new customs tax code
« on: 16:15 02-Nov-2018 »
just received information from meest about this...


Dear user of MY.MEEST.US service!

Please be informed that on October 25, 2018, a closed meeting of the working group on processing changes to the Customs and Tax Codes of Ukraine took place in the premises of the Committees of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, the State Fiscal Service and postal operators and express carriers operating in Ukraine.

The subject of the meeting was the consideration of draft amendments to the Customs and Tax Codes of Ukraine, which, if adopted, would have negative consequences for the ordinary citizens of Ukraine:

All foreign parcels cost more than EUR 22 will be subject to VAT, which will automatically increase the cost of purchases in foreign online stores by at least 30%.
Departing from the workers / diaspora in Ukraine more expensive 22 euros will also be subject to VAT, so there may be a situation where a gift will need to pay VAT.

Anyone know if this has been adopted or there have been any changes in the way Meest operates?  I need to send some personal parcels of household goods (USA to Ukie land) this Spring and don't want to get caught up in paying VAT.  Never have any even been inspected to my knowledge.

Write or call Meest and find out straight from them. They will know. 

 Then please let us know for sure.

I have a shipment that just left Lviv sorting ctr today and is headed my way.  If the VAT was paid it was included in the payment I made a few days ago to send the package from Meest's hub in NJ.  I can't find an itemized payment record.

So if there's a VAT then its quite seamless or we'll have to fork over some UAH when the lad knocks on the door with my goodies.

Meest probably knows who to pay off to avoid the VAT.
