 FOR (+) I voted in favour of the Resolution on fighting customs fraud and protecting EU own resources. Traditional own resources, comprised mainly of duties on imports from outside the EU and sugar levies, account for around 12.8 % of EU own resources. In early 2017 the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) concluded an investigation into a case of customs fraud in the UK, the main conclusions of which appear in the 2017 OLAF activity report. OLAF calculated a loss for EU budget own resources of EUR 1.987 billion in terms of lost customs duties due on textiles and shoes imported from China through the UK in the period 2013-2016. As a means of comparison, in 2016 OLAF recommended the financial recovery of a total amount of EUR 631.1 million as a result of 272 investigations it carried out. The European Court of Auditors has pointed out that there is no harmonised and standardised application of customs controls by Member States and that this may incentivise fraudsters to choose the weakest link in the chain to perform their fraudulent imports. The Resolution calls on the Commission to develop a suitable methodology and produce periodic estimates of the customs gap as from 2019.

 FOR (+) Glasovala sem za predlog resolucije o boju proti carinskim goljufijam in zaščiti lastnih sredstev EU.
Na tujih trgih posluje vedno več podjetij, tako znotraj držav članic EU kot tudi z državami izven območja EU. Obsežne utaje DDV v zvezi z uvozom z zlorabo začasne prekinitve plačila DDV ali tako imenovanega carinskega postopka 42 so še vedno prisotne v vseh državah članicah.
Po podatkih Evropskega urada za boj proti goljufijam je z uvozi preko Združenega kraljestva prišlo do izgube DDV v višini približno 3,2 milijarde evrov med letoma 2013 in 2016.
