In our practice, we encountered different obstacles to imported goods crossing the Ukrainian border. In particular, we represented clients in disputes with customs authorities in cases of canceling customs decisions on adjusting the customs value of goods, as well as in cases of violation of customs rules, in which our clients were threatened with confiscation of goods and fines imposed on declarants in the amount of the value of goods which price was tens of thousands of euros. The relevant court practice and our findings on the possibility of protecting the interests of importers and exporters in Ukraine are given below.
Our client on a regular basis used chemicals that are not produced in Ukraine in his production, and therefore had to import them. Chemicals were bought on international markets, and information on their value was publicly available. Some of the chemicals were unique and were produced by a single foreign manufacturer. Therefore, there was no alternative cost.
