 The Party of Regions Confirms the Intension to introduce 10% Currency Tax

The National Bank of Ukraine will insist on a tax on currency, but in the amount of at 10 and not 15%, as was suggested earlier.

This information was confirmed to Cesnor.NET by a member of the Party of Regions Vasyl Horbal.

Today on the faction council I heard that there is an initiative of the National Bank on 10%," said Horbal, noting that he has not seen an initiative registered in the parliament and is not familiar with its text.

The deputies also said that the bill 11433 on the currency transfer tax has previously been removed from consideration in the Verkhovna Rada.

Earlier in a commentary to Censor.NET Vasyl Horbal said he would not vote for the initiative of the NBU for a currency tax. "Previously I have the same position as last time - I will abstain from voting on the bill," said Horbal, stressing that the proposal of the National Bank is also criticized by Poroshenko and Tigipko.
