Reading time: 3 min.

In the process of planning or conducting one's own business, which is accompanied by the use of excise goods, it is worth understanding that without appropriate registration, such activity cannot be characterized as legal. Such activities are recorded by the control bodies at the place of business. In the presence of any violations, such actions can be considered according to Article 204 of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. If you are at risk of liability under this article, you should use the help of lawyers from our Prykhodko and Partners law office.

 

Normative basis of the question

Let's start with the fact that the sale of excisable goods means any actions related to the conduct of economic or civil legal activities. A product that is subject to taxation is called excisable. Excise duty is an indirect tax that is a component of the cost of goods. Among such products: alcohol, tobacco products, fuel, cars, electricity.

The following are part of the crime under this article:

  • Illegal storage/purchase or transportation of the above goods.
  • Illegal manufacture of alcoholic or tobacco products.
  • Illegal production of the above products, which led to the deterioration of health or death of a person.

Illegal manufacture, storage, sale or transportation for the purpose of sale of excise goods

Liability provided for in Article 204 of the Criminal Code

The degree of punishment under Article 204 of the Criminal Code depends on what illegal actions were committed:

  • Deprivation of liberty from 3 to 5 years with confiscation/destruction of illegally manufactured or purchased products - illegal production of taxable products.
  • Fines - up to 10,000 NMDH. This penalty is imposed for the illegal purchase/storage of excise goods.
  • Deprivation of liberty for a period of 8 to 10 years - illegal production of excise goods, the consumption of which led to harm to a person's health or to his death.

Liability under Article 204 of the Criminal Code applies to persons who conduct business activities without going through the registration procedure or work without a license.

The subject of the offense is a person who has reached the age of 16 at the time of the commission of the crime.

The subjective aspect of criminal acts under Article 204 of the Criminal Code is the presence of a direct intention to carry out the illegal sale of excise goods.
