxes should be paid, except in cases where such an electronic form is formed by the customs authority in accordance with the EAEU States’ legislation.

The decision also establishes special aspects of filling in adjustments to the declaration for goods after releasing goods in case when a change of data affects the amount of duties and taxes to be paid as well as the procedure for making amendments in any other case.

The decision provides a uniform approach to reflecting information on the calculation and payment of duties and taxes as well as transparency when it comes to the transfer and distribution of import customs duties, safeguard, anti-dumping and countervailing duties.
