There are ||| bodies in focus of our committee scan today:

 

  • Committee on Budget

At its 18 March sitting, the committee considered the bill No.2782 amending Ukraine’s budget code because of the administrative reform conducted.

As the State Fiscal Service of Ukraine was formerly subjected to kind of delineation of its authorities and part of them was thereupon delegated to the then newly established Ukraine’s state tax service and state customs service (including all their bodies), both entrusted to effect state tax and customs policies correspondingly, the new bill has been drafted to bring the body of budget code definitions into line with the new reality.

The finance ministry conclusion upon the bill reads that the bill at issue is of no impact to the budget adopted and does not require any extra cost to be applied.

The committee thus recommended the parliament to take the bill on its first and second readings.

 

  • Verkhovna Rada temporary committee of inquiry on the legal status of war veterans

The committee has approved its biannual performance report at its recent regular sitting.

Members of the committee had also a special hearing upon the work of a task group in charge of monitoring over the carrying out the judgement of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine dated December 18, 2018 (No.12-r/2018) regarding the case on social protection of war veterans and their family members. Additionally, the committeemen approved the reshaped benches of the above task group and of another working group in charge of tackling the issues of establishing disability categories for servicemen and war veterans under the ongoing health care reform.

A resolution upon the committee performance report is to be soon tabled for consideration by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

 

  • Committee on Ukraine’s Integration into EU

Drafts of the labour code of Ukraine (bills Nos. 2410, 2410-1) and the employment law (bills Nos.2708-1, 2708-2) have been recognized by the committee as those in line with the Association Agreement and EU law. This decision was taken by the committee at its recent sitting.

The body also saw into the draft bill No.2671-1 amending some laws of Ukraine regarding personal data, as well as forms and conditions for giving assent to their handling. This paper in particular disentitles the finance ministry of the right to obtain and handle the data without consent. Public authorities and local governments will solely be entitled to handle the data upon obtaining the due consent.

Equally, as not going against EU law there were recognized two bills Nos.2571-2, 2571-3 that alter the Ukrainian legislation in the field of operations of the local banking system, as well as other two bills Nos.2338 and 2338-1 providing for lifting income ceiling for all undertakings of I, II and III groups that resort to a simplified tax system (STS).

Another couple of bills (Nos.2437, 2437-1) lifting the above ceiling – UAH 5 mn for II group single tax payers and UAH 7 mn for IIIs; and even higher UAH 1 mn for Is, UAH 5 mn for IIs and UAH 10 mn for IIIs correspondingly – were recognized as EU law- and Association Agreement-compliant as well.

As non-compliant with Ukraine’s euro-integration commitments was deemed to be the draft bill No.2070 that alters the Tax Code of Ukraine in terms of regaining by the Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts their ability to lure investments.
