International trade is a quite dynamic process that is constantly changing due to amendments made into legal and regulatory framework of the customs authorities. Changes introduced into the customs affairs are primarily caused by the urge of the customs authorities to shift the “game rules” with a view to increase the collection of customs duties. Requirements of the customs authorities are often of the illegal nature but participants of the international business activities are forced to obey since it directly influences the release of the goods. Engaging of VEDEXPERT’s lawyers at any stage of a dispute settlement with the customs authorities will contribute to rectification of justice.
