173,000 cars with foreign registration were imported to Ukraine in the 'transit' regime and 53,100 – in the 'temporary importation' regime since the beginning of 2018 as of November 11, 2018, as the press office of State Fiscal Service reported.
It was informed that 122,200 cars with foreign registration in 'transit' regime stay in Ukraine longer than provided, which is a violation. No statistics on 'temporary importation' regime was made, as the period of stay of these cars is not over yet.
As it was reported, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the draft law #8487, which imposes a new principle of calculation of the rate of the excise tax for the import of the cars from abroad in the second reading.
A tax rate for the car equipped only with the electric engine is established in the sum of one Euro for one kiloWatt per hour of the capacity of the electric accumulator of such vehicle. The tax rate for the transport, which is induced only by the electric engine, one or a few, is established in the sum of 100 Euros per item.
At transitional provisions, a grace period is provided: three months from the moment this law comes into force. It will be possible to clear a car, paying the half of the rate of excise tax. Such rules concern only the cases when one person imports one car for personal use to Ukraine.
According to the draft law, the import and sale of bodies of the cars in Ukraine are exempted from taxation if the passengers' cars will be made from them.
The law will come into force the next day after its official publishing but not earlier than the law on the fines for the non-clearance of the cars comes into force.
The Cabinet of Minister is ordered to register an offer on the sending of money from the clearance of the cars imported to Ukraine from 2015 to the pension provision.
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, - six months 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.
