Features of car customs clearance

Cars from the USA

  • Buying a car in the USA is a really great way to get a quality car at a bargain price.
  • When customs clearance of such a car, it is worth considering that a number of payments on the “American side” (the cost of the auction fee, the cost of a freight forwarder abroad, loading a car on a ship, the cost of transportation by ship, etc.) are included in the customs value of the car.
  • This means that the tax will be calculated taking into account all these payments. That is why it is important to choose a reliable customs broker with its own representative office in the USA in order to get the best prices both in the USA and Ukraine.

Cars from Europe

  • A car from Europe is also a good way to make a profitable purchase.
  • In this case, the financial burden on logistics and other costs is less, but the cost of a similar car will be higher than in the United States.
  • An important point: when driving a car from the EU (European Union) on your own, you must draw up an export declaration in the exporting country and a preliminary declaration for crossing the state border of Ukraine. Otherwise, it will be necessary to issue a security deposit.
  • We will be happy to help you with the preparation of these documents.

How to calculate the cost of a car customs clearance?

The customs value or customs clearance of the car depends on the following parameters (also do not forget that you need to add the costs that were for the delivery of the car to the border):

  • vehicle type (passenger car, truck, electric car or hybrid car);
  • the cost of the vehicle;
  • volume and type of engine (gasoline, or diesel, or battery capacity);
  • year of car production.

According to the new laws 8487/8488, it is most profitable to buy used cars no older than 2-6 years. The following coordinate system:

  • The volume of the engine affects the cost of customs duties in proportion to the displacement – the smaller the volume of the engine, as a result, the cheaper it is.
  • The older the vehicle is, the more expensive it will cost to clear customs.

How are electric vehicles or hybrids cleared?

Electric vehicles – the most loyal conditions for import until 2022 are for electric vehicles, both American and European.

Payments are as follows:

  • excise duty is charged 1 euro for each 1 kW of battery;
  • duty 0%;
  • VAT – 0%;

Hybrids – the procedure for customs clearance is more complicated, you need to be ready to defend your payments, because there is a letter of law and a practice.

Payments are as follows:

  • excise duty – 100 euros/unit;
  • duty – 10%;
  • VAT – 20%;

In order for the duty to be 100 euros per piece, the car must have a certain design, where the internal combustion engine is not mechanically connected to the wheels, but performs only the function of an electric generator – then customs clearance will take place just like this. There are a number of BMWi3 and VOLT cars and other models where controversial issues arise. We emphasize: practice and the letter of the law are different stories.

What else is worth knowing about car customs clearance?

Defending the real value of the car

There are often situations when the customs authorities believe that the real price of the car ishigher than the one indicated in your declaration, and you are obliged to pay all payments with a larger amount.

This is a very unpleasant situation that entails additional financial costs.

VR-GROUP CUSTOMS LOGISTICS has vast experience in resolving such disputes and ways to prove the real value of your car to the customs service.

We can provide car repairs at the stations of our partners.

Where, by the time the car arrives at the service station, they will already know about all the damage, necessary work and required spare parts.

Can a car be cleared at the border at the checkpoint?

Yes, it can be.

Please note that in this case you must have cash with you, because there are no terminals at the cash desks at the border, and so you don’t run there and waste your time looking for ATMs to withdraw cash.

But this can only be done with trusted companies or people, because experience and practice show that unexpected surprises can occur.

We recommend that you ask questions in advance and prepare in advance for customs clearance of a car or other vehicle.

Why did my friend overpay for a car at customs?

A rhetorical question. The overpayment or normal payment factor has a reason or the correct answer for sure.

You need to familiarize yourself with his documents, which he submitted to customs, but we can talk about classic situations when customs raises the cost:

First, American cars are much easier to clear through customs than European ones.

Secondly, mainly on American cars, they can raise the customs value, provided that during the check it is determined that not a real invoice was issued, but for example, understated by 30-50% at best. Here lies the answer, why American cars are easier to determine the cost, there are a lot of resources on the Internet where it will be seen how much you purchased this car – therefore, work with professionals and trusted companies not only when everything is fine, since overpayments can be more 100 000 UAH.

How to clear a car through customs?

How much does a customs broker cost to clear a car?

Each customs broker has a completely different price from 100 – 500 USD at the NBU rate and higher for customs clearance of a car, but remember that saving on customs brokerage services can lead to even greater overpayments during customs clearance of a car. Therefore, pay attention not only to advertising, but also to the recommendations and reputation of a customs broker, both in life and on the Internet.
