iPad Adds 5% of Customs Duties to its Price


Pads fitted out with GPS modules, among them Apple iPad2 Wi-Fi + 3G and Samsung Galaxy Tab, are regarded by the Federal Customs Service as navigators when imported into Russia. This makes them a subject of custom duties as much as 5 %, reports The Kommersant.

The goods classification was changed in August and September 2011, so the retail prices have already included the customs duty.

The sales of Samsung Galaxy Tab was started on 25 August, iPad2 on 27 May.

Russian authorities support the Russian global satellite navigation system Glonass. In July 2011 the Government claimed, Russia may introduce custom duties for gadgets, which don’t support Glonass, from January 1, 2012. iPhone 4S is known to support Glonass according to its specifications.
