From now on tax and customs services will work separately in Ukraine.
The Cabinet of Ministers approved the provision on tax and customs services. The decision was approved at a government meeting this Wednesday.
In December 2018, the government decided to divide the State Fiscal Service into two separate central executive bodies, the State Tax Service and the State Customs Service.
It is assumed that the State Tax Service will implement tax policy. The State Customs Service will be responsible for the observance of customs legislation.
As noted in the explanatory note to the draft resolution, the main goal is to regulate the activities of these two services, to recognize their legal status, basic rights and obligations of employees.
“The adoption of the draft resolution will allow creating conditions for the full implementation by the services of their functions in the field of tax and customs policy,” the explanatory note says.
