KIEV, December 30. /TASS/. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk on Tuesday unveiled new measures in the country’s taxation system, envisaging luxury and real estate levies and lower social security tax.
“In order to protect the most vulnerable social groups and introduce minimal standards exempt from taxation, the government has proposed taxing real estate at 24 hryvnias [$1.5] per square meter but only for apartments of over 60 sq m and dwelling houses of over 120 sq m,” Yatsenyuk said at a final press conference.
Aside from a housing levy, the Ukrainian government is imposing a luxury tax. Specifically, the tax will be levied on luxury cars.
According to Yatsenyuk, this relates to expensive cars with engines of over 3 liters and not older than five years. The luxury tax will also be levied on jewelry sales.
The Ukrainian government has also introduced a new rate of the country’s single social security tax. The tax rate has been cut to 16.4% from the current 41% but only for enterprises that meet certain criteria.
Specifically, “an enterprise must increase average wages by 150% compared with last year. The second criterion is that wages should be no less than three minimum wages set by the state and equalling 3,600 hryvnias [$225].”.
