What are we talking about?
On Wednesday, December 27, the Cabinet of Ministers approved the National Revenue Strategy for 2024-2030. This was one of the structural “beacons” for continued cooperation with the International Monetary Fund.
As Prime Minister Denis Shmygal stated, the goal of the strategy is to strengthen the fiscal capacity of the state, adapt tax and customs legislation to EU standards, and create incentives for post-war recovery and economic growth.
After this, the director of economic programs at the Ukrainian Institute of the Future analytical center, Anatoly Amelin, said that the government strategy envisages the appearance of a new tax for Ukrainians. According to him, any receipts to an individual’s card will allegedly be subject to an 18% tax.
