From October 1, Ukrainian companies will be able to ship goods directly from their warehouses to at least 35 countries that are party to the Convention on a Joint Transit Procedure.

This was reported to Ukrinform by the State Customs Service following the results of the seminar “Accession of Ukraine to the Agreement on the Joint Transit Procedure. Transition to the international application of NCTS in Ukraine”, which brought together approximately 1,500 business representatives.

“The Convention on the Joint Transit Procedure, the International Application of NCTS, is a new reality for Ukrainian business, starting on October 1. We started this workshop to focus on practical aspects of business importance. The interest in the seminar is unprecedented. We will continue communication so that companies do not have unanswered questions,” said Vladislav Suvorov, deputy chairman of the State Customs Service.

The Ministry recalled that when goods are exported outside the customs territory of Ukraine at the border with the EU, a transit declaration is issued and an entry summary declaration is lodged in advance (the Ukrainian general declaration of arrival is an analogue of such a European declaration). These declarations are often issued directly at the border crossing point. The costs of the relevant services are included in the price of the carriage of goods.

However, now companies have the option to file such returns in the country. Subject to obtaining transit simplifications in combination with the simplifications provided for in the Customs Code, Ukrainian companies will be able to ship goods directly from their warehouses to at least 35 countries participating in the Joint Customs Scheme Agreement.

In this way, companies save money and time at the border.

Since simplifications are available for free, all a company needs to obtain them is the desire and time to understand the regulatory framework and complete the appropriate application and self-assessment questionnaire.

As reported, the EU Program in Support of Public Finance Management in Ukraine (EU4PFM) has provided Ukrainian customs with more than 200 modern barcode readers for reading data on customs declarations. Scanners are already sent to checkpoints, where they are integrated into the customs IT system.

According to the Joint Transit Convention, which Ukraine adheres to, customs declarations must contain a barcode, which allows you to quickly find the declaration in the system. In fact, customs officers only need to scan the barcode on the declaration with a reader, which significantly speeds up the passage of all procedures.
