On March 1, 2018, the Verkhovna Rada registered the Draft Law “On amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine and Certain Legislative Acts Concerning Reduction of the Added Tax Value, Reforming the Simplified Taxation System, Accounting and Reporting, Increasing the Transparency of Settlement Operations in Respect of European Practice” No. 8089 . The Draft Law provided for the abolition of 3 groups of single tax for individual entrepreneurs.
The Draft Law could have seriously damaged the IT-industry access to human capital. Because basically, IT-industry has work relations based on a contract basis with employees.
The Board of the IT-Committee has publicly expressed its position on a situation of the adoption of the Draft Law. On March 19, the author of the Draft of Law has withdrawn it. The IT-committee is grateful to the author of the Draft Law (Andriy Shinkovich) for his willingness to hear the position of the business.
