Goods imported to Russia can be tracked. For this, the country proposes to create a national traceability system. The deputies plan to consider the corresponding bill at one of the next plenary sessions of the State Duma.

The development of the system was carried out to implement the Agreement on the mechanism of traceability of goods imported into the customs territory of the EAEU, concluded in Nur-Sultan in May last year. The authors of the document propose to amend the Tax Code of the Russian Federation. They will establish general provisions on the traceability of goods, as well as the obligations and measures of responsibility of taxpayers performing transactions with them.

The government of the Russian Federation will be empowered to approve the list of goods subject to traceability, as well as establish a list of entities participating in the organization and functioning of the national system. The very same traceability will be carried out on a documentary basis without applying control and identification marks to the goods. It will be assigned a batch registration number (RTPN). For imported products, the RNPT will be formed from the data specified in the declaration for goods, it is noted in the explanatory note to the bill.

In relation to goods imported from the EAEU countries, as well as goods previously imported from the territory of foreign states and located in Russia, the formation of the RNPT by the tax authorities is provided within one day from the receipt of the relevant document. When goods are sold, the RNPT is included by the taxpayer in the invoice (for value added tax payers) or the document on the shipment of goods (for persons who are not VAT payers), drawn up in electronic form.

According to the bill, traceability ceases when goods are excluded from the list and in some other cases. For example, when selling them to individuals for purposes not related to the implementation of entrepreneurial activities. However, control will be resumed if the goods return to trade, the Cabinet said.

Information about the end of traceability due to the reasons for the disposal of goods, their processing or sale to individuals who are not individual entrepreneurs, taxpayers must include in a specialized quarterly report submitted to the tax authority. Note that the launch of this system will take place before the entry into force of the Agreement. Such measures are necessary to validate control functions.
