The deputies will raise the tax rate for Russian citizens who left the country after the start of a special military operation. Interfax writes about this with reference to the statement of the deputy head of the United Russia faction Andrei Isaev.
“For the self-employed, for individual entrepreneurs, preferential tax regimes have now been created in our country. Freelancers actually pay 4-6%. In order to prevent people who have gone abroad from abusing this, State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin proposed to cancel preferential regimes for them, ”says Isaev.
According to the lawmakers’ idea, those who left Russia will have to draw up employment contracts and then increase their taxes, or register as individual entrepreneurs, but not enjoy the established benefits.
The proposed rules will apply only to those who will be tax non-residents, that is, they will spend more than 183 days outside of Russia within 12 months. Those who work under an employment contract and become non-residents must pay income tax of 30% instead of 13%.
Earlier it became known that the Bank of Russia will test international cryptocurrency payments for the first time. This will happen under an experimental legal regime.
