Nasirov believes that the retail excise tax must be moved to the basic rate of tax

The head of the SFS is convinced that the retail rate of excise duty on excisable goods must be included in the tax.

The failure of the retail excise tax distorts fair competition in the market, so it needs to be moved to the basic rate of tax, said the Chairman of the state fiscal service of Ukraine Roman Nasirov.

“The problem of the “second excise” or business turnover, in fact, is a retail excise tax on specific products. I think it’s a question that worries an honest legitimate business. Because they have no other option as his show,” he said.

According to him, the failure of the retail excise tax creates competitive conditions.

“This applies to alcohol, and especially of such goods as fuel, gasoline, because 5 percent is a crazy mark-up (rate of excise duty, which does not pay a grey market – ed)”, – he said.

Nasirov is convinced that the retail rate of excise duty on excisable goods must be included in the tax.

“We believe that it best bet to move to a common rate, and then depending on the sales regions to allocate it. Moreover, from the point of view of distribution, is not our problem. You want to allocate as honest as possible to the local budgets came money,” he concluded.

Earlier it was reported that Ukraine has risen in the ranking of light taxes.
