A Ukrainian presented customs officials forged documents trying to understate the customs value of a Mercedes

Recently, our fellow delivered to the territory of Ukraine through the checkpoint "Halmeu - Dyakove" of the Transcarpathian customs office a road tractor "Mercedes Actros1835" released in 2007.

For the customs control and clearance, the citizen of Ukraine filed a customs declaration, invoice, power of attorney and registration documents for the vehicle.

While checking the papers, customs officials found out discrepancies in information. In the customs declaration, the vehicle price was stated as 6,100 euros, and in the invoice - 6,440 euros.

Customs officers sent a request to Cluj regional customs office. They requested copies of documents (export declaration, invoice, CMR), based on which the customs authorities of Romania let the road tractor from the European Union to Ukraine.

According to copies of the documents provided by the customs authorities of Romania, the consignor of the tractor was a Romanian company, the recipient was also different from the one that was specified in the documents submitted to Ukrainian customs officials, and the price of the vehicle was 15,000 euros.

Thus, the citizen of Ukraine presented the customs authority the documents containing false information about the consignor and / or recipient of the vehicle, false information to determine its customs value.

These actions contain signs of violation of customs regulations under part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine.

Currently, the vehicle is seized.
