It is proposed to add a fixed rate of UAH 20,000 to the 1.5% military tax. They offer reservations for up to 50% of employees liable for military service.
The Verkhovna Rada is preparing a bill that could significantly change the approach to reserving military personnel. Deputies propose introducing a monthly payment that guarantees a deferment from mobilization for different categories of workers, Censor.net reports, citing Forbes, which has a draft document at its disposal.
Deputies of the Verkhovna Rada Economic Committee have been working for several weeks on a new bill changing the employee reservation process. The main difference from the concept of the Office of the President proposed at the end of 2023 is the refusal to link it to the amount of wages and deductions of personal income tax or unified social tax.
Deputies propose to establish a monthly fixed payment, after which the company will be able to book an employee regardless of position. The main condition is that the company must work “in white” and pay taxes to the budget.
“The establishment of any criteria (for wages – ed.) will be perceived by society as a division into classes. The enterprise can independently choose which employees they want to book,” explained the change in concept, the head of the economic committee and co-author of the bill, Dmitry Natalukha.
Deputies propose introducing an additional payment to the military levy for each reserved employee, that is, up to 1.5% of the military levy is added to a fixed rate of UAH 20,000.
< p >The idea of the bill is to give the opportunity to book staff for all enterprises, and not just critical ones, and also to establish a monthly fixed payment, after which the company will be able to book an employee regardless of position.
This could bring from 18 billion to 155 billion UAH per year to the Ukrainian budget.
Currently, 538,000 men are booked in Ukraine, including civil servants and workers military administrations, the text of the bill says.
The largest share of those reserved is in the energy sector – 27.9%; agro-industrial sector – 15.2%; industry and transport – 12.6% and 12.5%, respectively. The share of employees of the Central executive authorities and military administrations is 5.2%.
According to the people's deputies of the initiative, linking it to the military tax will ensure the rapid administration of the tax and secure the flow of funds exclusively for the needs of the army.
Up to 50% of military personnel are offered to reserve >.
Recall that on January 16, the government allowed enterprises of the military-industrial complex to book workers without restrictions on the number. Also, the reservation will not depend on military rank, age and military specialty.
