The article provides commentaries on  the Draft Law No. 3357 as of 26.10.2015 “On Amendments to the Tax Code of Ukraine regarding tax liberalization”.

It is noted that the Draft Law contains some positive aspects, but there are a number of proposals that cause a negative reaction. One of such negative elements is considered to be a proposal to include into the Tax Code yet unspecified institute of “tax consultants in the law”.

Particular attention in the article is paid to para. 4.1.9 of the Tax Code of Ukraine which stipulates that changes to any tax elements and duties cannot be made later than six months before the next fiscal period in which new rules and rates will be applicable.

Read the article on “Kontrakty” web-site.

For reference:

Similar issue regarding implementation of tax consultants’ institution had already occurred in Poland, but the Constitutional Tribunal concluded that it requires certain time, at least a month, to settle this issue.
