MOSCOW, January 01, 12:08 /ITAR-TASS/. From January 1, 2014 Russia’s utilisation duty becomes binding for all car manufacturers, in compliance with the order, which Russia’s President Vladimir Putin signed in October of the previous year. From now on, Russian car makers will pay the utilisation duty, too.
The utilisation duty will be payable for all Russian car makers, importers from third countries and from the Customs Union’s countries, which supply their products to the Russian market. The base for cars is 20,000 roubles, for trucks and buses - 150,000 roubles. The measure was introduced to adapt the Russian legislation to the requirements of the World Trade Organisation.
The utilisation duty from cars and trucks, produced in the territory of the Russian Federation or imported from other countries (except for the Customs Union countries), was payable from September 1, 2012. The base duty was 20,000 roubles.
