The laws that regulate legal framework for the Ministry of Income have been published
The Parliament amended the Tax and Customs Codes, as well as a number of laws. Thus, they created the conditions for the effective implementation of tax and customs policy in the country in connection with the establishment of the Ministry of income and taxes of Ukraine on the basis of the State Tax Service of Ukraine and the State Customs Service.
In particular, the Law of Ukraine № 404-VII amended the Tax Code, which defined the legal conditions of the single common tax administration system under the authorized central executive body - the Ministry of income and taxes.
The powers of the Ministry shall include the formulation and implementation of national tax and customs policies regarding the administration of taxes and fees, customs duties, the single payment and combating crime in these areas.
Law № 405-VII amends the Customs Code. Instead of "customs authorities", the terms "income and taxes authorities" and "customs (customs posts)" will be used. In addition, the standardization of service in the income and taxes authorities is being implementing - tax and customs officials will be engaged in the same civil service, will have the same procedure of conferring titles and the same level of legal and social protection. However, the law does not change the procedure of customs control and customs clearance, administration of customs payments, as well as the manner and ways to combat smuggling and customs violations.
Finally, the law number 406-VII amended 118 laws that somehow govern legal relationships in the state tax and customs services. Accordingly, these laws will now refer to income and taxes authorities. Also, this law provides that the functions of administration of a single social contribution will now be assigned to the Ministry of income and taxes.
