EastRussia Bulletin: Fish will become more expensive
The government plans to increase the tax rates for the use of aquatic biological resources. The changes will primarily affect the fishing industry.
The Ministry of Agriculture has developed a draft amendment to the Tax Code, proposing to increase the rate of collection for the use of aquatic biological resources. The document was approved by the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Federal Tax Service, the Federal Security Service and the Federal Antimonopoly Service. In particular, it is proposed to increase the rate for pollock harvested in the Sea of Okhotsk from 3,5 thousand to 4,3 thousand rubles per ton, for pollock from other fishing areas - from 2 thousand to 4,3 thousand rubles per ton. , for flounder - from 10 rubles to 2,1 thousand rubles per ton, for halibut - from 3,5 thousand to 12,6 thousand rubles per ton, for sockeye - from 20 thousand to 30 thousand rubles per ton , for Kamchatka crab - from 35 thousand to 80 thousand rubles per ton.
Each year the rates are supposed to be indexed taking into account the deflator coefficient. The previous tax rates were established in 2004, and the new ones are 4,8% of the average producer price. Nevertheless, city-forming and settlement-forming enterprises will still be able to pay 15% of the rate, while pledging to implement measures for the socio-economic development of settlements.
