Submission model for the customs clearance procedure for the import of foreign press books sent by post

As of January 1 , 2022, pursuant to article 287 of the general tax code (CGI) and article 1695 of the CGI , taxable persons and persons identified with value added tax (VAT) have the obligation to declare and pay the amounts of VAT for which they are liable on importation to the services of the general directorate of public finances. Consequently, the commitment in terms of VAT with the customs services, made within the framework of the subscription procedure for customs clearance on the importation of foreign press works sent by post, becomes irrelevant.
