New "Kaliningrad amendments" are being prepared for the Tax Code of the Russian Federation

12 / 02 / 21

Residents of the Special Economic Zone in the Kaliningrad Region can expect to extend the period for paying social insurance contributions at reduced rates. The term of the benefit is planned to be extended from 7 years to 10 years from the start date of the investment project.

The corresponding proposal of the regional authorities has been formalized as a draft law and is now being coordinated at the level of the government of the Russian Federation (available to the editors)

It is expected that after the elimination of the comments of the legal department, the document will be considered by the legislative commission of the government of the Russian Federation and then submitted to the State Duma during the spring session. The changes are being made in accordance with the instructions of the President.

The project involves the expansion of the norm introduced 3 years ago for residents registered in the SEZ after January 1, 2018 and until January 1, 2022. It provides that residents pay contributions for pension insurance in the amount of 6%, for compulsory health insurance - 0.1% until 2025. In addition to an additional 3 years of grace period, the authors of the new regulation propose to remove the limitation on the upper term for registration of enterprises.

Another change included in the draft concerns the taxation of property of organizations. It is proposed to supplement Article 385.1 of the Tax Code of the Russian Federation with a clause that should limit the practice of transferring equipment and premises from one resident to another and their multiple withdrawal from taxation. "The special procedure for paying tax on the property of organizations does not apply to property (created or acquired during the implementation of an investment project <...>), in respect of which the specified procedure was previously applied by a resident, in the event of its transfer (acquisition) to another resident of the Special Economic Zone in Kaliningrad areas for the implementation of the investment project, ”the document says.
