However, not only economic reality resulted in diminishing of the market. Many importers report that their business is damaged by unprecedented proliferation of schemes of tax-free import of goods without customs control. The situation with baby diapers is good illustration. Usual leaders in the market see their consumers flee to less well-known brands whose principal advantage is the price. The main source of this advantage is import without paying the taxes at the border andoften internally. The goods are sold in the open markets or from vans without normal taxation and reporting.Import VAT alone thus accounts for 20% of the import price advantage. Reportedly, one of the private brands of the Polish low cost supermarket network occupies up to 10% of the baby diapersmarket.
