Crimea: since May 1, the VAT rate to be reduced in 5 times
On April 30 the State Council of the Crimea set the new rates for the VAT since May 1, 2014, which will range within 2-4%.
In particular, it is proposed to set 4% as the VAT basic rate, and 2% - for socially important commodities (food products, etc.).
Previously, the Government proposed to decrease the 20-percent VAT rate to the level of 18% and 10%, respectively.

In addition, the deputies wrote off all tax liabilities and debts of the tax payers as of March 1, 2014, recognizing them as non recoverable.
