The Russian Federation government decided to reduce the export duty on sunflower seeds. The innovation concerns the deliveries which will be exported outside the member countries of the Customs Union. The corresponding decree was published on the official legal information portal and applies to legal relations arising as from 1st September 2016.
Thus, as from September of this year, the rates will be 6.5% of the customs value of goods, but not less than 9.75 euros per tonne. Previously, the rate was 9.88% of the value of goods. The reduction of the export duties applies to crushed and uncrushed sunflower seeds as well as sowing, and others.
The customs broker and logistics operator TRANSLOGIX provides all the necessary range of services of customs clearance of seeds (plants) in both import and export traffic.
