Article 66. Method of value of transaction with the imported goods (method 1)

      1. The customs value of imported goods shall be the value of transaction with them, that is, the price actually paid or payable for these goods upon their sale for export to the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union and supplemented in accordance with Article 67 of this Code, provided that the following conditions are met:

      1) there are no restrictions on the rights of the buyer to use and dispose the goods, except for the restrictions that:

      limit the geographic region in which the goods can be resold;

      substantially do not affect the value of goods;

      are established by acts of the bodies of the Eurasian Economic Union or by the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan;

      2) the sale of goods or their price does not depend on any conditions or obligations whose effect on the price of goods cannot be quantified;

      3) no part of the income or proceeds from the subsequent sale, disposal or use of the goods by the buyer is directly or indirectly due to the seller, except in cases where additional accruals may be made in accordance with Article 67 of this Code;

      4) the buyer and the seller are not interrelated persons or the buyer and seller are interrelated persons in such a way that the value of transaction with imported goods is acceptable for customs purposes in accordance with paragraph 4 of this article.

      2. In the event that at least one of the conditions specified in paragraph 1 of this article is not met, the price actually paid or payable is not acceptable for determining the customs value of imported goods and the method of the value of transaction with imported goods (method 1) shall not apply.

      3. The price actually paid or payable for imported goods shall be the total amount of all payments for these goods carried out or to be performed by the buyer directly to the seller or other person in favor of the seller. At that, payments can be made directly or indirectly in any form not prohibited by the legislation of the Republic of Kazakhstan. In the event that the declared goods are part of a larger number of the same goods acquired under a single transaction, the price actually paid or payable for the declared goods shall be determined in the same proportion (proportion) in which the quantity of the declared goods and the total number of purchased goods are correlated.

      4. The fact of the relationship between the seller and the buyer should not in itself constitute grounds for recognizing the value of transaction as unacceptable for determining the customs value of imported goods. In this case, the circumstances accompanying the sale must be analyzed. If this relationship does not affect the price actually paid or payable, the value of transaction shall be recognized as acceptable for determining the customs value of imported goods.

      5. In the event that the seller and the buyer are the interrelated persons and at that on the basis of information provided by the declarant or received by the customs authority in another way, the customs authority will find the signs that the relationship between the seller and the buyer has affected the price actually paid or payable, the customs body in written or electronic form shall inform the declarant about these signs. In this case, the customs body shall conduct customs control, including an analysis of the circumstances accompanying the sale. The declarant shall have the right to prove the absence of the influence of the relationship between the seller and the buyer on the price actually paid or payable in one of the following ways:

      1) submission of additional documents and information (including those requested additionally by the customs authority), characterizing (reflecting) the circumstances accompanying the sale. In order to determine the effect of the relationship between the seller and the buyer on the price actually paid or payable, the customs authority, when analyzing the circumstances accompanying the sale, considers all the terms of transaction, including the manner in which the buyer and seller organize their commercial relations, and how the considered price was established. If, as a result of the analysis, the customs authority has established that the buyer and seller, being interrelated persons, mutually sell and buy goods on the same terms, including at comparable prices (that is, at the prices of the same level) as if they were not interrelated persons, this fact shall be the proof that the relationship between the seller and the buyer did not affect the price actually paid or payable;

      2) submission of documents and information confirming that the value of transaction with the imported goods is close to one of the following verification values taking place in the same or corresponding period of time when the goods are imported into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union:

      7. When the customs authority compares the verification values indicated in subparagraph 2) of paragraph 5 of this article, with the value of transaction with imported goods, the declarant's information shall be taken into account on differences in sales levels, in the number of goods, in additional charges specified in Article 67 of this Code, as well as the differences in costs that are usually borne by the seller in sales, when the seller and the buyer are not the interrelated persons, compared to the costs incurred by the seller in the course of the sales, when the buyer and seller are the interrelated persons.

      8. Verification values specified in subparagraph 2) of paragraph 5 of this article shall be used at the initiative of the declarant and solely for comparison purposes in accordance with paragraph 7 of this article and cannot be used as a basis for determining the customs value of imported goods.

      9. The price actually paid or payable for imported goods shall refer to goods transported across the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union, in connection with which the dividends paid by the buyer to the seller and other payments in case they are not related to the imported goods shall not be included in the customs value of imported goods.

      10. When importing information carriers (paper, electronic or other) into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union with the information contained therein, only the value of the carrier of this information shall be included in the customs value, except for cases when the subject of the transaction is the information contained on the said carriers.
