«An automated accounting system for accompanying invoices has been installed at all temporary posts, allowing online sending of information on imported goods from the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union to the territorial tax authorities,» the statement reads.
From October 1 to December 31, 2018, at least 36,101 accompanying documents have been drawn up and submitted at temporary posts of transport control and accounting of goods, which is a quarter more than in 2017.
The government noted that by October 1, 2018, certain legal entities and individuals imported goods through the checkpoints located on the Kyrgyz-Kazakh section of the state border and presented accompanying documents drawn up with a significant underestimation of the actual weight (quantity) indicators of the imported goods.
«Since the moment of work of temporary posts of transport control and accounting of goods, there is not only an increase in the number of drawn up and submitted accompanying documents, but also indication of a real weight (quantitative) indicator of imported goods,» the Cabinet stressed.
