Purchases through the Internet impose a duty
Purchases via the Internet from abroad can be levy. The Council of the Eurasian economic Commission (EEC) will consider new rules for the regulation of cross-border e-Commerce, for example we will focus on collecting on all parcels in consequence of the psychological barrier of Б?? 22 more expensive and heavier than 1 kg..
As informs the newspaper "Kommersant", the working group has produced 2 of the project. 1 proposes to exempt from customs duties goods cheaper than 22 Euro and weighing less than 1 kg. Parcels that fall within the range 22-150 euros and 1-10 lbs., will require payment of the fee of EUR 15. Products exceeding these specifications will require payment of the fee in the amount of 15 euros plus 30% of the customs price, but a minimum of 4 euros per kg. of body weight.
According to the second draft, the products from the customs price of 150 Euro and weighing less than 10 kg will be charged 10 euros. Once the customs value of parcels would exceed 150 euros and a weight of 10 kg, the fee will be 10 euros plus 30% of the customs value, but not less than 4 euros per kg. of body weight.

Remember that in the spring of 2014 a law was passed that allows the government to quickly change the norms of free entry to the Russian Federation of products ordered in the online stores. At the moment of payment of customs payments shall be released shipping by post, if the aggregate price of products delivered during the month, does not exceed thousand euros, and the total weight in a month does not exceed 31 kg. In excess of these thresholds will be charged a fee of 30% of the customs prices of products.
