Two-million scam turned into a report on violation of customs rules for the manager of a Danish company

Transcarpathian customs officers found forged documents for imported goods, the price of which was understated by UAH 1,950,035.75.
Two weeks ago, the driver of a Mukachevo company arrived at the customs post "Tisa" of the Transcarpathian customs in a truck DAF with a semi-trailer KRONE. He submitted for the customs control accompanying documents, according to which "industrial equipment - heat exchangers in a partially disassembled state" were moved across the customs border of Ukraine. The total value of the goods was EUR 391,405.00, which according to the NBU exchange rate was UAH 13 million.
The consignor and the seller of the goods was a foreign enterprise, and the consignee and the buyer was a Ukrainian enterprise in Odesa.
During the customs controls, they found in the truck driver's file, among other documents, export declarations of customs authorities in Italy according to which the goods exported from the territory of the European Union cost EUR 450,000.00, which according to the NBU rate amounted to almost UAH 15 million - the deputy head of the customs offense department of the Transcarpathian customs Victoria Helle said.
The above became the grounds for sending customs inquiries to foreign companies to establish the authenticity of documents.
As a result of the measures taken and a detailed analysis of the received documents, the customs officers found out that the goods exported from the European Union cost UAH 1,950,035.75 more than the price stated in the invoice submitted for the customs control at the customs post "Tisa" of the Transcarpathian customs.
Thus, the documents contained false information, in particular, regarding the cost of the goods as well as their consignor.
It is established that the project manager of a Danish company took actions aimed at moving goods across the customs border of Ukraine concealed from customs control by submitting to the customs authority documents containing false information about the consignor and cost of the goods. A report was drawn up against her under Part 1 of Article 483 of the Customs Code of Ukraine, which provides for a fine of 100% of the value of the goods and their confiscation.
