Team newly elected President Vladimir Zelensky believes that innovations will only help the citizens of Ukraine
Supporters of the winner of the presidential election before the inauguration prepared a draft law on introduction in Ukraine of the universal Declaration of income. In interview to the edition “Censor.No” expert in tax and financial policy Danil Getmantsev told the details of a large-scale reform.
According to the expert, change of the Vladimir Zelensky will affect the Ukrainians, who receive money from the state budget. First and foremost, it is retired. The team of the future President expect that the procedure will make citizens become more responsible and carefully monitor the economic situation in the country.
“A General Declaration is the chip, which will allow us to approach to the European question. Not only demand from the state, but also from yourself. Now you know how much this month has to pay the state? Usually people find it difficult to answer this question. You don’t feel “how” you should state,” says Daniel Getmantsev.
According to experts, in the framework of the bill, the expert considers it necessary to conduct a tax Amnesty among Ukrainians. It should affect all taxpayers, excluding officials. As noted by Getmantsev, last long brought their money in offshore accounts and electronic filing. As a good example, he referred to Argentina, which spent something like three years ago:
“I like the history of Argentina, where in 2016 the new President, Mauricio Macri, had a capital Amnesty and encouraged to return the money to the country. And it is allowed to bring into the light of God 117 billion dollars, not only in money but also in other assets. Because Amnesty need not only capital, but also, say, property, which is in Ukraine and abroad, and other values.”
Danil Getmantsev stressed that the tax Amnesty does not apply to incomes received by a criminal way. This is the moment spelled out separately in the bill. If the official will be exonerated, and then convict corruption crime — money is still confiscated under the Criminal code of Ukraine.
Recall the “Four laws”: Zelensky admitted that he will do as President in the first place.
As reported Politeka, Ukrainians will vote under the new rules: the team prepares Zelensky revolutionary law.
Also Politeka wrote that Zelensky has reacted strongly to the law on language: “My principled position.”
