5/3/18

Today, on May 3, 2018, the transition period is expiring for the voluntary use of the “one-stop” system at new customs clearance points.

As previously reported, the new information exchange system based on the “one-stop” principle was launched at the customs offices in Ukraine on February 1, 2018. Among other innovations, a differentiated approach was implemented for the mandatory use of the “one-stop” procedure depending on the specifics of transport operations.

Also, a transition period (90 days) was granted for the voluntary use of the “one-stop” procedure at each new customs clearance point where this system was launched.

The Ministry of Finance permanently monitors the operation of the “one-stop” system at the customs offices. According to the results of this monitoring, more than 80% of companies already use this system. As per April 30, 2018, the share of customs declarations issued under the “one-stop” procedure was as follows: import – 79.4%, export – 87.4%, transit - 19%. At the same time, 4.5% and approx. 0.6% of companies use the “one-stop” procedure with printed documents for import and export/transit respectively.

Yuri Draganchuk, advisor to the Minister of Finance, pointed out that the “one-stop” procedure is an important anti-corruption steps in the customs reform which minimizes the human factor and reduces possibilities for arbitrary interventions during customs clearance.
