Rada raises value of goods that can be sent abroad without written declaration to 1,000 euros from 150 euros

MOSCOW. March 21 (Interfax) - The Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada has raised the threshold of the value of goods that can be sent abroad using international mail or express delivery services without a written customs declaration, Ukrainian media have reported.

Amendments contained in a bill on customs control and bio-methane clearance stipulates that goods whose total customs value is not higher than 1,000 euros can be sent abroad without a written declaration.

Businesses previously had to submit written customs declarations while sending goods valued at over 150 euros.

The document stipulates that a mail operator or an express delivery service must submit an additional register of international mail or express delivery items if the goods are not subject to an export duty or restrictions provided for in Customs Code Article 197.

Daniil Getmantsev, chairman of the Rada's Financial, Tax, and Customs Policy Committee, said on his social account that he expected the amendments to help businesses reduce their costs and speed up logistics.

As reported, the Rada passed a bill amending the Ukrainian Customs Code with regard to the customs clearance of bio-methane.
