Ukraine: Bill 5719, adopted yesterday, provides for a change in the mechanism of crediting and distribution of retail tax between local budgets as of 1st April 2022. This relates to an amendment to the Tax Code, adopted at the end of 2021, requiring producers or importers to declare maximum retail prices for tobacco products to the tax authority. The amendment also switched responsibility for paying retail tobacco tax from retailers to manufacturers and/or importers. The tax rate is 5% of the tax base, which is the value of the maximum retail price, including VAT and excise tax.
