“Social contributions will reduce from 30% to 26%”

The abolition of the unified social tax and splitting it into three parts — a blunder of the state. Six years later, was forced to admit the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov, speaking at the annual Collegium of the Federal tax service. From next year the administration of all insurance premiums, including resources channeled to the Pension Fund, will be transferred to the tax, and employers will start to pay for them in one payment. Thus, FNS will become the main donor countries: the share of services in total income will rise from current 52% to 75%. In this case, as told “MK” a senior Federal official, it is possible that the burden on business from the wage Fund be reduced from the current 30% to 26-28%. And this is a real sensation.

If a decline does happen, it will be possible to talk about significant relief for entrepreneurs. Of course, nobody will applaud, but the business as a whole will provoditsya.

“FNS is working better than others, so for the next few years you hung a lot of things,” said first Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov.

In addition to consolidating tax in the hands of all insurance payments (to the Pension Fund, mandatory medical insurance Fund and social insurance Fund. — “MK”) another important decision is the integration of information systems of the Federal tax service, Federal customs service and Identified with the subsequent establishment of a mechanism for fiscal administration of all payments, including the excise tax on alcohol.

“It was believed to combine the FTS and FCS in one Department, — Shuvalov continued. — This option only in order to find the best ways to achieve results. In the end system to look like in 2-3 years time will show… the President will decide”.

By the way, about the excise tax — the most problematic of fees. The fact that the state is in arrears, it is itself to blame: the grey market increased after the raised was the excise rate to 500 rubles per liter of ethyl alcohol, which is several times more than, for example, in Belarus and Kazakhstan.

In addition, efficiency is impossible without solving the other two problems — the marking of products using RFID tags, and the introduction of new cash registers with an online data transfer for all transactions in the FTS. It will be operational from mid-2018. Thus, the tax will provide tracking of movement of goods from the producer to the end consumer and closed-chain control.

“In the framework of the EAEU our colleagues threw us a bone in the form of fur products, — says the official. While marked only those goods that it is not enough. It is necessary to disseminate the experience to vital medicines, foodstuffs, light industry products. However, this is actively resisting developers of shadow supply.”

It is worth noting that, despite the downturn in the economy, last year there was an increase in tax revenue. In the consolidated budget of the Federal tax service has collected 13.8 billion rubles, which is 9% higher than a year earlier. The main growth was achieved due to so-called non-oil revenue: fees tax profit increased by 9.5%, value added tax and property taxes each by 12%.

“The market of consumer electronics at lower volumes we are seeing an increase in tax payments four times — said the head of the FTS Mikhail Mishustin. Similar situation on the precious metals market, where almost reduced to zero the number of suspicious transactions”.

Finally, another important event of 2016 will be that Russia will join the agreement on the exchange of information according to uniform standards of the OECD (Organisation for economic cooperation and development. — “MK”). It involves automatic exchange of financial account information and assets tax residents among competent authorities 79 developed countries in the world.
