UAH 9.3 billion of own revenues over year: financial analysis of AH activity results

Over the past year, the own revenues of local budgets of 366 amalgamated hromadas (AHs), that in 2017 switched to direct interbudgetary relations with the state budget, grew by 87% and amounted to UAH 9.3 billion (+UAH 4.3 billion), informed Yanina Kazyuk, financial decentralisation coordinator of the Central Reform Office under MinRegion (with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme), commenting on the financial results of the local budgets of 366 amalgamated hromadas over January-December 2017.

According to the expert, the average indicator of own revenues per one AH resident increased by UAH 1390.9 and amounted to UAH 2989.2.

In total, that is, taking into account interbudgetary transfers from the state budget, the revenues of local budgets of 366 AHs amounted to UAH 28.8 billion.

Regarding the implementation of local budgets of 207 AHs, where the first local elections were held in 2016, and which received 60% of revenues from personal income tax to their local budgets only in 2017, their own resources increased by 2,9 times over the year and amounted to UAH 4.9 billion (+UAH 3.2 billion).

It is important to draw attention to the fact that the growth rate of own revenues of 159 AHs, which in 2016 received 60% of revenues from personal income tax to their budgets, made up +34.2% (+UAH 1.1 billion) over the year, exceeding the average index in Ukraine (which is – 31.0%).

In 2017, all 366 AHs received the infrastructure subvention in the amount of UAH 1.5 billion from the state budget. Hromadas directed these funds to the implementation of over 2 thousand infrastructure projects.

In addition, to implement development projects, AHs received part of the funds from the State Fund for Regional Development in the amount of UAH 392 million, and part of the subvention funds for the socio-economic development of some territories in the amount of UAH 412 million.

It is worth reminding that 665 amalgamated hromadas have switched to direct interbudgetary relations with the state budget in 2018.
