«In all the neighboring countries, especially in EU countries, on average (pay tax and single social contribution – ed.) about half of the population. That is, in Ukraine, we would have to have about 20 million to real working people and those who pay taxes» – he said at a conference in Kyiv on Thursday, December 29.

Nasirov added that of these 10.5 million 30-40% received the minimum wage level in 2016 – 1600 UAH per month.

According to Nasirov, this year with the decentralization of revenues of local budgets will grow from 90 billion to 140-145 billion UAH, including the tax on income of natural persons will be approximately 77-78 billion.

The head of the SFS said. that the implementation of standards to increase from 1 January the minimum wage doubled to 3200 UAH per month – will increase the income of local budgets by 1-2 billion a month.

Previously, the Finance Ministry also reported that on the minimum wage scheduled to increase in 2017, will not require additional expenditures from the state budget — the portion of wages will lead from the shadows, and on these salaries will be paid by additional taxes, which will increase the minimum wage.
