“We have statistics for the 22nd year. About 9 billion rubles, or rather 8.975 billion, this is the effect of income tax. A total of 169 companies took advantage of this benefit. And they also saved more than 6 thousand million rubles in insurance premiums,” the official said.
According to Shpak, companies will be able to use this money for R&D and their own development. “But we do not plan to stop there, we will expand the list of possible beneficiaries of these benefits,” he added.
However, the main thing is the purpose for which the saved funds will be spent.
“It is important that the savings are specifically allocated to the development of productive capacities, technological capacities, human resources. And we are currently working on the corresponding government decrees,” he added.
