The Minister of Finance of the Russian Federation Anton Siluanov called the tax burden on labor prohibitive. According to him, for employers it is necessary to reduce the rate of insurance premiums in social funds, but without prejudice to the budget.

Clarifies RBC, now for each employee, the employer must pay an insurance premium at a rate of 30%. Of these, 22% goes to a pension fund, 5,1% - to compulsory medical insurance, and 2,9% to social insurance in the Social Insurance Fund.

In addition to insurance premiums, 13% of income tax is charged on employee salaries. Together, this leads to an increase in the share of gray salaries. So in 2018 they amounted to 13,06 trillion rubles, or almost 13% of total GDP.

At the same time, the government says that if the load is reduced even by 10%, social funds will receive less than two trillion rubles. The authorities are looking for an opportunity to compensate for these funds.
