Utilisation fees will be cancelled for temporarily imported cars


 

RG.ru.- The members of the State Duma have passed a bill on the abolition of utilisation fees for vehicles imported to Russia on a temporary basis, on second and third readings, on Wednesday the 1st of April.

The authors of the initiative are of the opinion that the utilisation fee on temporarily imported vehicles is an unjustified payment, which needs to be rectified within the framework of a legal regulation.

The decision has been welcomed by the market. Temporary imports include the imports of automobiles for exhibitions, presentations, conductions of tests or as transit to third countries. In other words, the automobiles not registered within the territory of the Russian Federation, as explained by experts.

In the summer of 2019, the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation recognised the provision of the law “On Production and Consumption Wastes” and came to the conclusion that the payment of the utilisation fee was not consistent with the Constitution. A new bill has been developed to implement the relevant resolution of the Constitutional Court.
