The recycling charge, previously levied only for wheeled vehicles (chassis), was extended to self-propelled vehicles and their trailers at the end of December 2015 under federal law. According to the new rules, recycling charge should now be paid not only for each wheeled vehicle (chassis), but also for self-propelled vehicles and their trailers. So now, all equipment imported into Russia or manufactured in Russia will be subject to recycling charge.
The government decree, which entered into force on February 09, 2016, set out the rules for calculation, collection and payment of recycling charge for self-propelled vehicles and their trailers, as well as a list of types and categories of vehicles and trailers.
As for wheeled vehicles (chassis), the recycling charge is calculated by multiplying the basic rate and the rate provided for a specific item. The stamp affixed in self-propelled vehicle certificates upon payment of recycling charge serves as proof of payment.
