Limitations on the number and cost of parcels from abroad will come into force in 2019, the law

Restrictions on tax-free to the Ukrainians of parcels from abroad will take effect from 2019. This is stated in the transitional provisions of the law on amendments to the Tax code of Ukraine, published on December 30 in the Parliament newspaper “Golos Ukrainy”.

Recall, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the law “On amendments to the Tax code of Ukraine concerning balancing of budget revenues in 2018,” December 8, 2017. December 30, the law was signed by President Petro Poroshenko.

In accordance with the provisions of the new law, every Ukrainian will be able to obtain without payment of additional fee of not more than three parcels a month, and the cost of each should not exceed 150 euros. Beginning with the fourth sending such shipments will be subject to tax, duty and excise.

The fee will be 20% of the cost of the goods. The leaders of some of the postal services said that decisions taken by the Rada to restrict the import of goods and parcels from abroad are controversial and may not yield results.

The limit value of the parcel is 150 euros, but the number of packages is not limited.
