In the first months of the war, the Verkhovna Rada introduced a number of tax concessions — in particular, it reduced the tax rate from 5% to 2% of turnover for taxpayers of the third group of single tax, and also allowed the payment of such a tax not only for simpletons, but also for all enterprises with an income of up to 10 billion hryvnias Officials explained this decision by the need to support business and bring the economy out of a state of shock.
However, such relaxations had a negative impact on budget revenues.
According to the calculations of Yaroslav Zhelezniak, the deputy chairman of the tax committee of BP, the state does not receive at least UAH 500-700 million per month. According to Mr. Hetmantsev’s estimates, losses amounted to “up to UAH 10 billion” during the 8 months of preferential rates.
In total, 313,000 people moved by 2%. entrepreneurs, including about 40,000 — legal entities.
