  Author: Valentyn Gvozdiy, Managing Partner at GOLAW Attention!  Important changes to the taxation of non-residents. The Tax Code of Ukraine redefines the rules for taxation of income of non-residents in the form of interest on loans or financial loans to residents. It is established that such revenues in 2017 will be taxed at 5%.

However, rates for the use of such business operation of the non-resident must meet certain conditions:

  • advances to non-resident benefiting from loan or financial credit involved to provide loans or financial credit to resident;
  • resident, who paid interest are not residents of jurisdictions included in the list of “offshore” states (territories).

However, the envisaged exemption of income of non-resident in the form of interest on the loan or financial credit provided to the residents (subject to compliance pp. 141.4.11 of the Tax Code) paid by resident to non-residents or authorized persons:
