The Ministry of Finance proposed to oblige Russians abroad to pay taxes in Russia
The ministry also proposed exempting compensation payments for remote workers from personal income tax and simplifying the procedure for providing social tax deductions
The Ministry of Finance proposed to oblige employees of Russian companies working remotely abroad to pay taxes in Russia. The relevant amendments to the legislation are included in the draft federal law prepared by the ministry.
“Paid by domestic organizations— by employers, remuneration to remote workers located outside the country are classified as income from Russian sources,— the document says.
Other proposed innovations include:
- to extend the rate of income tax payable to the budget at a rate of 3% until 2030;
- introduce the concept of an electronic bank guarantee;
- exempt from VAT the services of a developer when transferring non-residential premises in an apartment building to equity holders;
- exempt from personal income tax compensation payments to remote workers;
- simplify the procedure for granting social tax deductions;
- provide citizens with disabled children or wards with a standard tax deduction, with no age limit.
In May, the Federal Security Service (FSB) disclosed data on the number of Russians traveling abroad in the first quarter of the year. According to the intelligence service, 3.88 million Russian citizens went abroad— 36% less than in the last quarter of 2021, but 46% more than in January—March last year.
More than 40% of Russians' trips abroad are to post-Soviet countries (including Abkhazia and South Ossetia), the Association of Tour Operators (ATOR) noted. The outbound flow to the countries of the post-Soviet space is predominantly non-tourist in nature, the ATOR pointed out. Russians also travel to countries bordering Russia (Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, China) mainly for non-tourist purposes (in the statistics of the FSB, the main purpose of the visit is considered “private”).
