The Ministry of Finance has developed a new tax for the collection of money from the Russians for self-employed social guarantees of the state — we are talking about health and pension benefits. About this report “Izvestia” with reference to the representative of the Ministry of economic development, the new tax is also reflected in the project “the Basic directions budgetary, tax and customs tariff policy in 2019 and the planning period of 2020 and 2021 years”.
A single payment of revenue will be introduced from 2019, it will include taxes and insurance premiums. The document also suggests the introduction of a separate category of citizens who do not have salaried employees, but receive income, being unemployed. For self-employed people will create a new special tax regime, says the publication.
New tax for self-employed will be charged automatically via a mobile app through which citizens “will be able to exchange information with tax authorities, although tax reporting, they will not be available”.
Earlier, the Finance Ministry has proposed to impose is actually self-employed income fee and to charge three percent of services to consumers and six per cent with the service entity. Under the category of self-employed the Ministry of Finance was ready to take all non-working citizens whose income exceeds 10 million rubles a year.
All previous attempts to bring about 20 million self-employed people from the shadows was not successful, only hundreds of independently recorded their status. Now the Finance Ministry has decided to go from a consumer of services of self-employed: the Agency intends to create conditions that would encourage users of services to demand from self-employed receipt and warranty. Pilot tax regime, the authorities plan to hold in several regions of Russia for five years.
Russian authorities have been trying to tax the self-employed. The government are not satisfied that they are in a gray area — receive income from its own activities, but do not pay off her taxes and contributions for social, pension and health benefits. A number of ideas have already failed, in particular the patent of the self-employed received a total of hundreds of about 15-20 million self-employed people.
Wednesday, July 11, it became known that the Federal tax service (FNS) requires amendments to the legislation that effectively deprive the Russians of tax secrecy — the Department has demanded full access to all Bank accounts of Russians.
