The Government of the Russian Federation will establish the order rate in online stores

The State Duma adopted in the first reading a bill that allows the Russian government to quickly change the norms of duty-free import into Russia of goods ordered by citizens in online stores.

The draft law gives the government the right to establish norms for duty-free import of goods for personal consumption, forwarded by international mail, as well as delivered by carriers to individuals. Thus, the government will be able to establish additional restrictions on the import of such goods.

Deputy Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Sergey Shatalov, introducing the bill, recalled that now the procedure for exemption from customs duties and other customs payments in respect of goods delivered by mail from abroad within the framework of the Customs Union is regulated by an intergovernmental agreement between Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus.

In accordance with it, mail or express delivery is exempted from customs payments if the total cost of goods delivered within a month does not exceed 1 thousand euros and the total weight during the month does not exceed 31 kg. If these thresholds are exceeded, a duty of 30% of the customs value of the goods will be charged.

"None of the three states has managed to establish administration in such a way as to track both the price and weight parameters of the delivered goods in relation to each recipient of such goods. Therefore, it is assumed that in the future, changes will be made to the agreement between the three states," the deputy minister said. ...
