During January 2019, GFS customs issued 9,700 certificates for the transportation of goods EUR.1, which facilitate the entry of goods into the European market.
In January, the SFS issued almost 10 thousand certificates for the transport of goods in the EU
This is the press service of the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine.
“In order to obtain preferential access to the EU market within the framework of a free trade zone between Ukraine and the EU, it is necessary to confirm the origin of goods from Ukraine and obtain a certificate for the transport of goods of the EUR.1 form,” the message says.
It is noted that in January 2019, the customs authorities of the SFS issued 9,707 certificates for the transport of goods EUR.1. In general, during 2016–2018, GFS customs issued 219 thousand certificates for the transportation of EUR.1 goods to EU countries. ”
As the department reminds, from January 1, 2016, the customs authorities of the SFS issue a certificate of form EUR.1 free of charge for each shipment of goods when exporting goods from Ukraine to EU countries. The EUR.1 certificate allows goods of Ukrainian origin after they are imported into the EU to use the terms of preferential trade - they are subject to exemptions for the payment of duty.
In order to support the export of Ukrainian goods and information support for subjects of foreign economic activity, the SFS official website contains an interactive map of Ukraine with locations for issuing certificates for transporting goods EUR.1 and a list of SFS customs departments with their placement addresses that are authorized to issue certificates.
"At the same time, there are cases when the presence of a certificate of the EUR.1 form for obtaining preferential access to the EU market is not required, namely: the exporter has the status of authorized (approved); the total invoice value of the consignment does not exceed 6 thousand euros - in this case the exporter declares the origin of goods from Ukraine in the invoice declaration; in EU countries, goods are taxed at a zero rate of import duty (with the exception of the provisions of the Rules of Origin regarding cumulation and quotas) - added to the SFS.
Consequently, to simplify and speed up customs clearance of goods that are exported from Ukraine to the EU, Ukraine has introduced the European model of an “authorized” exporter, which has the ability to independently declare the preferential origin of the goods in commercial documents without issuing a certificate for transporting goods EUR.1.
As of February 1, 2019, 231 enterprises received the status of authorized exporter, which export their products to EU countries on simplified conditions.
