If now taxes are paid separately for each of its types, with the preparation of documents also separately for each payment, then from 2023 taxes and contributions will have to be paid in a single payment order. With the introduction of the UNTS, there will be no situations where there is an overpayment on one tax and there is a debt on another.
The money transferred will be credited to the Single Tax Account (UST) of each payer. “These amounts will then be distributed by the tax service itself according to their destination, based on the accrual data of the payer: first, the debt will be closed, starting with the tax with the previous payment term, then the accruals with the term current payment, the last – fines, interest and penalties. If the payment terms coincide, then the UTP will be distributed in proportion to the amounts of the obligations, “the Federal Tax Service (FTS) said in a statement.
For legal entities and entrepreneurs, the UNS has its own characteristics: a single term for payment of taxes – no later than the 28th day and the provision of the main types of tax declaration no later than the 25th day after the end of the corresponding tax period.
The change is relevant mainly for companies: natural persons can pay taxes in a single payment since 2019.
