Customs chief denies taxing imported relief goods

MANILA (UPDATE) – Customs Commissioner Ruffy Biazon has denied that donated relief goods from abroad are being taxed by the Bureau of Customs, which allegedly caused delays in its distribution to typhoon-hit areas.

Posts in social media went viral on Wednesday asking the Customs bureau to investigate the alleged taxing of donations from Germany.

Biazon said the allegations are not true, and that the relief goods were released immediately and exempted from taxes.

“There's information going around social media that Customs allegedly taxed German donations that arrived via Lufthansa. This is not true. The shipment of German donations which arrived at the Lufthansa hangar via LH 9922 on Nov. 11, 2013 at 0434 AM from Republic of Germany carrying 23071 kilos of relief goods were released within the day, exempted from duties and tax,” Biazon said in a Facebook post.


Biazon said he also spoke with Lufthansa country manager Paul Schenk, who said they were "very pleased" with Customs' clearance.

According to Biazon, Schenk told him through a text message that Lufthansa head office has been directed to “correct social media rumors about BOC.”

Schenk’s text message to Biazon, which the Customs chief posted on his Twitter account, also read: “Your help and assistance is well appreciated.”

“It appears that BOC has been victimized by an irresponsible posting on social media alleging that Customs gave German donations a hard time,” Biazon said.

Biazon also earlier directed the BOC district collectors at the ports of Tacloban, Cebu and Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) to activate a “one stop shop” to speed up the processing and release of all donated relief goods from abroad.

“The typhoon victims in central Philippines have already suffered a lot. Many of them have lost their loved ones, homes, and for some, even their hopes. And to help them cope with the tragedy, the government is doing everything to get the much needed relief goods to them at the soonest possible time,” Biazon said.

Donations from foreign countries will not be taxed and will only require, among other documents, a letter of intent to donate goods, bill of Lading or airway bill, and a packing list and/or a commercial invoice for its immediate release.

The streamlined procedure was posted on the BOC website on Tuesday.

This is the Germans fault.

They should have said that the goods are for the a certain Senator then it will be tax free.

I know someone who imported a pickup truck, car and motorcycle tax free, guess who he sent it to?

Your guess is as good as mine.

Sorry boss. But you know that if they are guilty, they would never admit it.

If you read between the lines....

"Donations from foreign countries will not be taxed and will only require, among other documents, a letter of intent to donate goods, bill of Lading or airway bill, and a packing list and/or a commercial invoice for its immediate release."

What if they were in a hurry to come and distribute the goods and forgot to have that letter of intent?
That's probably the reason why they were on hold at the customs.

I know and I'm friends with a lot of people in Customs that are corrupt. In our area, if you work for Customs, bigatin ka na.
Nandun ang pera eh. Yung mga di dapat ilabas, papalabasin basta may lagayan. Ok lang yun ganun talaga eh.

But for them to nit and pick these goods for the people who need it is way beyond corruption.

F*CK THEM!
