On 9 December the New State Customs Service officially started working in Ukraine. "This is only the beginning of establishing a new state body that will really work for taxpayers. We managed to prevent more than 500 of the most odious leaders from joining the ranks of the new Customs Service, and to reduce the number of customs from 26 to 16 and to ensure an almost imperceptible transition from one state agency to another", Head of the State Customs Service Maksym Nefyodov emphasized.
At present, more than 50% of the employees were transferred to the new structure of the State Customs Service, and this process will continue in December. Apart from that, competitions for vacant posts will start in December.
