Russia considers lowering VAT and duty exemption on imported goods

30 April 2018

The Russian Ministry of Finance has proposed significantly lowering its import VAT and duty exemption threshold for goods imported into the country (“low value consignment relief”).

Currently foreign suppliers can use this relief to import goods with a value under €1,000 VAT and custom duty free.  However, if introduced the threshold will be reduced to €500 from 1 July 2018, with a further reduction to €200 on 1 January 2019.
