Russia VAT proposals following elections

Following the re-election of Russian President Putin, a number of changes to the VAT regime are being proposed to help meet election healthcare and infrastructure commitments. The possible changes include:

  • Dropping the planned cut in foodstuffs and medicines VAT rate to 10%
  • Introduction of a turnover tax of 4%

A rise in the 13% income tax rate is also being considered.
