Payment of indirect taxes and customs duties is an indispensable condition of the majority of customs procedures. Forecasting the fiscal loading and its possible optimisation is one of the main questions of any import and export transaction. Often in this regard, participants of foreign trade activity are in doubt in terms of the correct determination of customs cost used to calculate customs duties and taxes, definition of HS code, and the grounds for application of tax benefits and relief for payment of customs duties.
Today, the largest complexity for traders of foreign trade activities is represented by administration, collection of VAT on import, and excises within the Customs Union. Special attention should be also given to the issues of payment of taxes and customs duties at placing of goods under the procedure "free economic zone" and at importing goods under the contract of financial leasing.
