The Verkhovna Rada supported as the basis the draft amendment of the Tax Code #2288, which postpones the fines up to $7.000 for uncustomed cars with European license plates until the beginning 2020 as well as for the vehicle with exceeding term of transit. Until then, the fine is $356. 311 MPs voted for the decision as 112 Ukraine reported.

According to the bill, since August 22 until December 21, 2019, the fines in the sum of $7.000 are not applied for such violations such as delay of the customs clearance of commercial or personal vehicle with European license plates. At the same time, the delay of the customs clearance of other goods, excluding personal vehicles is also released from the larger fine. This norm was called ‘smuggling’ during the discussion.

If the vehicles (or other goods) were imported in Ukraine temporarily and was not exported in time – the increased fines will also begin to act since the beginning of 2020.

The fine in the sum of $356 will be applied.

On September 12, 2019, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine postponed the application of the fines for the owners of the cars with the European license place for 90 days.

On July 13, 2018, Verkhovna Rada supported a bill providing for increased responsibility for breaching the rules of car import to Ukraine. The document establishes a single term for sanctions for customs rules breach, - half a year since the day of detection of the violation.

On October 22, the Supreme Court of Ukraine recognized the termless use of the cars with the EU license plates imported in the regime of transit as legal. Later, the State Fiscal Service claimed that the use of the uncustomed cars is still a violation of the law.

In August 2019, Deputy Head of the President’s Office Ruslan Ryaboshapka stated that fines for owners of the vehicles with the European car plates are postponed for another three months.

The new fines were implemented for the violation of the import of the cars under customs regimes of the temporary importation and transit starting from August 22. However, the police officers do no fine the owners yet.
