Overview of the legislation of the Republic of Belarus

On the registration in the system of registered exporters

Edict of the President of the Republic of Belarus No. 236 of June 23, 2020

In accordance with this act, the BelCCI is granted the right to register, change data, and revoke registration in the REX system. As a result of its implementation, the exporter will receive a unique registration number by which it will be possible to check the validity of the registration, the date of its receipt and other information subject to the exporter's permission.

The REX system has its advantages for Belarusian companies:

1. It is not necessary every time before sending goods to apply for confirmation of the origin of the exported goods at the BelCCI (A-form certificate). It is enough that information about the country of origin of the goods will be indicated in commercial documents (for example, in an invoice).

2. There are tariff preferences for the import of goods of Belarusian origin into the territory of Norway and Switzerland. The current system of preferences provides for a reduction in import customs duties by 10–100% of the base tariff for a number of Belarusian goods.

On the change of the Edict of the President of the Republic of Belarus

Edict of the President of the Republic of Belarus No. 182 of June 1, 2020 (the act will come into force on October 4, 2020 года)

In accordance with the Edict, the procedure for declaring goods for which customs operations are not performed has been simplified. In particular, it provides for the submission of a statistical declaration once a month on one or more facts of shipments (deliveries) of goods under a foreign trade agreement, if the total value is an amount equivalent to 3 thousand EUR or more.

The rule on conducting periodic statistical declarations is excluded. That is, instead of two documents (statistical and periodic statistical declaration), one will be presented - a statistical declaration.
