The draft law of the Ministry of Finance, which proposes to eliminate the possibility of not paying personal income tax to those who work for a Russian company while abroad, received a positive conclusion from an independent anti-corruption expertise. It has already been sent to the government.
“In the submitted bill, no corruption-causing factors have been identified,” says the document, which is at the disposal of Izvestia.
The Ministry of Finance confirmed to Izvestia the preparation of the bill and its submission to the Cabinet of Ministers. They explained that now employees who work remotely abroad and receive salaries from Russian employers may not pay taxes anywhere at all.
“This happens as soon as they lose their tax resident status in Russia, that is, when they spend more than 183 days a year outside the Russian Federation. With this bill, the Ministry of Finance proposed to fairly consider these payments received from sources in the Russian Federation for the purpose of taxing personal income tax, ”the ministry’s press service explained.
At the same time, they noted that a separate issue is the size of the tax rate for such income. Now for individuals it is being discussed at the level of 13-15%, the ministry said.
