4 Public ad­min­is­tra­tion

Kyiv Post - - News -

Dur­ing a meet­ing with busi­nesses on June 16, Ro­man Nasirov, the new head of Ukraine’s State Fis­cal Ser­vice, an­nounced up­com­ing re­forms ap­proved by the IMF. They in­clude chang­ing the tax­a­tion sys­tem and struc- tu­ral changes within the fis­cal ser­vice and cus­toms. “The tax law amend­ments adopted in De­cem­ber were not a real tax re­form,” he said. “They were lim­ited to timely and spo­radic changes.” The num­ber of tax au­dits is now ex­pected to shrink by 30-40 per­cent. An “elec­tronic cab­i­net” was launched for taxpayers to man­age taxes online.

On May 16, Par­lia­ment moved to limit the scope of power of the mo­nop­o­lis­tic, Sovi­etera state or­ga­ni­za­tion, the Public Hous­ing and Util­i­ties Ser­vice (ZhEK). A new law gives apart­ment-owner groups and com­mu­nity as­so­ci­a­tions the right to act as le­gal en­ti­ties, re­plac­ing the state-run ser­vice provider, should they choose. Such as­so­ci­a­tions can now hire sub­con­trac­tors and set up heat­ing me­ters and other energy-sav­ing re­sources.
