The State Fiscal Service of Ukraine in January 2019 issued 9,707 EUR.1 movement certificates that allow goods of Ukrainian origin benefiting from favorable trade terms under a preferential trade policy of the EU, the authority has reported on its website.
The authority said that in general, during the 2016-2018 years, customs officers issued 219,000 certificates.
“As of February 1, 2019, the status of an authorized exporter has been granted to 231 enterprises, which export their products to EU countries on preferential terms,” the State Fiscal Service said.
The authority reminded that in order to be granted with the preferential access to the EU market as part of a free trade area between Ukraine and the EU, a company must confirm the origin of goods from Ukraine and receive the EUR.1 movement certificate.
The State Fiscal Service has been issuing these documents since 2016 free of charge for each consignment of goods when exported to the EU. At the same time, the status of an authorized exporter lifts the requirement to receive the certificate, the authority said.
In addition, the requirement for having the EUR.1 movement certificate does not apply to goods with a total invoice value no higher than EUR 6,000, and also, if these are goods to which the EU applies a zero import duty rate.
