Internal taxation of imports

On 28 November 2009, the Russian Government amended the List, originally introduced in 2000 and published in the new edition in April 2009, of equipment and technologies that are not produced in Russia. The goods from the list can be imported free of value-added tax collected at the border. 

Among other changes, the 28 November amendments introduced VAT-free imports of the following equipment (preceded by the Russian customs tariff code): 

  • "8438 80 990 0 -  Baking yeast production line"
  • "8439 20 000 9 - Roofing cardboard production line fibrous cellulosic materials"
  • "8455 22 000 2 - Five-stand mill for continuous cold rolling, combined with pickling"
  • "8479 81 000 0 - Hot dip galvanizing unit"
  • "8479 89 970 9 - Automatic line for the production of wheelsets"

According to the Russian Federal Customs, the changes to the List enter into force on 12 December 2009.
