欧盟因英国纵容进口中国服装逃税对其罚款20亿欧元
Brussels claims €2bn from UK after customs fraud

        Brussels is seeking to recover around €2bn from the UK for failing to crack down on customs fraud over six years by Chinese clothing importers.        布鲁塞尔方面正寻求从英国身上追索约20亿欧元,理由是英国海关未能打击进口中国服装的商家长达六年的欺诈活动。
        The European Commission sent a formal notice on Thursday that Britain infringed EU law and needs to pay customs duties that it failed to collect on undervalued textiles and footwear imported from China.        欧盟委员会(European Commission)周四发出正式通知,称英国违反了欧盟(EU)法律,需要补缴部分关税——由于从中国进口的纺织品和鞋类的价值被低估,英国未能收到这部分关税。
        “Despite having been informed of the risks of fraud relating to the importation of textiles and footwear originating in the People’s Republic of China since 2007, and despite having been asked to take appropriate risk control measures, the UK failed to take action to prevent the fraud,” said the commission in a statement.        “尽管自2007年以来一直被告知与进口源于中华人民共和国的纺织品和鞋类有关的欺诈风险,尽管一直被要求采取适当的风控措施,但英国未能采取行动防止这一欺诈,”欧盟委员会在一份声明中说。
        EU officials estimated that the UK’s failure to act — between November 2011 and December 2017 — caused EU budget losses of €2.7bn, or around €2bn after collection costs.        欧盟官员估计,英国在2011年11月至2017年12月期间的不作为,给欧盟预算造成了27亿欧元损失,剔除征税成本后为20亿欧元。
        The UK government said: “We do not recognise the European Commission’s estimate of alleged duty loss.”        英国政府表示:“我们不认可欧盟委员会对所谓关税损失的估算值。”
        OLAF, the EU’s anti-fraud office, formally recommended that the commission recover the lost duties from the Britain last year. The watchdog’s three-year investigation accused the UK of failing to act on repeated warnings that some Chinese importers were avoiding customs duties by using fictitious and false invoices and declaring that items were worth a fraction of their true value.        去年,欧盟反欺诈办公室(OLAF)正式建议,欧盟委员会应追索在英国损失的关税。这家监管机构历时三年的调查指控英国没有针对反复的警告采取行动——这些警告称,一些进口中国商品的商家使用虚假发票和将这些商品的价值申报为其真实价值的一小部分来逃避关税。
        The probe cited examples such as imported women’s trousers that were valued below €1 per kg — less than 5 per cent of the average customs valuation for such products across the EU.        调查列举了进口女裤等例子,这些进口的女裤的价格低于每公斤1欧元,还不到欧盟各地海关对此类产品平均估价的5%。
