The Ministry of Agriculture wants to increase the tax for the use of aquatic biological resources

The Ministry of Agriculture in its bill proposes to increase the tax for the use of aquatic biological resources. The previous tax rates were formed in 2004. In the new edition, the tax on most types of fish is increased significantly.

As the "Russian newspaper", the document has already been agreed with the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Federal Tax Service and the Federal Security Service, as well as with the Federal Antimonopoly Service. For pollock harvested in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, the rate is proposed to be increased 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 an increase will be from ten 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 crab Kamchatka - from 35 thousand to 80 thousand rubles per ton.

Rates will be indexed annually taking into account the deflator coefficient. The new rates start at 4,8% of the average producer price. The exception is the rates for pink salmon, northern and comb shrimps, and Sea of ​​Okhotsk herring.

City-forming and settlement-forming enterprises will be able to pay 15% of the rate, as at present. But they will be obliged to carry out the functions of the socio-economic development of the settlements in which they are registered.

When processing catches on Russian-made fishing vessels or enterprises producing highly processed products, it will be possible to receive a tax deduction. The deduction will be 85%. However, it will not be applied when catching WBG within the investment quotas. The privilege is also provided for the implementation of coastal fishing with the delivery of fresh and chilled catches to the territory of coastal regions. Businesses will have the right to use one type of tax deduction.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, the new rates will increase tax revenues to the budget tenfold - up to 21 billion rubles. At the same time, the tax burden on industry enterprises will grow from 7,8% to 13%.
