Farmers are «knocked out», the preservation of special regimes of VAT

Deputies-agrarians managed to convince the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman the necessity of a special regime of VAT for farmers in 2017. This is stated in the message of the Ukrainian agrarian Confederation.

According to the report, the draft budget 2017 provides a considerable reduction in support to the agricultural sector with 12 billion to 5.5 billion. However, the amount is not final and can be significantly increased.

«Before the vote, Prime Minister Groysman met with members-farmers and promised that the text of the law will be amended. He had no objection to the preservation of special regimes of VAT in the part where he works today. That is the main support will be directed to animal, individual industries, horticulture and viticulture. Less support in the cultivation of grain crops», — said the President of Ukrainian agrarian Confederation Leonid Kozachenko.

According to him, there are two scenarios possible preservation of special regimes of VAT. First — if during the next visit of the IMF, scheduled for 26-30 October, it will be possible to convince them of the need for such solutions. The second will be found other sources for funding, but the principle is the allocation of funds will remain similar to that used now.

«During our meeting, Groysman said that he is ready to increase support to agriculture from 5.5 billion to approximately 12 billion hryvnia. Ie to increase the amount of another $ 7 billion through other sources, which will be agreed with the members-farmers and public agricultural «associations» — said Kozachenko.

«Economic Pravda» said that with the adoption of the first reading of the budget for the 2016 agricultural lobbyists nearly derailed the adoption of the budget, trying to bargain for benefits.

20 Oct Groysman promised in budget support to farmers by 10 billion the abolition of the special regimes of VAT was one of the requirements of the IMF.
