The new procedure for payment of the environmental tax

On 1 January 2013, in subparagraph 14.1.223 of paragraph 14.1 of Article 14 of the Tax Code ofUkraine the definition of "waste disposal" was changed. The new interpretation of waste disposal is apermanent disposal in specially designated areas.
Environmental tax payers are entities that are not engaged in entrepreneurial activities. Those arepublic enterprises, civic organizations and others.

Entities that temporarily store waste until their transfer for disposal, as of January 1, 2013 are notsubject to environmental tax, provided that they have the contract for the removal and disposalof waste. The contract determines when the entity shall transfer hazardous waste (batteries, tires,fluorescent lamps, etc.) to utilities or specialized enterprises for recycling and disposal.

If an entity does not have a contract for waste disposal, and they temporarily store such waste,including hazardous one (batteries, tires, fluorescent lamps, etc.), they pay the environmental tax.
