Entry of costs subject to VAT in the import customs declarations system Impulss

19.07.2022

As of 21 July 2022, the entry of costs subject to VAT in the import customs declarations system Impulss will change.

According to § 13 of the VAT Act, costs subject to VAT are costs incurred in the territory of the EU relating to the transport of goods to their destination, including commission, packing, transport and insurance costs not included in the customs value and the costs of ancillary services in connection with the transport of goods up to the first place of destination in the territory of Estonia and the costs of transporting the goods to another destination in the Community, if that place is known at the time of import.

Entry of costs subject to VAT

At the moment From 21.07.2022
Costs are entered either in the “Method of dividing and VAT costs” table located under the “General” tab or in the “Costs subject to VAT” table located under the “Goods” tab.

Costs are entered in the “Additions and deductions, costs subject to VAT” table located either under the “General” or the “Goods” tab.

  • Select from data field “Code” (1404008000) the additions code “CA - Other costs subject to VAT, including commission, packing, transport and insurance costs not included in the customs value until the first destination in the territory of Estonia”;
  • enter the amount and currency of the costs.

With the update, the declaration of costs subject to VAT will become more convenient and similar to declaring the additions to and deductions from customs value. For example, from 21 July 2022, the system will automatically divide general costs between all goods declared, even if commodity-specific costs are indicated for some goods.
