Earned Revenues of the Amalgamated Communities have Increased Twice - Data for 7 Months

The earned revenues of local budgets of the 366 amalgamated territorial communities over the period of January to July 2017 have increased by almost twice in comparison with the same period in 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 with Europe Programme).

The expert recalled that 366 amalgamated territorial communities have entered into direct inter-budgetary relations with the state budget in 2017, 207 of which communities received 60% of revenues to their local budgets from the personal income tax in the current year alone. "The own resources of those 207 ATCs, in comparison with the same period in the previous year, have increased by three times and totalled UAH 2.5 billion (+ UAH 1.6 billion)", Yanina Kaziuk informed.

The other 159 ATCs, already in 2016, received to their local budgets 60% of the personal income tax paid. The growth rate of their earned revenues has increased by 38% (+ UAH 612 million) for that period.

Consequently, the earned revenues of local budgets of the 366 amalgamated territorial communities have increased, in general, by almost twice and totalled UAH 4.7 billion (+ UAH 2.2 billion).

"The growth rate of earned revenues of the ATCs (+ 38%) is higher than the average growth rate of local budgets in Ukraine which totals 32%", Yanina Kaziuk emphasised.
