The Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, together with the International Monetary Fund, is considering the possibility of switching to the Polish system of taxation of individual entrepreneurs. Ukraine, having studied the examples of several countries, took the Polish model of taxation of sole proprietors as a model.
This was stated by the chairman of the parliamentary committee on finance, tax and customs policy Danylo Hetmantsev in an interview with "News. Live".
Hetmantsev explained that the Polish model of taxation of sole proprietors provides for higher transaction limits – 2 million euros, while in Ukraine the limit is 7.8 million UAH (198 thousand euros).
In addition, tax rates vary for different activities.
For example, in Poland, trade is taxed at 3%, and a low tax is also set for production. And taxes on services are much higher – from 12% to 20%.
"Our task is to differentiate small businesses from medium and large ones. This is now the main problem of the single tax and the taxation system for small businesses... This is the problem of taxation with a single tax – the inability to distinguish between large and medium-sized businesses and small ones, when large businesses mimic small ones," Hetmantsev said.
To recap, the dollar will cost more than previously expected – experts explained what Ukrainians should expect.
