The cost of customs clearance of cars from the EU in 2024 has not changed. The duty on a car is 10% of its declared value. For electric cars, the duty is 0%. VAT is 20% of the sum of the car's value, duty, and excise tax.

The excise tax is now calculated according to a formula, according to the State Customs Service. It is as follows:

  • (Rate)* (Engine capacity in cm3/1000)* (Number of full years of the car)

The rate depends on the type of engine. For gasoline engines it is 50 euros, for diesel engines - 75 euros. For example, if a 10-year-old car with a 1500 cc gasoline engine costs 5 thousand euros, its cost with customs clearance will be 7230 euros. Thus, the import duty is 275 euros, the excise duty is 750 euros, and VAT is 1205 euros. The same diesel car will cost €7,680 (excise duty will increase to €1,125 and VAT to €1,280).

The average age of imported cars has increased to 12.3 years, as people are buying cars worth $1-2 thousand more often. According to the Institute for Automotive Market Research, most cars are imported to Ukraine from the US and EU countries.

Car customs clearance rules are to be changed

The new customs clearance rules are set out in draft law No. 10380. On February 1, it was supported by the Verkhovna Rada Committee on Finance, Taxation, and Customs Policy, according to committee chairman Danylo Hetmantsev (Servant of the People). But so far, it is only a draft.

It is expected that as a result, Ukrainians will be able to submit electronic customs declarations through the Diia app, and businesses will be able to submit them through the Diia web portal. At the same time, according to Hetmantsev, the new model will eliminate schemes:

  • Indication of non-existent damages and malfunctions of a passenger car;
  • changes in the modification of a passenger car;
  • Forgery of contracts for the sale and purchase of a passenger car (purchase orders, invoices);
  • change of odometer readings (artificial increase or decrease of car mileage).

As OBOZ.UA reported earlier, a number of administrative services provided by the Ministry of Internal Affairs service centers have risen in price in Ukraine. For example, issuance of a driver's license now costs UAH 230 (excluding the commission of the bank or payment system through which the payment will be made), while previously it was UAH 26.
