Export tax

On December 7, 2012, the President of the Republic of Belarus, Mr Lukashenko, approved Presidential Decree 548 concerning the export duties on potash fertilisers (HS 3104). The decree amends Presidential Decree 525 of October 26, 2009 by introducing two differentiated export duties on potash fertilisers, as follows:
1.75 euro per 1,000 kg for exports to countries with which Belarus has signed FTAs.
2.85 euro per 1,000 kg for exports to other countries.
Decree 548 enters into force on December 11, 2012.

Previously (since 2009), Belarus applied a unified export duty on potash fertilisers of 50 euro per 1,000 kg.
