Ozon criticized the work of eBay and AliExpress in Russia

Ozon believes that eBay and AliExpress have received an unfair advantage over Russian retailers because they do not pay duties and VAT in Russia. This was stated by the head of Ozon Mael Gave at the forum RIW2014.

“They compete here in unfair conditions, because they are subject to benefits that Russian online stores do not have,” Gave said. According to her, the problem is that Russian stores must pay import duties and VAT when selling goods, while if the goods are introduced from abroad, then the store that sold it, which does not have a legal presence in Russia, is not subject to taxes and does not pay VAT.

Mael Gavet believes that consumers themselves may be the victims. “In the short term, I can say:“ Great, I pay for a cup 30% cheaper, because I will give jobs to the Chinese and the company will not pay taxes in Russia. But in two or three years I will not have a job because all the work will be in China and Europe, ”says Gave. According to her, Russian and foreign stores should have equal conditions for doing business in the country. “We do not pretend to solve the problem for the state, but we believe that the conditions should be equal. In many countries, including China, overseas shops pay duty and VAT. Russia is an exception in this respect, but in a bad sense, ”she concluded.
