What you need to know about customs clearance of a shipment in Ukraine

  • Parcel cost: up to €150

    There are no additional taxes for parcels containing gifts, goods or personal belongings

  • Parcel cost: over €150

    • 1
      Import duty: 10% of the excess of €150
    • 2
      VAT: 20% of the shipment cost (in excess of €150 + import duty)

Calculation example:

The item costs €200. Customs payments will be:

  • 1
    import duty = (€200 - €150) × 10 % = €5 
  • 2
    VAT = (€200 - €150 + €5) × 20% = €11

Total tax payable: €5 + €11 = €16

If the declared value of the shipment is more than €150, do not split it into two parcels to avoid paying customs fees. At customs in Ukraine, such shipments are grouped together and their declared value is added, so that customs duties are still payable.
