The Increase in Earned Revenues of the ATC is One of the Arguments Proving the Effectiveness of Decentralisation, Yanina Kaziuk

The financial capability of local self-government in the 366 amalgamated territorial communities (ATCs) is gaining strength. The earned revenues of their local budgets increased almost by twice over the first six months of the current year. The increase totalled UAH 1.9 billion, in comparison with the same period of the previous year.  It was so informed by Yanina Kaziuk, Financial Decentralisation Coordinator of the Central Office for Reforms at the Ministry of Regional Development (with the assistance of the U-LEAD Programme).

She stated the data issued by the Ministry of Finance proving that the earned revenues of local budgets of the amalgamated territorial communities who transferred to direct inter-budgetary relations totalled UAH 3.9 billion.

The average amount of earned revenues per one resident of the amalgamated territorial community increased by UAH 616 (from UAH 640 to UAH 1,256).

The expert noted that the 207 ATCs where the first elections were held in 2016, in this year only, received 60% of the revenues to their local budgets from the personal income tax. The financial analysis proved that own resources of those ATCs, in comparison with the same period in the previous year, have increased by three times and totalled UAH 2 billion (+ UAH 1,374 million).

As regards the 159 ATCs whose budgets received 60% of the paid personal income tax already in 2016, the rate of growth of their earned revenues for that period increased by 41% (+ UAH 549 million), which indicator is higher than average in Ukraine (the rate of growth of the earned revenues of local budgets of Ukraine is 34%).

Inclusive of inter-budget transfers from the state budget, the revenues of the general fund of local budgets of the 366 amalgamated territorial communities totalled UAH 9 billion.

"The increase in revenues of the amalgamated communities proves once more that they have chosen the right way of development by having become active participants of the local self-government reform. The financial decentralisation made it possible for those communities to resolve the issues which could not have been resolved due to the lack of funds. The reform is working and yields positive results", Yanina Kaziuk commented.
