The Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Finance will create a working group on taxes under the State Duma Committee

The Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Finance are planning to organize a special working group on taxes at the site of the profile committee of the State Duma, said Deputy Head of the Ministry of Energy Pavel Sorokin. According to him, this is necessary for the prompt elaboration of tax measures to stimulate the oil and gas industry.

“The creation of such a group is an important decision that will allow us to bring our positions closer together in a very short time and come up with additional initiatives for the development of the industry. Within the framework of this body, initiatives on various groups of reserves will be worked out, ”said Mr. Sorokin following a meeting on taxation of the oil and gas industry. His words are quoted in the Telegram channel of the Ministry of Energy.

On May 1, the adjusted damper mechanism began to work in the oil industry. The issue of damper adjustment arose after the increase in fuel prices at the beginning of the year. As a result, in March the government decided to lower the indicative price, thereby increasing the amount of payments to oil companies.

More information about the damper – in the publication of “Kommersant” “The budget will be driven through oil.”
