Lowering the cost of goods by 56 times!

23.01.2020

In Odessa Customs, the mobile group of the Coordination and Monitoring Customs, due to doubts about the cost characteristics, was placed under the control of cargo “lead spare parts”, “shoes”, “auto spare parts and other” that came in the container. When analyzing the documents, it was noted that the names of the goods mentioned in the invoice do not contain the data necessary for the complete declaration of the goods, namely: trademark, articles and others. During the inspection of goods, the brands and articles were installed, the cost characteristics of such names as “LED bulbs” for car lighting were analyzed in the amount of 1567 units worth $ 1.35 per unit or 32 UAH per unit of goods according to the invoice. After analyzing the documents and analyzing the price characteristics of this product on the Internet, it was found that the cost of LED-lamps for cars is $ 35 per unit or 858 UAH per unit, which is a difference of 26 times! And it also analyzed such a product as “spare parts” for vehicles: a turbine of 539 units and cost $ 2.33 per kg, or $ 16.87 per unit, equal to 405 UAH per unit of goods according to the invoice. After analyzing the price characteristics of this product on the Internet, for example, “Turbocharger <TURBO S200G” it was found that the cost of this product is $ 954 per unit or 22910 UAH per item instead of 405 UAH specified in the invoice, which makes the difference 57 times! Most interestingly, the Odessa customs officers have no doubts about the depreciation of these goods and no measures are being taken to increase the revenues to the state budget. It is not a question of determining the methods of customs value or requiring additional documents to put yourself under the heat of a town, it is a matter of the State approach to the business you are doing !!! I hope for another additional replenishment of the state budget.
