Terms and conditions under which movement of goods between EU Member States are subject to customs (excise) duties

Measures regarding customs duties for intra-Community transfer of goods

Legislation (Law 4955/2022) incorporates into the Greek domestic law Directive (EU) 2060/262 and thus amends provisions of the Greek Customs Code (Law 2960/2001) to revise the terms and conditions under which the movement of goods between EU Member States are subject to customs (excise) duties.

It further reforms the legal framework governing the exercise of the profession of customs representative and the timeframe for the remittance of stamp duties.
