Increasing the Limit on Duty-Free Parcel Delivery from Abroad

Tax-free for individuals, the cost of parcels imported into the customs territory of Ukraine has been increased to €150 

In Ukraine, from July 1, 2019, the tax-free limit for postal parcels has been reduced from €150  to €100. Thus, the norm that was in effect 3 years ago has been returned.

How do we pay now

  • Value added tax (20%) will be levied only on the part of the value that exceeds the limit. For example, if the goods in the parcel cost €160, VAT is paid only on €10;
  • It will be possible to pay VAT within 30 days from the date of registration of the temporary register with the simultaneous submission of an additional register.

Responsible for the calculation and payment of VAT, if the goods come to Ukraine through postal services, will be the postal operators themselves.

At the same time, the rules for personal importation remain unchanged: the total value of imported goods up to €500  (up to a thousand euros at airports) is not taxed. But this opportunity is provided only once every three days.
