The Committee on Tax Policy of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament) supported the draft law on the abolition of the 2% tax for self-employed persons (SEP). In Ukraine, they plan to return the previous tax scheme.

A member of the committee, the MP from "Holos" Yaroslav Zheleznyak, writes about this in his Telegram channel.

This decision is expected to be effective from July 1, 2023.

The document also proposes to cancel tax benefits for SEP groups 1 and 2, restore documentary checks and return fines for non-use of the registrar of settlement transactions.

This bill is planned to be considered this week. The change in taxation is one of the conditions of the International Monetary Fund.

  • On March 15, 2022, the Verkhovna Rada adopted draft law No. 7137-d, which introduced 40 innovations for business during martial law. In particular, he allowed companies with a turnover of up to 10 billion hryvnias to switch to a simplified taxation system, as in the third group of SEP. Instead of VAT (20%) and income tax (18%), they will pay 2% of income.
