Overview

Kazakhstan’s international trade relations have been growing steadily, with an important factor in that growth being the country’s membership of the Eurasian Economic Union with Belarus, Russia and Armenia.

Generally speaking, international trade development, including integration within the Common Economic Area and Eurasian Economic Union, provides companies with new business opportunities and means they are continuously required to make coordinated decisions on customs regulation. In practice, the main challenges for businesses are understanding and being able to apply new customs legislation provisions and complying with them.

Businesses always need to be aware of recent amendments to customs legislation and ensure they keep up with any changes as part of their successful operating within the framework of foreign economic activities. By doing so, they minimise any risks related to the payment of customs duties and taxes.

Our customs experts ready to help you in any customs regulation issues according to both Kazakhstan and Eurasian Economic Union customs legislation. We will help you to understand the issues  related to customs value and customs payments and taxes, the application of various customs procedures and non-tariff regulation measures, in matters of intellectual property, and other customs issues.

Keep up to date with the latest changes and trends in Kazakhstan customs law here.

Our customs-related services

The Customs Service of Kazakhstan, as a legitimate representative of the Kazakh government, implements the country’s customs policy, as part of the domestic and foreign policy of Kazakhstan, in accordance with the tasks assigned to it. The methods by which the customs policy is implemented affect the interests of a wide range of businesses engaged in the import and export of goods. Among these methods are the legal rules and regulations that directly and unambiguously control the actions of all parties involved in implementing the customs policy: on one hand, the customs authorities, and on the other the participants with foreign economic activities.

Under the established regime, observance of all formalities related to the customs legislation is key to carrying out successful foreign economic activity in Kazakhstan.
