Russia approved the launch of a new wheat export tax from July 1, which traders say could threaten profits on advance contracts for the new crop if the ruble weakens in coming months.
Russia's government said on Friday that the new tax was intended to stop exports surging if the ruble drops steeply. The ruble fell sharply against the dollar in 2014, fueling grain exports, and is yet to fully recover.

BRUSSELS — At a technology fair in Moscow last month, European executives faced the new reality of doing business in Russia since the West imposed sanctions: The number of companies at the international showcase had shrunk by half from a year ago.

Russia has refused to allow almost a ton of German and U.S. tea into the country, with customs officials saying the produce violated Moscow's ban on Western food imports.
After 970 kilograms of German herbal tea was detained Friday in the Siberian region of Novosibirsk, officials said Monday that they had seized a smaller shipment of tea and ice-drink mixes on the far eastern island of Sakhalin, the Interfax news agency reported.
About 28 kilograms of tea produced by a U.S. company was part of the cargo aboard a ship arriving from the South Korean port of Busan, the Sakhalin region's customs service was quoted as saying by Interfax.

Even as Russia seeks to deepen and expand trade alliances in the face of economic isolation from the West, the unilateral trade restrictions that Moscow unleashed last week show just how far its Customs Union is from a genuine economic alliance, analysts said.
Russia last Thursday unilaterally banned deliveries of meat, poultry, fish, cheese, milk and dairy products from the European Union, the United States, Australia, Canada and Norway in retribution  for the countries' sanctions against Russia over its policy in Ukraine.


» Authorized Economic Operator: Recent Changes
5 августа 2014 | Просмотров: 635

Recent amendments to the Federal Law on Customs Regulation in Russia (as amended by Federal Law No. 115-FZ on Amendments to the Federal Law on Customs Regulation in the Russian Federation of May 5, 2014 with respect to the institution of authorized economic operator) (the "Law") have made the status of authorized economic operator (AEO) even more attractive for businesses.
The amendments affect both the conceptual framework and the practical aspects of the Law. The amendments can be regarded as largely positive.
An AEO is a legal entity incorporated under the law of a member state of the Customs Union that meets certain requirements and has been entered in a special register. Under the current legislation, a wide range of entities — from manufacturers, importers, exporters, customs brokers, customs carriers, intermediaries, distributors, to other persons involved in one way or another with foreign economic activities — are eligible for this favorable status. The amendments made to the law with respect to the concept of AEO unify the advantages that AEO status gives to manufacturers and other kinds of entity (retailers, service providers).

» B2B: Customs Compliance
9 июля 2014 | Просмотров: 533
Around 150 agreements and 900 decisions on various customs issues have been adopted since the inauguration of the Customs Union of Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. The legislative framework of the Customs Union (CU) comprises the CU Customs Code, federal laws of the CU member states dealing with customs matters, and regulatory legal acts of national legislative and executive authorities. At the same time, it should be noted that the judicial and enforcement practice is not entirely consistent. This has led to a significant increase in cases before the Court of the Eurasian Economic Community, which also contributes to the enforcement practice through its decisions.
