In Russia, they may introduce a mandatory payment for purchases in foreign online stores

In Russia, they may introduce a mandatory payment for purchases in foreign online stores For purchases in foreign online stores, Russians, quite possibly, will soon have to pay deductions to the state treasury. Amendments to the Law \currently in force, allow you to receive parcels weighing less than 31 kg duty free if the amount of purchases per month has not exceeded 1000 euros. For purchases in excess of this amount, a duty of 30% applies, but not less than € 4 per 1 kg. Starting from 2019, the threshold of the purchase price will be reduced to 500, and from 2020 to 200 euros. Under the new law, if it passes the second reading without changes, the buyer will have to pay an additional mandatory payment from any purchase. So far, the size of the forced payment is unknown. However, earlier the deputy head of the FCS Timur Maksimov shared his opinion with Interfax on the duty of 20% of the cost of goods purchased abroad. Such an indicator is exactly equal to VAT. How will the mandatory payment mechanism be implemented is not yet reported., Kommersant.ru
