On 15 September, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine sent a draft law on the State Budget of Ukraine for 2019 for consideration of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine (No. 9000).

Analysis of peculiarities and innovations for local budgets in 2019 is prepared by Yanina Kazyuk, financial decentralisation coordinator, and Viktor Ventsel, expert of the Financial Monitoring Group of the Central Reform Office under MinRegion (with the support of the U-LEAD with Europe Programme).

  • introduction of a land tax for forest land and establishment of a tax rate per one hectare of forest land in accordance with Articles 274 and 277 of the Tax Code of Ukraine;
  • PIT on the income coming from the lease (sublease, emphyteusis) of land, land plots (shares) by natural persons to the tax agents will be paid to the corresponding budget at the location of such objects of lease (sublease, emphyteusis);
  • enrollment of 5% of rent payment for the use of mineral resources for the extraction of minerals of national value (except for rent payment for the use of mineral resources for oil, natural gas and gas condensate extraction) to local self-government budgets at the place of extraction of relevant minerals (as of today it is enrolled in proportions: 25% - to oblast budgets, 75% - to the state budget) from 1 January 2019.
  • preservation of a simplified taxation system for single tax payers of the I-IV groups, as well as assigning private entrepreneurs, who carry out activities exclusively within the limits of the farming enterprise, to the fourth group (agricultural producers);
  • preservation of the norm for the enrollment of 13.44% of the excise tax on fuel to local budgets – with UAH 7.4 billion forecasted;

The provision of primary healthcare to the population in 2019 is proposed to be carried out from the state budget under a separate budget programme through the National Health Service of Ukraine (UAH 15.3 billion are foreseen).

The total resource of local budgets for 2019 makes up UAH 588.9 billion.
