For legal entities introduced a customs duty of 750-1000 rubles for the export of inexpensive parcels

    According to the Kommersant newspaper, from March 27, 2015, a customs duty was introduced for small-scale export of parcels or letters worth from 0 to 200 euros. This innovation will affect only legal entities that use the services of express operators for forwarding. It will not affect the “Russian Post”.

    For each shipment executed in electronic form, the fee will be 750 rubles, and for a shipment executed on paper - 1,000 rubles.

    “Courier companies now export 400-500 parcels from the Russian Federation on a single register daily. Then they are loaded on regular evening flights and sent as intended. Now we’ll have to fill out a separate receipt order for each shipment, this will seriously slow down the process at customs and complicate the regular sending of goods by flights, ”Vladimir Sarkisov, president of the Express Carriers Association, explained to Kommersant newspaper.

    “This measure of the FCS poses a real threat to the work of the express transportation industry as a whole,” said Yury Kelebeev, Pony Express operations director.

    The introduction of a new customs duty was initiated by the deputy head of the FCS Tatyana Golendeeva on March 25.

    Meanwhile, on Tuesday, March 24, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov made proposals by the president on liberalizing foreign trade and simplifying the procedure for exporting civilian goods.

    Also on March 25, a round table was held with German Klimenko and Dmitry Strashnov, General Director of FSUE Russian Post, where Klimenko proposed the creation of “Russian Amazon.”

    However, the current situation may affect Russian online stores that sell goods for export. For example, the bookstore sends 1% of books to foreign buyers.

    March 26, it turned out that Strashnov became interested in the proposal Klimenko. And, since the new fees do not apply to exports through the Russian Post, the Russian online store, which will receive the support of the Post, will be in more favorable conditions than competitors.
