MOSCOW, August 31 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian government has approved the regulations introducing wheeled vehicle scrapping fees beginning September 1, the government press service said on Friday.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has signed the corresponding resolution, which takes effect on September 1.
The regulations stipulate that excessive or mistakenly paid taxes will be returned.
The scrapping tax will not be paid for vehicles delivered to Russia from the other Customs Union states.
The taxes will be collected by the Federal Customs Service.
The "scrapping fee" will be paid for new and used vehicles of all categories. It will be paid by importers and individuals who bring foreign autos from abroad.
Domestic automakers will not pay it, but they must present their guarantees to the Industry and Trade Ministry for safe recovery.
The rates are set according to the period of the use, the weight and other characteristics.
The customs authorities will give a vehicle passport only after the payment. The tax may be paid when passing through the customs or in any bank later.
