I understand that insurers include in the cost of production and sale of products, goods (works, services), taken into account during taxation, insurance premiums in their actual amount for voluntary insurance of civil liability of the carrier to the customs authorities. Thus, the amount of paid insurance premiums is reduced https://www.total-insurance.co.uk/courier-insurance/ tax base. Is that so?
